2014 Sailnet Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous...

Thus far there have been no concrete plans for a 2014 Chesapeake Bay Sailnet Rendezvous. Sure would like to put that on my calendar, and while it's difficult to believe, summer is just not that far away.

If Dave (Chef To Sail) doesn't host it again at Maryland Yacht Club, I was thinking about the newly created island that has recently become a popular party spot in the bay's upper reaches near the southern end of the Havre de Grace channel at the old Fishing Battery Light. Dredging spoils from a couple years ago were deposited around the old island, which was a couple acres at best, creating a new island that is 20 to 30 acres. The water is relatively deep close to shore, and the island would make a great place for a rendezvous if Dave decides to let someone else take the reigns this summer.

Unfortunately, the marina where I'm at has no transient slips, or I would propose this to the marina owners and I'm confident they would go for it.

Just thought I would toss this option into the hat to see what you folks thought.

Gary

That new location would be good for those of us to the north that don't have a nearby rendezvous.

Regards,
Brad

re: 2014 Sailnet Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous...

We pulled up to that island **)I think?) late this past season. All sorts of signage regarding non trespass and protected grounds. Unless i'm mistaken!?!? Just down and out from Sand Island? Gettin' past Carpenter's Point is a doozy, then behind the Flats..oh my! Short water thereabouts

Close enuff for me tashow up, too. Set a date//time .. SeemsI miss allathe meet-ups as most are beyond my (current) range. Gonna rectify that soon!
Best,
Paul

I went through that channel for the first time last August. I did not realize that the island was "new." It sure was popular - dozens and dozens of boats anchored around there.

re: 2014 Sailnet Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous...

The island does not appear to be connected to land and for this to be a rendezvous truly accessible to all Sailnet members on the Chesapeake it needs to be car accessible and not just an anchoring/rafting event, especially if it is to be in the northern bay.
DRFerron and T37Chef like this.

I'm sure that those landlubbers can hitch a ride to the island. I would be more than willing to transport up to 6 passengers on my boat if the need arises.

That sounds like it could get complicated.

I believe you are referring to Hart/Miller Island which has been restored and enlarged using dredging material and is now a park. Chuck

re: 2014 Sailnet Chesapeake Bay Rendezvous...

I believe we're talking about two different islands. The one that Gary originally mentioned is new within the last year or two and located near Havre de Grace. Not Harte-Miller which is farther south.
