Diva Di's Cruising Adventures

Weather and Plans

18 May 2012
Quick post re: weather and plans –

It is blowing hard out of the N and forecast to be NNE for a few days, moderating to 15 mph tomorrow (Sat). We will hold here another day. Researching the Great Dismal Swamp route via Elizabeth City, I see very recent reports of 5-5.5 feet water depths and many encounters with submerged logs. I am not keen on damage to the rudder and dread the thought of seeing less than 6 feet in depth dozens of times, so we will skip that route and go through Coinjock.

Having said that, so far it doesn’t look like there is anything at all interesting between Oriental and the Chesapeake, nor is there a good selection of anchorages spaced out for two good runs. It looks like we might have to run 58 miles the next day we travel, followed by about 25 miles. I invite others to correct me with your knowledge and experiences.
