Back to the Islands

These are probably not the islands you're looking for....  

I brought S/V Corsair back down to the barrier islands of the Outer Banks, NC for another winter away from the frigid conditions on the upper Chesapeake Bay.  Here are some videos from the trip south.

The most challenging leg of the trip was the 24 hour overnight sail from Herrington Harbour (18 miles south of Annapolis) to Portsmouth, VA.

I had to leave S/V Corsair at Tidewater Yacht Marina in Portsmouth for few days while I returned to DC for work and also to allow a nasty weather system to pass by.   

The next leg of the trip took me down the Virginia Cut of the ICW, across the Currituck Sound to Coinjock where I tied up at the famous Coinjock Marina.

Blessed with great weather, if not a slightly intermittent breeze, I finished the trip with a very enjoyable sail down the Albemarle and Roanoke Sounds to S/V Corsair's winter home at Manteo Waterfront Marina in Manteo, NC.

  1. Corsair: Somewhere you mentioned going into the brokerage business and wanting Cabo Rico business. . .
    I am in the southern Chesapeake and in the market for a CR38. Looking for a buyers broker. Could get a broker here in Tidewater to get me a boat, but like the idea of a broker with a passion for the Cabo Ric, which you seem to have. You interested? Email me at:
