We sailed North up into New Bern, NC from Beaufort, NC with our friends Ed and Rosa to escape Hurricane Matthew. It hit us around 3AM and held consistent 40-50 knot winds with gusts around 60. The gusts had us healed over to the point we were sliding down the bed. It was a bit nerve-racking for a while! No serious damage was sustained at the marina so after it had passed, we made a quick trip to the grocery store for provisions and were off within the week. From New Bern we sailed to Southport, GA.
