Current Location: Silver Lake anchorage, Ocracoke, NC
Miles Traveled: 85
Weather: Cloudy, breezy, some showers, low-60s
Highlights: Seas remained choppy, and winds variable, so continued our trip down the coast motor-sailing with jib only. Had a band of showers (with some lightning) pass over us around 2AM, and the tug finally passed us also, but quiet night otherwise, and we're averaging about 6 knots (running only 1 engine at a time). Seas finally calmed down as we rounded Cape Hatteras, but wind was on the nose, so we motored the last 4 hours into Ocracoke Inlet, up the channel, and dropped anchor in Silver Lake around 2:30 PM. Grabbed a quick dinner of leftover pasta casseroles, sent off an "Arrived Safely" message off via inReach (no Sprint cell phone service here) then napped for the rest of the day.
