Chesapeake at night

Any of you locals sail at night? I'm sure PDQ has, so I'll direct the question at the rest of you.

I've logged 4 overnight distance races, but last night was my first singlehand night sail, just plodding home from Annapolis City Dock.

It's amazing, the personality change that the Chesapeake undergoes at night. It was quite different from racing with crew on a Friday night. No other competitors around, no recreational traffic. No one talking, the radio was mostly silent.

I wish I could have kept going.
