Re: 2014 Sailnet Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous...

Jeff, the 2014 Sailnet Rendezvous takes place at Owens Marina, Perryville, MD 12 noon till you can't take any more fun and excitement. The marina owners have graciously allowed me to use their pool, pool patio, gas grill and picnic tables, beach chairs, and other facilities. If you come by boat, I need to know if you need a slip prior to June 1st. After June 1st, figure on tying up at the city dock, which is less than 1/4-mile downriver of the marina. You can, however, anchor out in the waters adjacent to Garrett Island, which is directly across from the marine and situated in the middle of the Susquehanna river's mouth.

In the event the weather turns nasty, I have made arrangements with the Perryville American Legion, which is a really nice facility just four blocks from Owens Marina. The only restriction is we cannot take our own booze or food to the Legion. They have a great menu there, and obviously, lots of booze, but you will have to pay for it. No freebees. Both the food and booze are really inexpensive.

I'll be supplying musical entertainment at either location, depending upon the weather. I'll also try to make up a batch of my homemade Kahlua as well. I made a half-dozen bottles the last time, and actually took a couple home. I'll also provide some Green coconut Margarettas for those whom may wish to try them. The remainder of the food and drinks will be pot luck.

For those needing a slip at Owens Marina, the overnight fee will be $25, which is dirt cheap in this part of the world. If you stay at the city dock, there is no charge, lots of depth and large slips. You can only stay a single night there. But if you decide to go sailing, and come back that afternoon, you could spend a second night.

There's only a couple restaurants in Perryville, but directly across the river in Havre de Grace, the town is loaded with them. Some are on the water and have their own piers for those who arrive in boats, and there is a city owned pier there as well, but I'm not sure about the restrictions at this point. Something I have to check out.

For anyone that has concerns about the Havre de Grace channel, it's very deep, averaging about 18 feet, 150 yards wide, but if you stray outside the channel, you WILL run aground - just like any other channel. It only has a single turn at Fishing Battery Island and the remainder is straight and deep.

If your mast height exceeds 50 feet, you cannot clear the Amtrak Railroad Bridge. However, there is a very large, relatively protected basis where you can drop the hook just downriver of the bridge and it's a short dinghy ride to the marina. The marina has a launch ramp, and a floating dock where the dinghies can be moored.

Hope this clears things up,

Gary

Re: 2014 Sailnet Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous...

I keep by boat in Havre De Grace. The NEW Island is adjacent to Sandy Island just South Of HDG. You can walk on Island but must stay close to waters edge till
all the sea grass etc takes hold. Very deep water up to Island on the West Side. Otherwise don't try. Channel is well marked coming up the Bay from Gr 1 near Turkey Point. I am new to Sail Net and would like to meet fellow sailors. I am planning a trip down ICW in Nov and then to Bahamas or maybe the Keys. I retire in Oct !!!!!!!

Re: 2014 Sailnet Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous...

The time is drawing near, and with any kind of luck I'll have my boat in the water a week prior to the rendezvous so it can be used as a floating hotel for those who need overnight accommodations.

Cheers,

Gary

Just a couple more weeks left before the festivities begin. Still don't have a firm number for those who wish to attend, but if you are intending on coming and have not posted the confirmation, please do so by April 1st so I can reserve a slip for your boat.

Reconfirming to reserve a slip.
I should be in Perryville June 14 late morning or early afternoon after departing Chesapeake City after sunrise.

As I approach do I call the marina on ch 9?
