Re: Cape Hatteras
- You are heading down the best time of year. April is their
windiest month. If you are there for at least a week it should be a
good trip. Wind wise you should see a range from 10 to 30 knts so
bring all your stuff to cover all the bases. The water in the sound
is very mellow. Even in winds up to 25-30 knts it doesn't get bigger
than a foot or 2. The water temp in the sound is totally dependent on
the weather. If it is a warm week ie wind out of the south it's
conceivable that you could be in a shorty maybe even just a swim
suit. If it's cold ie wind out of the north you will definitely be
most comfortable in a steamer. The Ocean will probably require a full
suit no matter what ( around 50-60 degrees) and the surf can be
mellow to macking.
As far as accomodations go renting a house is by far the best deal
if you have enough people to share the cost. You can rent a place in
any town on the cape but I suggest you get one in Avon. It's central
and all the shops are there where you can get plenty of advice on
where to kite. Here's a good site for rentals.
Have a great trip,
