FALL 2008 - Sailnet Rendezvous Chesapeake!
 
Hello friends,

I was wondering if there would be any interest in a Fall raft up - Late September? October?

It's a beautiful time to be out on the bay.... Sept 20 is a raft-up for my local club....so that would be out for me. but....

...I could make something work on most other weekends in Oct, Sept...

I would propose a more "southerly" destination - St Michael's for instance - to include some of the folks that couldn't make our last feast! Solomons could also be a great idea...!?

Any other suggestions? Times? Locations? Interest?

All the best,
craig

Craig,

Donna and I would be up for something in the fall. St Michaels is great. Herrington Harbor or West/ Rhode River would also be a great central place for those coming from north or south. Herrington wouldnt reaquire the trek up Eastern bay St Micheals would. Solomons would be stretch for us as it is 70 miles or so, not as much daylight as summer and would be hard for anyone from the Patapsco / Rock Hall northward to make in a weekend trip.

I will help organize it with someone if people are willing to come. We had a great time at our club in June. Of course we will only come if you bring the "tunes" again.

I'll see what I can do, dates and destination depending.

There's a little known 'happening' that occurs on the first weekend following a full moon after the memorial weekend. By a local music group, called the Crab Alley Boys that plays in Shaw Bay... We found this by accident... Thoughts for a raft up??

Wow.... do we have to wear all black? Does it start at midnight?

What if we don't know the secret handshake? Can we still come? My tall eurotrash elevator boots are in for a repair, does that matter??? :eek:

...kidding...:D

What kind of music? Is there a place to meet ashore and BBQ / hang out? Or would it be an "anchoring" type of event?

Thanks for the idea!

I'm booked through September 20th (also my birthday as well as the same raftup you speak about).
MMR and I will try and make it to whatever else comes around and if she can't I'll join you on your boat, or you and I can go on mine.

On the other hand, the raftup on Sep 20th is looking like Eagle Cove behind Gibson's Island, no reason the sailnet folks can't anchor there also and we can dinghy over :)

I might make it.

If South(ish) on the Bay is the choice and folks are interested, I could lead an overnight down on Friday for those who would like to play but haven't sailed through the night before. VHF "buddy-channel" and prospect of support if someone has a problem.

No commercial interest, just lots of miles under the keel and love sailing at night.

While I'd love to do an overnight, wouldn't that entail another one on the way back?

JohnRPollard 08-25-2008 02:33 PM

We'd potentially be interested if the rendezvous were in the upper-mid-Bay area.

As for St. Michael's, the Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival is the first weekend in October at CBMM. More than likely we'll head over for that event.
