The third annual OcraFolk School is almost upon us. The dates are October 25 - 30, the last week of the month. There are still a couple of spaces available in the Ocracoke Sampler class...an opportunity to immerse yourself in a bit of island history, sail aboard the schooner Windfall (and participate in old-time seafaring traditions), kayak on Pamlico Sound (and maybe even gather enough clams for a meal), and walk across the island from ocean to sound, leaning about the unique ecology of this very special barrier island.

You can read more about the class here:


Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a reprint of an article Philip wrote about sailing aboard the historic two-masted schooner, Mary E. It was originally published in the Washington Post in 1976. You can read it here:

    Hi Philip!
    I am very sad, because I cant write you again. If i try write i get this message: Hi. This is the qmail-send program at freemail.hu.
    I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
    This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

    I dont understand, because once we could write each other. What may the problem be? It will be better if you would write german.

    Best of Love,
