"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

The Fearsome Capes

>> Saturday, May 11, 2013

            Cape Lookout is the most challenging place we’ve sailed near so far this journey. The 9-12 foot swells threatening to swallow us up, the wind with its constant shifts both in direction and in speed, and the rain! The rain is constant. There’s no point in wearing anything but foulies up on deck because it will just get soaked anyway. We aren’t in the tropics anymore, where pouring rain was a welcome chance to take a shower. Now that we’re further north, it’s not about wearing clothes that will dry quickly like it was in the Caribbean.  It is just about not getting wet. If we get soaked here, our clothes don’t dry quickly. Despite that, this is still awesome. The high seas are exciting, and the winds constantly challenge us by tearing the seams in our sails. The overall experience is awe-inspiring.
