I Would Sail 5000 Miles, and I Would Sail 500 More!
After recovering from our day of fun on the ground of the ICW, we made a jump of about 200 miles around Cape Fear and into Beaufort, North Carolina. Since we lost so much time the day before getting stuck, we had a full day of motoring in the Inter-coastal ...
