Gunkhol'n on the Chessy-Memorial weekend

Jeff, I dock in MillCreek at a private dock on Mulberry Hill Rd. We'll probably anchor just for the breeze. If you see The Office on the hook give me a shout

Re: Gunkhol'n on the Chessy-Memorial weekend

We just got launched this week after replacing out bowsprit due to rotten wood so I don't care where we end up, so long as its on the boat! Actually, we are meeting up with our club at Eagle Cove tonight and then Swan Creek Sunday. We won't be far from the madding crowd; we WILL BE the madding crowd!

Tod, ,

Well look for you on our way to Shaw Bay (Wye River) today. If thereof wind we will do Eastern Bay if not it may be through the Narrows.

Good to hear you are back in the water.

Dave

Re: Gunkhol'n on the Chessy-Memorial weekend

We are sitting anchored nicely in a 4 knott breeze on Shaw Bay on the Wye River. We saw two bald eagles when we entered the cove. Getting ready to have a couple of filets and a nice Bearboat California Pinot noir. About 30 other sailboats and only 5 powerboats here . Good ratio. Was a whiteknuckler through Kent Narrows as we saw 6.1 a few times and had to wait for the bridge in current. Good sailing day with wind SSE at 12-17. Tomorrow headed for Greys Inn with a Rondevous with another Sailnetter we hope.

Time to eat

Dave

Re: Gunkhol'n on the Chessy-Memorial weekend

Anchored in Greys Inn Creek (Chester River) after 8 hours of some of the best sailing I have seen in. A while. Wife is worn out. We also got hit by aCatalina 27 on Eastern Bay in a crossing of tacks where he claimed he never saw us nor did the other 5 on the boat. No damages to the boat,not sure why as he almost T boned us except at last minute I turned away so the blow was more glancing. Some people are just idiots. Scared us and since ni damage we won't let it ruin the weekend.

From now on. We are keeping the air horn or whistle handy.

Re: Gunkhol'n on the Chessy-Memorial weekend

After dodging Alberto and Beryl I spent yesterday driving from Savannah to Norfolk and then taking the train home. *sigh* Poor Janet - no weekend sailing for her - I'm pooped.

Re: Gunkhol'n on the Chessy-Memorial weekend

Just got back home after three of the best sailing days and two night anchors in memory on the Chesapeake. great winds in every leg with beautiful scenery, nights were hot. Got to visit two of my favorite anchorages Shaw Bay ( Wye River) and Greys Inn Creek (Chester River). We had a great broad reach home across the bay to our home port and the Admiral had the helm most of the day some I REALLY relaxed and even took a nap on the way back. She certainly has gained a lot of skills and my confidence from our many weekend trips as well as our long vacations off shore to Long Island Sound and New England. She has only sailed for 7 years now and has really taken to it and loves it ( I am very very lucky),

Re: Gunkhol'n on the Chessy-Memorial weekend

Very envious of the winds you guys had Saturday and Sunday. By the time we cleaned up after the engine replacement, it was Monday morning and no wind to be found. We also discovered that we had no depth sounder. We took her out to test the engine and all is well. Got down to GC1, raised the main and...nothing but flapping sounds...so we headed back to the slip (in record time for us) so John could troubleshoot our depth sounder.

We're ready to anchor out and enjoy our boat now. Please.
