Re: Sailabration today

Yeah we wondered what happened to number 6for half the show. His partner did a good jb, but I missed some of the flys where they go act each other. You right about the transport, I thoughthe did an admirable job, but watching him try to do a vertical climb ha. The F18 tail walk was pretty cool where he held it virtuallymotionless 50 ft of the water pointed skyward. Where were those warthogs yohare right.

We are ached in Jubb Cove on the Bodkin. Was a COLD night. No fans and a light blanket needed. this weather has been great. Getting ready for lox and bagels washed down by a cup of Kona.

Re: Sailabration today

It WAS cold last night! Needed a blanket for sure. Spent a quiet night in Rock Creek then back to port. Little wind so we figured "why bother." Coast Guard were pulling all power boaters over in the creek for what I assume was safety inspections. Interesting.

Have you eaten at Mikes at White Rocks? What's your impression? Yay or nay? Just curious.

Re: Sailabration today

We sailed some in the Bay today after anchoring in Jubb Cove, Bodkinn Creek. We saw the Blue Angels take off from Middle River about 1 and practice over the Bay as well as the eastern Shore for a few hours in the distance. At 2 we decide to continue under the Key bridge to watch the Blue Angels again. We hung bu the bridge main up only crossing the channel as we watched them buzz like hornets 3 miles away. They flew over us a number of times forming up for their next runs...

At 6 just before turning up Rock Creek the ARC Gloria (225ft long) tall ship from Colombia passed us.

The weather was perfect both days. Cool...wind...sun...what more could you want.

Great weekend for Baltimore.

Re: Sailabration today

We also were able to get there for the airshow. They seemed to be flying right at us!! We anchored in Bodkin for the night, it was a chilly night. Great time playing cards in the cockpit. When we got home Sunday, the planes we flying right over our house (we live near the Baltimore zoo) - they were VERY loud, but it was a special treat.

Does anyone have any information on Mike's the new place in Rock Creek, do they have a website? I googled it, and got nothing.

Thanks

Funny. My brother's GF said the same thing. We anchored up near the hospital ship on Saturday and had a great time listening to the radio traffic. Egad. It was fun, though, when the powerboaters started turning on their own and I was amazed at the language over ch. 16.

Several times on Sunday as we headed home the CG broadcast the no wake warnings up near the air show. Not once did I hear it on Saturday. The wakes were incredible.

Thumbs up Re: Sailabration today

We had an awesome time sailing aboard the Skipjack Sigsbee on Friday, weather couldn't have been better. The Capitan took us up into the Inner Harbor first, then went out near Fort McHenry to view the Blue Angels practice session as well as a few other planes.

It was the first time my wife and I had been on a sailboat together in over a year, needless to say, that in itself was exciting!

Sunday we met up with family to see all the festivities downtown and to watch the air show in the afternoon. We set up our tailgate party in the parking lot of the 1st Mariner Bank building (almost directly across the river from Ft. McHenry). Turned out to be a excellent choice as the planes were flying practically over top of us.

Here are some pics from Friday

Cheers

Re: Sailabration today

Donna, we must have been right near you on Saturday, we were on the "edge", the last line of boats before the "no-go" zone. There was one poor sail boat who had a tough time anchoring. She must have tried 6 times or so before it finally held. Some of the power boaters were yelling at her to "stop" because she was drifting into them. The coast guard was getting a little concerned and spoke to her a few times.

Thankfully not us (I don't think). Our oversize anchor stuck and held. We were off the Balsa's port bow-ish, behind an Island Packet and in front of a bunch of girls in bikinis who jumped and waved each time one of the planes went overhead like the pilots cared diddly they were there.

Re: Sailabration today

The wakes were insane. On our way to Bodkin we saw a sailboat not moving in the channel on the East side of the bridge past Fort Howard. We stopped and asked if we could assist, but he said he was alright that his engine overheated, so they were slowly setting their hank on sails getting biuffetted by the pb wakes, Guy on the foredeck was smoking a jooint as he handked on the sails SLOWLY. We preceeded on.

Wave,,,,where in Bodkin did you guys anchor. I rememeber seeing a 38 OI as we lkokked for a spot.
