2010 Sailnet Chesapeake Rendezvous?

The 2008 Rendezvous looked like fun. Perhaps the sticky could be removed as it's no longer relevant? And how about a 2010 one? I'm not familiar enough with the bay to offer up a suggested location. My boat has wheels under it so I can get just about anywhere.

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.

Great Idea....we need something to plan to take our fixation with the snow off of our minds.

We hosted the 2008 Rondevous here in Rock Creek at our club/ marina and of course would be willing to do that again. We have a great cove to anchor in...slips for those who would want one. Best of all we have a large covered land pavillion with 20 picnic tavles and barb b q pits to rill in and hang out and socialize in.

If you want to try somehwere else that is fine and we are in also. Lanford Bay on the Chester comes to mind, Whitehall Bay above Annapolis, Aberdeen Creek on the South River, Broad Creek on the Magothy, and anywhere on the West River. These are all locations where anyone who is northern or central Chesapeake could make on A Saturday night. Can we look at mid June. Lets start planning.

Dave

Dave's suggestions are good ones. I would add Worton Creek, St Michaels, and even Solomons.

sail fast and eat well, dave

And the ball is rolling! Some waterside land with a pavillion sounds great.

The weekend of June 12 would be a better one for me than the 19th.

Is there a ramp and overnight parking nearby to your marina at Rock Creek?

Thumbs up Sounds like fun...a few comments

chef2sail hosted a great SN Rendezvous in 2008, and his offer to do it again is awesome! (It's very convenient for us)

However, my vote would be for something a bit more south on the bay. I'm thinking the Rhode River just behind High Island (or whats left of it ). We can get there with in a reasonable time, and hopefully others would too?

Although it could be a busy anchorage on any summer weekend, I think its big enough that a SailNet raft-up could fit? Also, its well protected and makes for some interesting shoreline dingy rides.

The beach on Flat Island, NNW of Little Island is big enough if we were to venture over.

Any weekend in June sounds good to us except June 5th & 6th




Cheers,
Shawn

I'll probably put in at the closest ramp -- at hull speed I can almost run as fast as the tide. If the current is going the same direction.

Quiet Water's Park on Harness Creek off the South River has a pavilion. I don't know about nearby ramps, perhaps Liberty Marina on South River near Route 2?

Harness Creek is usually a cluster in the summer with many many boats. I suggested Aberdeen which is just around the corner and the next creek west on the South River about 500 yards.

The reason I suggested a pavillion/ place to cook and somewhere to land isa when we hosted it people were able to mingle and circulate more than if they had to hop boat to rafted boat. Also it can still be held if it rains and people who cant boat in can come by land. Also who could forget the ridiculously good food every brought / made / and set up buffet community style led by Shawn (T37chef).

If we cannot find a similar place I am willing to do it again. The distanmce should be attainable by those from Whorton, Middle River, Noprtheast and harvede grace as well as those from Herrington, South, St Micheals, and Rock Hall.

My fear is that the further south we go from the Bridge it may negate the northern branch of the Chesapeake armada from comming. Who can forget Sapperhite...**:**)

Dave.

No argument at all Dave, although my experience with Harness Creek is that it is a little less crowded than you describe. Is there a pavilion to get to from Aberdeen?

I definitely agree with you about the benefits of a pavilion.

In the absence thereof, I think dinghy raft-ups are much more fun than rafting the boats. YMMV.

sail fast and eat well, dave
