On water by 9am for solid 12m fun day playing in the northern slicks at Linwood Beach/Hoyles Marina. Launch is little tight but easy to figure out. NNE winds 18-22. Sun and 55-60 degrees. Almost 6 hrs kiting with the highlight of cruising off 'Butter Pointe' where a long south land jetty makes a natural break wall. Another 100 mile drive - 1.5 hr. Drive. Well worth it in shallow Hatteras like kiting right in our back yard. Looking forward to more here in future.
