Iím not a sailboater, but I do have a house in Oriental. When researching the place, I read that it is the second windiest place in the US after San Francisco. I canít vouch for the validity of the statement, but I can attest to the fact that the wind almost always seems to be blowing there. I think thatís what attracts all the blow boaters.
