Second Annual SailNet Mid-Chesapeake Rendezvous

In the tradition of last year's really big event, I thought it would be a good time to see if there was any interest in those of us from the Chesapeake rendezvousing again perhaps in mid-August. So here is my suggestion for how we do this. Answer the following questions...
  1. Are you interested in coming:
  2. If so by boat or by car?
  3. Would you prefer north or south of the Bay Bridge?
  4. What weekends are you available?
  5. Any suggestions for anchorages or otherwise?
Hopefully, we will have a good turn out yet again....

Jeff

1. Yep
2. Boat
3. North would be cool
4. Most, probably. No travel plans at this time.
5. Bohemia River is purty. Sassafras might be good. Magothy is always do-able. Then again, St. Mike's has plenty of room, good bars, and is closer to those from more southerly areas. (Yes, I know that St. Mike's is SOUTH of the bridge.) Then again, the Rhode River is nice, too. Hell, I'm easy to please. Just tell me where to show up and leave me room to anchor upwind of C2.

*I'm interested!
*Due to time constraints, we'll probably come by car if N of the bridge or by boat if S. No one's giving me any sympathy, either, that are time constraints are due to too busy getting ready to retire and go cruising beginning in Sept.
*Not available 8/8 or 8/29 or 9/5; available (so far) 8/15 and 8/22
*Painkiller's listed most of the good anchorages; consider Mill or Whitehall creeks, just off Whitehall Bay just about "at" the Bridge, as a way to make it easy for those either north or south?

  3. Would you prefer north or south of the Bay Bridge? No preference
  4. What weekends are you available? August 28th - 30th is NOT good for us, otherwise any weekend looks fine
  5. Any suggestions for anchorages or otherwise? Like them all, but the Rhode is a new favorite and seems to be pretty much in the middle
A few other questions:

Are kids welcome or is this an adult gathering only?
Who's wants to do a raft up? (We are)

We'll be southbound, back from Maine. We've loved our other gatherings in the Chesapeake. Put something up in a "new posting" when time is short for being there! 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

I'm interested in coming.
By boat
Probably North
Anything but August 15-16
How about the Chester River, perhaps Grays Inn Creek or Lankford Creek. Or, the Magothy offers plenty of space.

Would prefer South but happy to go North

I'm interested! I'll probably come by boat

Although I don't know exactly where all those places you guys mentioned are, in looking at a map, I'd prefer north of the bay bridge (coming from Urbanna, va)

Count us in. We are up in Mystic today haded for Block Island tomorrow for 2days then working our way back home slowly stopping in Essex, Port Jefferson, Atlantic HIghlands, Barneget Lighthouse, Atlantic City, Cape May then back in the Bohemia where we are meeting a few memebers of our club on our return evening. This trip surely has introduced my wife to true cruising and she has really taken to it. We are comparing restaurants by the quality of their lobster rolls. On our way from Northport bay to Westbrooke we motored by a lbsterman pulling up traps and asked him if he would seel any to us. He oblidged and we took 6 - 2 lbers on board and put them in a bucket of water. When we anchored that night we wrapped them in foil and put them on the Magma Grill. Quite an improtu feast of gluttony for 30 dollars.

Chester River is nice with Cackaway Island one of my favorite places. Anywhere is fine for us though. Whitehall Bay is good too. If we cant find a common spot to congregate we can used the MDYC as we did last year.

Let us know. We are in.

Dave and Donna
