Ocean City, Maryland to Block Island, Rhode Island

Arrived! Had a battle with a few thunderstorms and numerous biting flies; not sure which was worse! A relief that the heatwave is over and we are sailing to Fairhaven tomorrow to collect and install a new fridge compressor. We may then head over to Martha's Vineyard......

Ocean City, Maryland to Block Island, Rhode Island

All's well aboard Parati, except it's very very hot and there are lots of stowaway flies aboard; Nichola is busily swatting them! Lovely sailing overnight and joined by large pod of leaping dolphins at dusk; the dogs eventually stopped barking! Winds very light so far today; but seas fairly smooth and thankfully just enough wind to sail. Looking forward to cooler temperatures tomorrow. Best wishes, Simon

Ocean City, Maryland to Block Island, Rhode Island

After a pleasant few days anchored off Ocean City in Maryland, the wind forcecast looks good (although very hot!) and we are leaving today for Block Island, Rhode Island. We may head straight foe Fairhaven/ New Bedford in Massachusetts to get a new compressor for our fridge; we replaced the freezer last year and now the fridge one has packed up - it has been working very hard recently! Although we had a lovely meal ashore in the Sunset Marina restaurant on our 21st wedding anniversary, it is somewhat of a relief to be leaving numerous enormous "sports fishing" boats festooned with "Trump 2020" flags and manned by crew sporting "White Lives Matter" t-shirts! All the best, Simon

Harbour Town, SC to Block Island, RI

After a few lovely days of R&R moored in Taylor Creek at Beaufort, NC, we lifted anchor and headed around the notorious Cape Hatteras early yesterday afternoon. We rounded the Cape early this morning with no problems and in almost totally flat water; however, as we have been motoring since leaving Beaufort will probably need to stop in Chesapeake Bay somewhere to refuel. Still very hot and humid....... and all four of us are looking forward to some cooler weather further north. All the best, Simon

Hilton Head to Block Island

Apart from a few thunderstorms and having to avoid an aircraft carrier ("US Navy Vessel No. 5") on "flight manoeuvers", we had a great sail yesterday ion fairly flat water. But with the wind forecast to be quite strong, although in the right direction i.e. with the Gulf Stream, around Cape Hatteras this weekend, we decided to stop at Beaufort, North Carolina for some R&R. We are now anchored in a lovely spot next to a nature reserve and right opposite this small pretty town. We plan to take the dingy ashore for some exploring this evening. We will probably head up to Norfolk, Virginia in a few days and then directly on to Block Island, Rhode Island by next weekend; wind permitting.

Hilton Head to Block Island

All good aboard Parati. Left a lovely anchorage in the May River (thought we would never leave!) yesterday morning and successfully negotiated (Nichola was helming and didn't look up!) our first 65 foot fixed bridge on the intra Coastal Waterway. Mostly motoring in light winds overnight, punctuated by the occasional squall/ thunderstorm; all when Nichola was on watch! Looking fairly breezy off Cape Hatteras on Friday, so we will probably call into Beaufort, North Carolina for a a couple of days to wait for better weather to round the notorious headland.
