Jane and I have a lot of exciting things going on right now. We are adding several new locations to our sailing school! We will still keep our office in “Lil” Washington, NC but we are moving our main office to New Bern, NC at the New Bern Grand Marina.
We moved the 27′ Hunter from Washington to New Bern last weekend during a great weather window. We spent the night anchored out in Durham Creek on the Pamlico River Friday night after a late start. New Years Eve was spent in Grace Harbor at River Dunes Marina, just outside of Oriental. If you get the chance that is a great place to hole up for a day or so! They have a courtesy car that we used to go into Oriental, where we took in the celebrations and “ran” with the dragon. What a great way to bring in 2012, the Year of the Dragon! Sunday the 1st started out flat but by mid day we had gusts in the 25 to 30 knot range but we still managed to sail under the Hwy 17 bridge on the Neuse River. All in all it was a great trip and we are very excited about the move to New Bern.
We will also be offering classes out of Morehead City, but more about that in the near future!
