Day 118- Hampton, VA

The weather looks promising for a departure to the Caribbean on 11/11/11.  We spent the day motoring south to Hampton, VA to be closer to our exit point to the Atlantic Ocean.  There was little to no wind and it was a very grey day.  The only excitement was when a big (over 100 ft) Navy hovercraft buzzed around us.

Hampton is packed with cruising boats.  Many are part of the Caribbean 1500 race/rally.  Others are participating in the Salty Dog Rally.  Most have been waiting since the beginning of the month for a good weather window and seems like everyone is planning to leave tomorrow.  There may be a traffic jam...
