We had a great sail Friday night from Rock Creek to Swan Creek. Wind started off being from the SE but clocked around to the S as we approached Bodkin Point. We just flew across the Bay. There were some periods of light rain showers but then the moon would appear. Very etherial! There were a few boats anchored in Swan Creek and we had a very nice night at anchor. On Saturday, we wanted to leave early to get to Annapolis in time to get a slip at City Dock. Morning came much too early and we didn't get the anchor up until much later than planned. Oh well... We ended up motoring all the way because the wind was more out of the SW and right on the nose. We didn't get a slip at City Dock but found one at Annapolis Yacht Basin with all of the mega yachts. Makes my boat look like a dinghy! There was a huge mega yacht docked at the fuel dock called Hooter Patrol IV. It turned out that it is owned by the Corporation that owns Hooters.

It turned out to be a spectacular day, weather wise. We had a great time in Annapolis, ate at McGarveys and generally caught the town's enthusiasm after Navy beat Air Force in overtime. We listened to music and stumbled back to the boat around 2:30am.

We then had a great sail up the Bay to Bodkin Point under main and staysail. We were making 6.5 knots without much heel and it was great! When we reached the Patapsco, the wind became very shifty. We sailed almost up to Hart-Miller Island to try to get an angle to tack up the river to Rock Creek but we kept getting headed so we motor sailed to Rock Point and then sailed in to Rock Creek.

Hey Chef - is your boat named Puts and Calls?

Hey Gladrags,

Nope, "Puts and Calls" is my slip neighbor...a Tartan 3500. They came in about 30 minutes after we did. They apparently were having some engine trouble, probably due to a low fuel in the tank. They were hosting a Chesapeake Tartan event on Grays Inn Creek.

We're sailing "Windgeist" a older (1982) Tartan 37C, I think we were coming into the creek about 4:00 PM? You?

We should have gone South on Saturday, not West. We were contemplating the Magothy or the Severn...probably would have been a better call

We're sailing a 1987 Bayfield 36 named Mandolin. We keep her at a private slip on Rock Creek, past Oak Harbor. We came in to the Creek around 5pm and had to take on fuel and pumpout which we normally do at Md YC. Puts and Calls was at the dock as was a smaller sailboat that was filling some gas cans. The dockhand told us as we circled for at least a 1/2 hour that Puts and Calls had engine problems but there was no reason why that smaller sailboat was hanging around so long - it was rude, really. Puts and Calls got their engine going as we fueled and made her way back to port.

I agree that she probably suffered from low fuel and the sloshing around in choppy seas. For that reason, I always keep my tank full or nearly full. I have had my fill of fuel problems!

I believe I have seen Windgeist on the waters before.

I believe that the sail over from the Chester must have been a misserable and bumpy one. Straight into the teeth of the wind! Glad we came up from the south as we only had to go into the teeth of the wind in the Patapsco! All in all, a very nice weekend.

How do you like your Tartan?

Tod,

We saw you on Sunday at the MDYC. Thats where we keep our boat. We have also seen you quite a few times around Rock Creek. 35 C&C MKIII name Haleakula

We ran into the same header trying to tack up the river on sunday once we got past Hart Miller (we were on our way back from a night at Warton).

Dave

Must have been a great beam reach down from Worton! That is until you reached the Patapsco.

We frequently take on fuel and pump out at MdYC. It's most convenient and the past few years the pumpout has been very reliable. It seems that either the diesel fuel hose or pumpout hose doesn't reach the western (gas) side of the fuel dock compressing boats to the east end. Seems inefficient. However, the prices and service is good there.

Keep on enjoying this breezy fall weather!

Tod

Hey, with 40-50 winds today, I bet the Chester and Patapsco will be fun, we should all meet around 2:00 this afternoon for some BFS...I am thinking a storm jib and 2 reefed main?

The angle of attack from WORTON to the Patapsco was a close haul after Pooles Island, although we got pushed out into the bay.

The pump out is on both ends, but they both cannot run at the same time as they are using on system. The deisel is 20% discounted to members. If you are ever there or want to hang out for dinner at the club let me know. We are on D Pier slip 13.

The winds today are bonkers
