Pamlico Sound, NC

Pamlico Sound, the second largest ICW estuary after the Chesapeake Bay, is 65 miles south of Albemarle Sound (via the ICW). The afternoon sea breeze, combined with prevailing southwesterlies, can often produce winds in excess of 20 knots and a short, steep chop that can fairly be called “vicious.”
