Nags Head Oct. 2020

Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 Pandemic, we hosted another successful Fall trip to the Outer Banks. We all agreed to precautions to avoid getting sick, including shopping locally, and bringing food from home for the first few days. The one restaurant where we ate on premises was the OBX Fishing Pier - the staff wore masks and it was open air, otherwise we ordered take-out.

Three distant hurricanes either brought wind, or killed the wind. Fortunately they mostly brought wind. Our group had 11 days of sailing in the first two weeks. Peggy & I extended our stay as Tropical Storm Zeta brought exceptional conditions with three days of continuous on-shore wind.

We have additional trips planned for May & October 2021.

Re: Nags Head Oct. 2020

Thanks for sharing your photos! Looks like it was loads of fun with lots of TOW. So jealous. Anyhow, hope to see you at the Golden Isles where I will be sailing, winging and paddling about most of my times off. Merry Christmas!
