SAILING - SNOWBIRDS
It's that time of year when those of us that are fortunate enough to travel south start their journey down the east coast of the U.S. to warmer climates. Although I haven't done the journey myself, I have been fascinated by the stories that my sailor friends have shared over the years. As they each have traveled to various ports, it's been great to learn a little about each area along the ICW. I have also enjoyed reading various blogs and sometimes feel like I have met the sailors as many have been willing to share their personal accounts with the world!
A few years ago, I learned about the ICW rally held each October! The ICW starts in Norfolk and ends in Miami. ICWally.com posts details and updates through out journey. I have included a link to their site outlining the 2016 ICW Rally events.
The ICW rally started October 17th this year. I have received reports of boats running aground in North Carolina at Browns Inlet and some other areas. Make sure you check in with Activecaptain.com

Here is a great video link for an introduction video to the ICW by Wally Moran.
