This may not a good comparison, but in September it took us just under 3 hours from Galesville to Deep Creek on the Magothy. We had 25+ knot SE winds and it was a romp! It was about an hour to Thomas Point Light, that trip "normally" takes 90-120 minutes. At one point the GPS said 8.3 knots for a top speed and we had consistent 6-7.5 knots, not a normal trip. Our return trip had NE winds and we went from Baltimore to Mill Creek 4.5 hrs and Mill Creek to Rhodes River in 1 3/4 hours, again not normal...

It may not be as far off as you think. Breezes are pretty consistent between 12-20 kts lately.

A NW breeze would make the leg to TPL a beam reach/close reach, then close hauled as you swing around...probably some tacking to work your way north after the lighthouse.

Having never sailed to Deep Creek yet, I've plotted a trip from the Rhode River to Deep Creek at (very) roughly 20 miles. Do you agree?

A 15kt breeze would be a fun run home on the kite, no?

If I recall we figured it was 21 miles from Galesville to Deep Creek, so yes, your calculations seem right to me. And that fun run home with kite might depend on the size of the kite ... I once saw a chute explode on a boat in front of me (not my boat) with about 35 knots, it was an amazing sight, little pieces of nylon ribbon all over the water, ours came down.

I went by Mike's again today for a lunch with the wife. On my first visit we had crabs and they were great, but today we had sandwiches and they were OK at best. My vote wold be for Deep creek on the Magothy. Their Sunday Brunch is pretty good...

Joe-

Are you driving for this, or sailing? At an average of 6 kts, you're looking at 7 or 8 hours of round trip travel. Are you overnighting up there, or just driving?

Dec 5 - I'll sail up. Janet is out of town on business through that weekend so I'll be singlehanding. Sail up Saturday and back on Sunday afternoon, all weather permitting of course.

If anyone wants to help sail up and/or back drop me a line. I have heat. Please send sailing resume and a phone number. I'm more than a bit picky about my boat so please bear that in mind.

I will drive, I used all my high speed sailing to the Magothy in September :-). If anyone needs address/directions I can give that. It is pretty simple from Rt 50.
