Re: Transiting to the Chesapeake

Tom,

Sometimes. We keep it kind of loose and create an itinerary as well as a " furthest point" that we may get to. We don't lock in to l the ports as weather and our feelings is may change once we are underway. We have a couple of places we usually want o o r a couple of des so it's a real vacation.

We have found that not everyone s like us ( anyone) and to try and fit and have all do he same is too difficult, like heading cats, and can cause hurt feelings. For example Donna and I are AM people and like to weigh anchor and gt to our next destination/ anchorage early so we can settle in and explore/ reconointering the town. Not everyone likes to do this. One of our friends likes o putter sound, drink offer and leave 11. So we eave it casual and meet up with them later. When doing the Delaware of Jersey Coast of ourse you have a distance o accomplish and make so we kind of ang together with 5 miles or so of each other.

We also know its important for other couples to have time alonenor want to go to different places so so times on the Sound we break apart...stay in touch and meet up again a few days later. Main thing is to be flexible. We usually meet some of the SN from the LI Sound group when we are up there too.

This has worked out for us in the past and we love sailing ith others this way and hanging out. Main thing is to be honest with each others and not have agendas, but be willing to go off on your own too.

Dave
