Re: What would you do? Caught off guard by storm on the Chesapeake

Well, having been in that exact location many, many times over the past half-century, you were just five minutes motoring time from a totally protected, safe anchorage at Goose Pond. I've rode out a lot of storms in there, just 3 to 5 feet of water, fairly high ground to the west, north and southwest to block the winds. Drop the hook, mix a green coconut margaretta, prop your feet up in the cabin and wait a few minutes for the storm to pass. By the time you finish the Margaretta, the sun will be back out and conditions just right for sailing again.

Cheers,

Gary
