Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Wow,,,quite a list of accomplishments. Especially in the heat.

I replace our elbow every five years. The carbon buildup can really choke the engine power. I was surprised by how much was in ours a few years ago. Getting it off and apart was a pain too.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We made it to St. Michaels and back this weekend. Really nice conditions on Saturday and Sunday morning.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Just got back from a five-day trip on the Bay. Set out for Norfolk last Saturday with one crew member. Decided not to beat into headwinds once we got out past Annapolis, turned left and spent the 1st night in Tilghman Creek on the Miles river. Thinking that we'd actually head North since the southerly winds were supposed to continue, then be followed by no wind, the next day we ended up turning south anyway and had a mostly pleasant sail to Oxford, though the last bit was quite hairy when a thunderstorm caught up with us right at the entrance to the Tred Avon. Lightning just missed us and struck a daysailer moored off the Strand and it eventually sank. Monday we sailed and drifted and got caught by another storm and sailed, drifted, and motored to a yacht basin on the Patuxent. Tuesday we sailed in boisterous conditions, including a pod of dolphins, down the Bay and around the entrance of the Potomac to St. Mary's city, where we tied up at the dock in front of the college. We were the only boat there. Wednesday we headed back out to the Bay and did an all-nighter, arriving back in the Severn early Thursday morning.

Remind me never to take crew on more than a daysail - things always get sour after a couple of days, it seems. That said, the first couple days were great and we had fine weather the whole trip. And as it turns out, it's good we came back early since we missed being out in all the rain we're getting now.

Wow, sounds like quite the adventure. Glad the lightning missed you.
What's the deal with crew? PM me if you'd rather not air the laundry publicly.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

It sure feels like summer has hit the Bay with the low winds and high humidity we had this weekend.

We stayed on the dock Saturday to take care of some projects and did a short sail around the West River with friends on Sunday. Even ran aground, again. Managed to get off so it didn't dampen the day too much.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We are on the hook in Greys Inn Creek on the Chester after a begnign 5 hour sail over in 5-9 knotts of wind. Nice skirt steak for dinner on the grill with grilled asparagus and pineapple. Beautiful. Sunset. Hoping for better winds tomorrow.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Wonderful little sail this evening! Winds were forecast to be 10 mph, but turned out to be 18 (actual, not apparent) as we beat downriver with a reef in. Things eased up a lot while we ran back wing-and-wing, arriving at the dock right as the sun set:



I've got meetings and a dinner party tomorrow, so no sailing. But we're planning to do a 5 hour daysail up to Philly and back on Sunday, and my 17 year old son wants to bring along a female friend (his first time for that). They're in for a great time!

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Despite predictions of winds less than 5 knots for the weekend, we had an awesome sailing day yesterday. We reached up the bay in 10-12 knot winds, never seeing less than 5.5 knots SOG until the last mile or so when the wind started dying later in the afternoon. We dropped the hook at Worton Creek outer anchorage. The wind went perpendicular to the waves late evening making it a bit rolly, but we did have front row seats on two bald eagles nesting in a nearby tree as well as the huge moon rising. A little less wind today and some drizzle but still a nice motor sail back.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Sunday started off a bit iffy with rain, then came the heat and humidity. Once we got out on the Bay, however, it turned into a great afternoon with mostly sunny skies and winds from the South of at least 11 knots.

Since it was a topic on another thread, I paid close attention to the crab pots. There weren't as many as the other weekend and none were in the float free channel - just right on the edge.

The one picture looks like a commercial for Toby Keith's "Red Solo Cup".

There areat least 6 cups there.
