Our Current Location:
Pausing in New Bern, NC

The best time to sail south is at the end of a wonderful Long Island summer.  SoundWave left the Port Washington, NY mooring season in September 2020 and headed to NC.  During our month long trip south we surprised ourselves by buying not one, but two, condos overlooking the picturesque water of Fairfield Harbour, New Bern,  NC.  COVID online shopping is to blame :). We are now short term rental hosts and are happy to be welcoming guests to this super cool area.  We are loving New Bern and Fairfield Harbour.  There is just so much to do here.  For a sailor, looking out of your living room at your boat in the harbor below feels like a dream.  Its a golden location to pause!

Where can we hole up safely for this crazy Covid 2020 summer and be out of the Florida hurricane season?  The beautiful, an easily accessible town of Port Washington, NY.  We stayed to ourselves the whole summer.
