Gladrags1 is on a distinguished road
[...and think we saw Mandolin ( Todd) going in Rock Creek or around Rock Creek.

Good seeing you Shaun. Was that you Todd?]

Yes, it was me on Mandolin. We had a fantastic sail on Saturday from Rock Creek to Eagle Cove on the Magothy. Sailed right into the cove before dropping sail. Then a very nice sail from Eagle Cove to the Bodkin and a drive back home on Monday. A very nice weekend spent rafting up with friends. Monday's rain held off until the boat was unloaded and the grass mowed. An extra bonus!

Chef2Sail (Dave): Is that the name of your boat? Do you sail out of White Rocks? Tod / Mandolin

Turned out to be a very good weekend, all things considered. Had a few things fall into the harbor; Leatherman, closed bottle of boat soap and a crew member. Got two of them back...lost the Leatherman. Who knew a bottle of boat soap floats? Fortunately, crew member could swim the few yards to the dock ladder. Lesson learned, don't fall (step) off the boat...but if you do, make sure you're still at the dock.

Things conspired to delay our departure on Saturday and we didn't shove off until 1:30 pm but had a great time tacking down the Bay (damn head winds) and into the Chester River where we were really made good time. Reached our anchorage in a small creek up the river around 6:30 pm and had a wonderful weekend with sailing friends.

Believe I heard Valinor on the VHS while motor sailing (wind not cooperating again) on Monday but couldn't get a response when I called him. Tried out my Bruce anchor for the first time (changed from a Danforth this Spring) and was very pleased.

Fair winds to all...MGM

Tod....

The name of our boat is Haleakula (Hawaiian for House of the Rising Sun) Also the name of the principal 13000 ft volcano making up Maui. We got married on the beach in front of Haleakula
