Re: 2014 Sailing Season

We had a couple great sails - for different reasons - the past few days.

Sunday saw ideal conditions for entertaining non-sailing friends on the boat and Monday was nothing short of a top-notch day for some spirited sailing.

I've got the larger "summer jib" on Cordelia now.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

We had a glorious sail on Monday over to Eagle Cove in the Magothy. Yesterday we were weathered in due to the heavy sea state, so we motored from Rock Hall Harbor over to Swan Creek and anchored for the day. Our make shift airconditioning was much needed last night, since the low temperature last night was 82.

I've got a little window in the conditions this morning, taking the boat up to Worton Creek to weather the storm. It's also a little closer to home so hopefully I can get the boat back home on Saturday. I'm running wing and wing up the bay right now, while my wife drives the car up to Worton.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

We should be in Worton Creek tomorrow evening. Perhaps we'll see you there.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Hey Shawn, when I was out Monday there were loads of Japanese Beetles flying around the upper bay - have you noticed any down your way?

Dont forget your flyswatters ( and replacements) for your Delaware River trip.

The misery of the greenhead fly ? NewsWorks

The Delaware River trip from the Canal to Cape May is a boring flyridden jouney this time of year until you get to the ocean breeze of Cape May. We usually arrive at Utches with at least over 100 kills each (Donna and I keep score).

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I made it from Rock Hall to Worton Creek in 3 hours this morning. It was some really nice sailing in very gentle conditions. Unfortunately, the actual winds were not as refreshing as the apparent winds when the boat was moving. I took a look at the temperatures and was shocked:


The top number (97.9°F) is the temperature in the cockpit cubby, where it's shaded, but the gunwale above it is bathed in sun, so the temp is somewhere between the true shaded temperature and the full sun temperature. The bottom numbers (101.7°F, 47%) are inside the cabin. So ducking into the cabin to get out of the sun was not much of an option.

With these conditions, and threat of thunderstorms in the afternoon, we decided to put into Worton Creek Marina and head home for the evening.

Tomorrow we'll head back down to Worton and probably move the boat to Bohemia for an afternoon daysail on July 4 (weather permitting) and the final trip home on Saturday. Let's hope the strong northwesterlies Friday and Saturday don't drain too much water out of the Bohemia.
