Labor Day Weekend?

We're heading out Friday for the weekend, hoping the winds are good for a sail South, if not and its hot we'll probably head North...most likely Still Pond

Re: Labor Day Weekend?

We're hoping to do a mini-cruise over Labor Day weekend. The tentative plan is for me to single-hand from Essington to Bohemia River Friday, my wife drives down for cruising Sat-Sun (Sat night destination depends on wind and weather), then I single-hand back on Monday. My wife has to work Monday, so she'll drive from Bohemia Sunday night.

Saturday night destination will depend on weather and wind. That's why I asked about Still Pond. If weather is iffy, we'll just do daysails from Bohemia to stay within a one day trip of getting home, since I need to be back at work Tuesday.

Ulladh was originally going to buddy-boat with us, but unfortunately his boat has sustained some damage that makes him unable to join us.

Wish we could do a whole week in the Bay. Hopefully next season.

You should try to make it down to Baltimore for the Star Spangled "Sailabration" in a couple of weeks. Tall Ships, Blue Angels, and more... http://www.starspangled200.com/star-.../#.U_shnfldVrM

Enjoy the Upper Bay, Still Pond is doable for you I would think? Returning from our trip North to LIS we did Cape May to Worton Creek easily...and could have kept going to Rock Creek but I wanted to stretch out our vacation...

Cheers,
Shawn

I'll look for you. Sounds like I'll enter the canal an hour or so before you, but I'll be fighting the current for an hour or so. You may pass me at some point due to greater hull speed.
