Atlantic Beach, NC trip and regatta

Last weekend our sailing club hosted a Flying Scot Regatta with crews from 5 states. I crewed on Bill’s sailboat. We didn’t place nor did we finish last. I feel we did well for our experience level. Two days of multiple races wore me out.

Monday Carol and I packed and headed to Atlantic Beach to stay with in-laws at my sister’s condo overlooking the ocean. We had overcast skies, rain, and sunshine. We also had rough surf, gentle swells, hot and steamy, and cool weather on the 5 days we spent there. I regretted not having my sea kayak with me. Next time for sure. The shelling was decent, though not exceptional, and body surfing variable ranging from fun, rough, and too gentle.

You have been around long enough to not omit your kayak when there is water everywhere.

Nice beach pics!


Yes, I regretted that, but was tired and rushed on Monday as well as not being encouraged by Connie and John when asked about it. Next time will be different.
