News and Announcements

Valor is for Sale -- My Cape Dory 25 Valor is for sale to make room for a bigger boat that I could take long-distance cruising. She's been a fine day-sailor and I've taken a number of longer trips on her as well, but she's not the ticket for weeks or months-long trips, which I hope to take once I retire. So, anybody looking for a good sailable CD25? Asking price $3,500. Details here. Email me at

For the Traditionalists Out There -- Delbert McClinton will be playing at the Carteret Community Theatre the evening of May 30th, 2015. Details here.

57th Annual Big Rock Tournament -- will be held June 5th through 13th. Click here for details.

Rollinson Channel a Channel No More? -- The historic Rollinson Channel that connected Hatteras Village with Hatteras Inlet has shoaled to the point that the Coast Guard is removing markers. Boaters should use Barney Slough and South Ferry Slough. According to Outer Banks Voice, markers 9 through 13 will be removed. That sounds permanent.

Ocrafolk 2015 -- The Annual Ocrafolk Festival will be held the weekend of June 5th through 7th. This is one of the premiere events in the region, so sail, drive, bike or walk to Ocracoke and be a part of it. Dropping the hook in Silver Lake puts you right in the middle of all the activities, but expect the anchorage to be crowded. Check out the website for more information.

Harborfest for HeartWorks 2015 -- This is a fundraiser for Pamlico County non-profit Heartworks that will be held at River Dunes the weekend of September 18th through 20th. Looks like Saturday general admission will be free, special events on Friday and Saturday nights will require a ticket, but if you're a big spending sailor who would like to help out a local charity, a full-bore, sail-in, no-holds-barred admission to River Dunes Club for the whole festival is available for $500 a boat. More info to come. Check out the Heartworks website for more information.

Oregon Inlet Reopened with Restrictions -- As of April 2nd, 2015, the Coast Guard has reopened the inlet to boats of no more than 5 feet of draft. This means most of the charter fleet is back in business. Story at The Outer Banks Voice.
