Re: 2014 Sailing Season

We’ll be hunkering down at our marina on the 4th where we should have a reasonably good view of the Baltimore inner harbor fireworks. Saturday we may head out for an overnight. It would be nice to make it a three day cruising weekend, but I don’t want to give up our view of one fireworks display just to go jockey for position in an anchorage to watch another. As long as the weather on the 4th is anything but a washout and/or gale force winds, I bet the number of crazies, drunks, and idiots out there will be off the charts due to it being on a Friday.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

We are probably headed to Still Pond or Worton Creek this weekend to sail and swim. Weather forecast looks good though the winds are no more than 10-12.

Chester maybe in the cards if the winds turn a little

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I have to work - just like every other holiday. But, hopefully, by tomorrow afternoon, all of the painting job will be done, the following day I'll put the sails on, and next weekend, I'll be sailing - SOMEWHERE! ANYWHERE!

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

En route to Bohemia Bay. No wind, but with a nice push from the current I'm making good time barely above idle speed on the motor.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

After replacing our washdown pump this morning we high tailed it to Worton We are anchored in the outside at Worton. No wind, thank god the temp is in the 90s. We had a great NYStrip dinner with grilled garlic shrimp and are watching the beautiful sunset. Our favorite hawks nest is still on the shore and they have been circling for a few hours.

This part of the Bay is so very nice and unspoiled.

Very little wind today. But still a nice day.

I sailed past Worton today around 1:30. I tried to hail you on Ch16 briefly, but no response.

Sorry I missed you

We were swimming/ floating about that time, enjoying the cool clean water.

Have fun this week. Forecast looks steamy at best.
