Kayak Currituck: Downwind to Corolla

Report from SandyBottom at 4pm Saturday:  

Paddled / sailed / surfed downwind on a broad reach to Corolla. 

Winds 20-25 mph with gusts of 30 mph.  Maximum speed was 8.3 mph.  Very exciting day!  

The new sail works great.  Yesterday I sailed upwind at 1-2 mph without paddling.

Here is a cellphone-photo of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla.

Looking forward to a pizza / italian dinner at a restaraunt in Corolla. 

It's getting colder here. 

Tomorrow's paddle to the WNW may be into a strong headwind.

SPOT track Saturday:  southward on a broad reach downwind to Corolla
