I anchored on the Corsica as well. I got hit with the gusty stuff Saturday afternoon just after rounding Love Point and beat into the wind for two hours until rounding the corner off of Eastern Neck. I tried to make it into Reed Creek, but after running aground and dark falling, I headed into the Corsica, which is barely marked. After the terns woke me up, I saw a skipjack-looking boat leave around 7:00. I left close to 8:00, got back to Love Point around 10:00 with great wind, donated my spinnaker pole to Neptune right at the yellow mark just as the wind died, then took until 4:00 to get to and back up the Severn, at which point the wind decided to blow again with some consistency.

Took some videos, here.

Oh, and I had some cold chicken, a carrot, and an Insanely Bad Elf Imperial Red Ale for dinner.
