Since 1978 I have been fortunate to sail wooden boats. In 2006 I set out to find a Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for single-handed expedition sailing. This is the continuing story of how it came to be, our adventures, notes on the maritime world and other things I don't want to forget...

Stretching Out the Glide

May 20 Thursday     5th day on water

Out Bath Creek at 0900. Caught ESE breeze up Pamlico River. Made Little Washington at 1400, hungry. Tied up at city dock and went into town for lunch of fish and crab cakes. Full house and quite noisy. We walked north to find engine oil and returned to Annie to cast off. Had dropped off appreciably and needed to motor 1/3 of the return. Wind picked up again from SSE 10-12 kts. Made the creek entrance at twilight and anchored in the creek past Potters Marine for the night.

A great place to be

Across from our anchorage

Daily total 39 NMiles, 45 SMiles
