We were at the show last Friday, but had to get home to deal with the teenage daughter so we weren't able to make the meet-up, hopefully we'll finally make it to the next SN gathering.

Eryka,

Today was a nasty, nasty day to be out on the water... glad you made it to Deltaville in relative comfort. Godspeed on you travels south, looking forward to your reports along the way.

I assume your waiting out the November 1 restriction. If so I highly recommend you backtrack a few to Onacock when this weather pattern breaks (it'll be 70-75 soon...), it's a great destination that we cant wait to get back to.

We were down on Friday but attended the Beneteau Owners event at the Marriott. We headed back down on Monday to help break down the Beneteau setup and move boats out and back north to the dealer. They certainly have it down to a science with plenty of hands available to help get you out of tight quarters. The two day ride back north was interesting as well. Day 1 saw us on one tack all the way to the C&D. Winds below 10kts dropping to 2-3 outside of Still Pond. Got to the northside mouth of the Sassafras and WNW winds cranked to 20kts with a peak gust at 32.5! Awesome sailing conditions. We were sailing a B46 and ran high 8s to mid 9kts SOG with a brief touch at 10 all the way to the mouth of the canal. Day 2 was all motoring up the Delaware River, bucking the tide, in 50 degree weather and single digit winds on the nose. Rather chilly in spite of full foul weather gear and numerous layers underneath it all. Still better than yesterday or today.
Mike

It was a real treat to meet all on Friday.

Clayton and I really enjoyed the get together. The evening was perfect and the company was exceptional! Eryka and Dan, we wish you wonderful sailing. But I must say, it is when things are not going as expected that your memories will be sharpest. And don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for those green flares. A green flash is another story and I wish you many of those.

The only other person who told me they had seen a green flare was an ocean tug captain who had seen one while going around the Cape when the space shuttle was preparing to launch. Wouldn't that be an amazing sight from the deck of your boat?

The Nor'easter(s) going up the coast must be making sailing the last few days pretty chilly and wet. I have just returned from Chicago and it was as cold and raining just as hard when I flew into Baltimore. Where did Fall go? We will be thinking about that dreaded winter boat prep soon.

Will there be a plan for a winter get together to share our boating void around February? Maybe we can get Eryka and Dan on the radio or telephone to share in the fun and share their adventures?

with best regards,

Leslie and Clayton

T37Solare - thanx for the thought; it was on our list to explore when we come back in the spring - now southbound we're hurrying one step ahead of Old Man Winter and it feels more like a delivery than a cruise.

Leslie & Clayton - If you guys plan a winter gathering (sounds like fun!) we'll be there in spirit - I'll try to refrain from posting a gloating photo of us in swimsuits under the palm trees and the sparkling blue Caribbean in the background while you guys are shoveling snow ...

Thanx!! Opportunities to web surf long enough to post here - heck, opportunities to stay in one place long enough to surf - have been rare. We only counted 6 days since we started where we went to sleep at the same location where we woke up, until now (Charleston, SC). I'm being better at keeping the blog in my signature updated, and my FaceBook page (PM me if you're on FB too). We've had a squeal in our steering system for the last 100 miles or so, only on hand steering, fine with autopilot, and only when underway, so try diagnosing that at the dock! Anyway, we think we isolated it this afternoon, tomorrow we depart and head further south so we'll see if its fixed. Thinking of you guys!

Love the Blog, Eryka.

]We have been enjoying reading about Eryka and Dan's adventures. Sounds like they are making good time and are having a terrific time meeting fellow sailors, getting to personally scope out the experiences heading south we hear about. I am so jealous....

This week end was a beauty so folks who still have their boats available for use sure must have been out for a sail. I am working on a project here in PA so we were not able to go out. Soon winterization will happen for us too.

If you were out sailing, share your day with the rest of us who missed these lovely days... it was a nice change from the rain that we did not enjoy last weekend in Queenstown. Could not see the full moon, it was wet, it was cold, did I say it was wet(?) and we did not have any trick or treaters come over by dinghy.

sad to see winter coming...

Leslie
