NSA plans to head to West Bay for our Fall Cruise again this year. West Bay can be iffy for anchoring if the wind is not right, so we'll be flexible once again this year. The beach on the southern shore of Pamlico Sound is very nice and the anchorage beautiful, unless the wind is out of the north, which makes it too rough. So, we'll hope for a South wind and moderate temps. We will gather on the beach, and if conditions are right we'll build a bonfire.
We normally anchor near 35°01.869'N 076°20.082'W. That is on the outside, or soundside, of West Bay. We typically anchor outside because of easier access to the beach.
In the event of North winds, we'll communicate an alternative destination, possibly Cape Lookout. Make sure you're subscribed to the Fall Cruise Forum.
Halloween falls on Sunday this year and our destination is New Bern, which has one of the best Ghost Walks in the area, presented by the New Bern Historical Society. Our tentative destination is the Galley Stores & Marina located on the Neuse River at the foot of Pollack Street. The Galley Stores & Marina has been the site of previous NSA Halloween cruises. The marina provisioning store offers gourmet foods and specialty wines and craft beers, and overlooking the marina is the fabulous Persimmons Restaurant.
We'll plan a social on the marina lawn on Saturday, after which members can meet up for dinner and/or the Ghost Walk.
Stay tuned for more details.
