Re: 2013 Sailing Season

The weatherman is surely doing drugs. The forecast was backwards for the weekend.

We sailed over to the Corsica with two other boats in the club and saw only 7-12 till we hit the Chester River. From their we saw a steady 18 with gusts to 25 all the way up to the Corsica.

After passing the old Russian embassy summer house we tucked into a nice cove right before Wash Point which has a great bluff of 40ft which offered good protection from the gusty east winds. The wind died and we raft the three boast, a Bavaria 36, a Hunter 38 and our 35. We used our ROCNA as the anchor as both other Captains felt more confident with it.

Had a nice cocktail party/ hors devours and then had dinner on board the Hunter and watched the sunset. Great quiet peaceful spot.

Wind picked up again at 7 AM. Hung out with the Baviaria ( Hunter left at 10.) and we took off.

On our way back down the Chester we saw Clay/ Leslie ( Tango) headed at us and we passed waving. Looking good

We sailed back across the Bay in lightening wind till we finally motor sailed the last 10 miles.

Corsica is a beautiful place to go which is quiet and peaceful.
