I am sure Bodkin was not your first choice today. Sometimes when you get in a group decision you kind of have to go where the group goes, even if its only 5 miles. I understand that. [COLOR="rgb(160, 82, 45)"]No it wasn't, go with the flow I guess[/COLOR]

Glad you had a great time anchoring with everyone. They are nice people and are fun. We frequently do that. Had I started from the MYC today I probably would have done the same. We have always enjoyed rafting with Hal and Cindy, Dick and Irma, and you guys of course. They are some of the reason we have liked being at MYC. They dispel that "yacht club" persona image. [COLOR="rgb(160, 82, 45)"]Absolutely, wonderful folks[/COLOR]

I thought it useless to come back across the Bay and have no where to sail but the river. Often Cackaway us a 5+ hour sail. Today starting in Rock Hall with he great winds at a good angle once we hit the Chester we were hauling all bough the curves at 7+ with a furled 150. Got anchored in 3 hours. Hopefully the rain holds off tomorrow. [COLOR="rgb(160, 82, 45)"]Roger that, beautiful up there. Rain wasnt much more than a sprinkle about 2:00, looks like the weather held off and turned out to be a great weekend[/COLOR]

Hopefully you'll still be there when we get in tomorrow. Looks like well have good wind to cross. [COLOR="rgb(160, 82, 45)"]Sorry we missed you and Donna, how was the wind? Not much when we left Bodkin this morning[/COLOR]

We'll not be around much the next couple of weeks but we will take along Labor Day weekend to enjoy. If you would send me the diver you guys use, I know its going to need it after sitting

Cheers,

I will send the divers name to your regular e mail account. One is coming to the club next weekend to do a bunch of boats and he's $60

My boat was perfect this weekend after he scrapped her. He said the bottom paint was fine...only a few small barnacles which came off easily. The prop and shaft however were a total mess

Wind today was excellent. 12-15 out of the south. No rain. We sailed all the way back from Cacaway in 5.5 hours, most of it on a broad reach.

Just an FYI Alice passed away.

Its funny Bill and Rosemary (Crazy Horse the 62 ft Sundeer) tried to find us and went to Still Pond. We thought since they didn't make the meeting they weren't coming, that's what drove us to the Chester. They came late around 12. They couldn't have got into Bodkin as they draw 7.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Had a great sail on Saturday and anchored up on the Rhode River for the night. Weather was perfect, aside from a light sprinkle, but plenty cool enough to sit in the cockpit with a cocktail.

A couple from our marina even got a great pic of us sailing past Thomas Point Light.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Got out last Sunday and sailed down the Severn to Annapolis and back from our community pier. Beautiful day, but gusty. We were tacking back up the river and that dumb fake riverboat tour boat made a tight turn around the corner off of the Naval Academy just as we had to tack or hit the seawall. We got laid flat by a gust and stalled right in front of the blasted tour boat while everyone on board watched. We were lucky the skipper slowed down. Then, on the same tack, we crossed to the other side of the river and ran hard aground. My depth finder still read 10.3 feet even after we'd come to a dead stop, and didn't beep until I was up at the bow, getting the anchor ready to bring it aft and throw it over the stern so that we could get the bow into the wind and work our way off of the sandbar. I think the tour boat company owes me some money for all the entertainment we provided for their guests.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Quietly anchored in Jubb Cove, Bodkin after a nice sail today.winds were mainly E / NE at 10-13 which was great for north south tacks. We sailed down to the Chesapeake By Bridge and decided to return tack to get loser to home port as a storm coming up the coast s scheduled to dump a few days of rain.

Dinner was two herb rubbed NY strips, Pittsburg rare with grilled portebellas and grilled argus. Dessert was grilled golden pineapple and grilled fresh peaches drizzled with a port chocolate reduction. Nice bottle of Boogle Red Zin to accompany. Life is good.

Nice to have these cooler days in August on the Chessie.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Had a great sail for a few hours mid-day. We slept at the dock last night and headed out this morning after a run. Sailed until about 2:30, when the wind died. We bobbed back to the West River and motored to our slip, passing several boats more committed to sailing than we were.

Took the dinghy out for a sunset cruise with a nice cocktail.

At the dock again tonight since we have our dog. Walks down the dock are easier than dinghy rides for potty breaks.

Just finished a bit of excitement... A dog swam up to the pier. We drug her up. She jumped off a boat that left a few minutes earlier. She's back on board now, hopefully for good.
