Day 2 – September 7th 2015

GREAT BRIDGE, VA TO BUCK ISLAND, NC

After three false starts, we finally made it under the highway 158 bridge and motored all day with out further interruptions from the engine. We made it past Coinjock, NC to the North River where we anchored for the night. Not much to see on the Virginia cut portion of the ICW.  We had a few Mega Yachts pass us, which we later saw in Coinjock stopped for the night. But pretty much everything passed us.  We are however starting to really like life going by at 6.5 knots.

The biggest excitement of the day was going under the Pungo Ferry Bridge.  We have a 64′ mast with a 1′ antenna on top. The Pungo Ferry Bridge states 65′ clearance but our antenna scraped all the way through.

We stopped briefly in Coinjock but decided to go a little further to a secluded anchorage for the night.  It was worth the extra effort.
