Dan's leading a Navy sail to Newport, RI, leaving Annapolis Thursday. They're one crew short so I'm going along!

T37Chef, I'll be anchoring out on the St. Mary's river on thursday night if you're still around by then. Plan to do a lot of sailing, and catch the fireworks and a raft-up with the folks from Fishing Bay Yacht Club. Most are heading up to the college on Friday morning.+

Edit: Anyone else in the area is welcome to join.

Hey All!

Just in from a great sail up the bay back from St. Michaels... (took the long way... didn't go through Kent Narrows...)

It was a pain getting out to the bay....but once we rounded Bloody point.. we took off.. Steady 10-17 out of the North West... and we flew up to the bridge.

We practiced leaving the helm at "neutral" and tuned the sails to keep her on course. It was awesome.. We touched the wheel less than 5 times in an hour!

Didn't start the Iron Genny until we were about 100m from our marina..... Nice tacking session up the channel into the Magothy....

Chuck,
I hope I didn't miss you... I had switched to 16 with all the Navy boats in the area....

All,
Post here if you want to meet up Thursday or Friday... your boat...my boat...both boats... whatever...

I leave for Poland *again* on Sunday.

HAVE FUN!

Hey Shawn,....where did you finally stay in Solomons,,,one of my favorite places. How are the kids liking the trip?

Craig and those beauty white sails...we'd be no match racing you (sic). We have a slug. You know we sail a tugboat

With a new wind instrument and newly wired mast ( old wiring was original and beleive it or not it was lampcord...what were they thinking...so strange considering the other way they looked at added equipment when they built C&C's). My wife and I installed new Garhauer davits like Chefs and bought a new Walker Bay 9 ft airfloor with a 4 hp Tahatsu with and external and internal tank. We surely love our new davit system. The 6:1 purchase makes it a breeze. Chef you must look at how we figured out to secure the dingy to keep it from moving or making a noise. When Donna and I installed them there was a lot of 4 letter words though as getting the backing plates on was a two hour pain in the ass. She really likes the new dinghy ride though as it planes so easily ( and not just because of my fat bottom in the rear.

We are heading for New York City and the Statue of Liberty starting the 4th of July. We are leaving early in the AM on the 4th and that night we will be anchored behind Reeedy Island on the Delaware River. The next day the long motor to Cape May. Then Atlantic City where I worked for 18 years, Manesquan Inlet, then Liberty landing Marina at the Statue of Liberty
Then we turn around and reverse course spending 3 days in Atlantic City and Ocean City , NJ and 3 days in Cape May. It will be Donnas first real ocean experience except for a small run last year from Cape May to Atlantic City, so I want to build her up to a bigger run by doing 40-50 mile legs. Training for her for bigger ocean trips like next year possibly Cape May to Block Island straight through. First she has to see how easy the Atlantic is without those damn powerboatwakes and shoals,

Hope everyone has a great fourth. Our club follows the fireworks around the bay from the third,,,right acoss from us on Rock Creek to the Fourth at Ft Mchenry or Rock Hall to the Fifth on the Chester .

Dave

ZZ,

Sorry we missed you. We left Horseshoe Bend at dawn on Thursday, 5:30 AM to be exact . The Potomac can get pretty squirrelly with the right wind, current, and tides uh!!!!! We ended up staying an extra day in St Mary's city to explore the town so we missed Tangier but made it to St. Michaels with a great sail up the bay and Eastern Bay...97 miles or something?

Maybe next time

The first night we anchored in Mill Creek, the next morning we opted to take a slip at Spring Cove Marina. Let me say that if one is ever looking for a great place to stay in Solomons I couldn't say enough good things about Spring Cove!!!!! (Thanks SailorMitch for the tip!)

How are the kids liking the trip?
They are loving it! and so are we! Real troopers, after the first two days we all really fell in the groove and are sad to be home but cant wait for the next trip. Weather wise our most challenging moments were in the Potomac, blowing 20+ with step short waves and confused seas...felt a bit like I was in a washing machine. Life jackets & harnesses for all! Once we rounded Point Lookout and headed North the ride was much more pleasant for the kids (and us)

Chef you must look at how we figured out to secure the dingy to keep it from moving or making a noise.
I'll have to stop by when you return, I experimented with some different things on this trip, still haven't found the perfect solution yet.

When Donna and I installed them there was a lot of 4 letter words though as getting the backing plates on was a two hour pain in the ass.
I told you it would be, I even made up some new words when installing mine LOL

Dave...and Fairwinds & Following seas on you trip to NYC

Talking Chesapeake 4th of July

Hello all. I’m here to share news about my weekend sailing on the Chesapeake. Through serendipity I have been lucky enough to hook up with a group of fantastic sailing enthusiasts based out of Deale, MD. We took off out of Selby Bay Friday afternoon and headed for Annapolis for the fire work show. We hit a Thunderstorm en-route. While no one would really describe a situation like that enjoyable, we made it through just fine and I was happy to get an experience like that under my belt. After the fire works there was no wind so we had to motor to the anchorage where we’d spend the night. Again, I was happy to be on the water at night, learning how to read the charts and markers. Even though it was raining the next morning I found my location to be just perfect. Just me alone in the cockpit (I always seem to be the first to wake), enjoying the scenery and watching the birds. The skies cleared, we swam, we relaxed, we enjoyed interesting conversations, and great food. During our night swim we were lucky to have bioluminescent plankton create a little magic show for us. Anchors up after breakfast, and then we headed south toward Deale. Very light wind and had to motor about half way. Finally a little breeze allowed us a nice leisurely sail back. The weekend was pure remedy for me. I shared it with good friends and new friends. I didn’t have to step foot on land for 2 ˝ days, and I even misplaced the flip flops! So hard to step foot on land and have to wear shoes again! I’m thrilled to be finally taking those steps toward my dream………..Now when to sell the house, buy the boat, anchors up………..What a vicious little bug bite
I posted this in two forums where I lurk. I’d just like to share.
Cheers, Judy
