One Design Regatta in Oriental, NC

On Saturday, I was looking for something to do.  My wife went to a bridal shower in Benson, NC and I am home alone with my two dogs (Ziva and Harley).  It wasn’t a nice a day to go sailing, beside my dogs doesn’t like the sail boat.  The wind was from the SSW at 15-20 knots, which would mean not enough water in Whittaker Creek to take the boat out.  The maximum wind for Oriental on Saturday was 26 knots.  Back in 2007, I moved the boat down to Oriental, because Broad Creek in Washington, NC had the some issues.  The past hurricane seasons took it toll on the  Neuse River and southern Pamlico Sound.  The last reason for not going sailing, because the river was to busy the One Design Regatta.  The starting line for the regatta was at the entrance for Whittaker Creek.

Me the dogs went to Oriental to watch the regatta.  I use my Nikon D7100 with a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5/6 G ED VR lens to capture some pictures.  

You can see have windy it was for the small sailboats.  There were several the capsize.
