This mornings bar crossing.
Ocean is 5 foot swells at large intervals. Less than 5 knots of SE wind so no sign of chop yet. ETA at Newport about 2 pm. Later.
9 am update: The ocean has become much happier today. We now have a 3-foot rolling swell with less than 3 knots for wind. A bit bouncy but MUCH better than yesterdays pounding.

|Cape Lookout. The anchorage on the south side near shore looked |
pretty good: flat seas with just a hint of swell and no wind. Still
probably best in northwest seas and winds.
