Hatteras conditions 1/28-29:
 Saturday wind E 5mph, temp 48, rain and more rain :( Good sea
shell hunting and beach driving day. Also saved a baby loggerhead
turtle from getting pecked to death from sea gulls and returned
it to the ocean.
 Sunday wind N 18mph (as per NWS, but I think it was more toward
20-25), temp 50, water temp 48, mixture of sun (ahhh) and clouds
(brrr). Used a 5.2 (maxed) on the 8'7". Ocean too far off-shore
(for winter) at the cove and the north beach was knee high and
mushy. Settled for the hole where I could find other sailors.
Sailed about 3hrs with Brad, Mark, and Jim (where were you Tom)
John Carcich was entertaining guests so he had a good excuse. Not
epic, but sailing when there is 4" of snow at home I'll take any
day.
 So that makes 3 weekends in January, not bad. Would have been 4
but had to work one of them. Hope February temps are as mild.
Hope I can get this much sailing time in July.
