Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Well, four people on board. So four cups plus an extra to mix drinks and one to hold snacks - much easier than putting a bowl on an Edson table.

Solo cups have endless uses.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Had a great beam reach sail of6+ knots in 10 knotts of wind to one of our favorite spots...Worton Creek. After a nice swim we had steaks on the grill with grilled tomatoes and asparagus. Dessert was NJ blueberries the best. A little hot till the sun went down.

We have an exrtra day this weekend so headed to Rock Hall and Swan Creek.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We had the same gentle breezes up here. We did a daysail up to the cove at Riverwinds and rafted up with some friends. I inflated our "dinghy in a bag" and floated around the boat scrubbing the waterline. No sleepovers for us because the kids were home, so we sailed back.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We took some family members out for a daysail today. Often when we do that there's no wind, especially this time of year. Today we were very lucky to have a steady 10-12 knots plus. We left late morning and flew out of the river and sailed on a beam reach practically all the way to Rock Hall, then turned around and flew back into the river. Turned out to be an awesome sailing day and looks like the wind will last into tomorrow for those lucky enough to be out. Unfortunately we both have to work tomorrow but we'll probably head back out for the weekend. We're thinking of trying to find a transient slip at a marina with a pool since it's supposed to be in the mid 90's with high humidity through the weekend.

4th of July

We spent the day in the slip, the kids enjoyed the pool while I finished up electrical stuff, ACR, Link 2000, AND Charger are all doing their thing, all I need to check is that the alternator is doing its thing

So we're headed out early tomorrow morning for somewhere North & East, maybe Worton or up he Chester.

Cheers,
Shawn

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Daysail down the river this afternoon. 18 mph sustained, a few gusts to 24. Once we got below Commodore Barry Bridge we had 3' swells - unusual for our protected river.

Didn't see any debris today, but still don't want to risk night sailing, so we're sitting on the dock at West End Boat Club waiting for the fireworks at the nearby casino.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We had a nice broad reach upriver this morning. We grabbed a mooring ball in a cove, and rode to shore on "Take Two," our new little dinghy (just a raft + trolling motor). The sail back was very vigorous, but beating into a strong breeze was still HOT because of the sun. I had hoped to maybe stay overnight in the cove sometime this weekend, but it's too bloody HOT.

This place is not nearly as quaint as the towns on the Chesapeake, nor is it anywhere near as cool as island hopping on the BVI. But it's about a close as we can come to that experience around the Philly area, so it was a nice time that we will repeat in the future.

Good deal. It is hot, but bearable. At night not so bad. We re meeting friends and anchoring in Broad Creek Magothy with them

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Left late morning after breakfast and flew up the bay surfing all the way to Worton Creek. Cooled off in the water. Dinner was Grilled Tuna steaks with Israeli Cous Cous with Oranges, grilled zucchini, and a salad of fresh avocados, tomatoes, and feta tossed with a light vinaigrette.

Getting ready to enjoy a beautiful sunset...it doesn't get much better

Cheers,
Shawn
