Take and tent and ferry to the lighthouse at Cape Lookout. You can camp anywhere in the dunes - there is water and cold rinse showers, but you'll have to bring food and beer. There will be at least 5 of us sailing the ocean there on Saturday (not camping).

Well you pretty much have to bite the bullet this time of year.  Average motel rooms are about $120.  Sharing a room is another option if you are so inclined.

Day trips are tough but also an option.  Sailing at Salvo vs Canadian Hole will save you some time.

I wish could find something for $120, that would be cheap from the prices I am seeing!  I'm coming from 6+ hours away, so no day tripping for me.  Oh well...

Looks like I'm going to Hatteras Friday through Sunday.  Anyone else going?

I was thinking about a quick trip Fri through Sunday, but where do people stay this time of year?  Too hot to camp, and hotels are really expensive this time of year.

Looks like Fri and Sat are pretty certain SW wind. The remnants of storm in the Gulf appear to be shunted to the north thanks to building Bermuda high pressure over the ocean.  Another 2 days of spectacular wind!

Bermuda high is staying anchored to our north all week, waning right now but strengthens on Fri-Sat.  Looking like more strong SW on those days. NWS mentions approaching remnants of tropical storm but I do not see that on the weather maps I'm looking at
, so stay tuned.  Good tide setup for Harkers sound side on Sat high tide at 10am low at 4:30, new moon so should run out fast though.

Well, we (Jeff, Jan, Eric, Sam, Vince and I) had a great two days in the Salvo/Avon area.  Winds generally in the 20-30 mph range.  I was on my 5.2 Sunday and pooped out as the wind built to 4.5 range.  On Monday, I was on my 4.5 the entire time, but the wind seemed to be more gusty than on Sunday, with an occasional slog.

While I don't have the stamina that the younger guys have, I did manage to cover 52 miles over the two days, hitting top speeds of 31.8 on Sun. and 31.2 on Mon.  Sam and I only windsurfed, while the others both kited and sailed.  Great weather, but muggy.

While I took the more conservative route, the other guys sailed from the Gull Island launch out to the "reef", looking for some waves, but it took some extended walking over shallows to get there (so they said).
