FL to CT Day 21
Belhaven, NC to Coinjock, NC
We left Dowry Creek Marina before sunrise this morning at 0630... we had a longer day planned with our destination being Coinjock, NC.
We were again in a pack of boats all heading north and most likely to the same place we are heading... the marina will be packed full and they will pack us in like books on a shelf... no space at all between each boat... makes it tough getting out in the morning... we will be the last to arrive out of this pack of 20 so hopefully we will have some space either in front or behind us.
We arrived to Coinjock Marina our destination for the day at approximately 1645... we were securely docked with power at 1700... our position for the night N36°20.917', W075°56.934’
. We traveled today for 10.5 hours covering 72.5 nautical miles averaging 6.9 knots.

FL to CT Day 20
Morehead City, NC to Belhaven, NC
We pulled the anchor at 0645 and were underway at 0700 bound today Belhaven. NC.
A lot of cruising boat traffic today that kept the VHF humming to the point that it became as annoyance... people hailing to negotiate passing one another... it got old real fast.
After the first 15 minutes we had a great boost in speed from the flood tide... carried all the way to the Neuse River... Even after that we had a favorable current just not one pushing us over 8 knots.
We arrived to Dowry Creek Marina our destination for the day at approximately 1515... we were securely docked with power at 1530... our position for the night N35°31.984', W076°32.122’
. We traveled today for 8.5 hours covering 61.9 nautical miles averaging 7.3 knots.
