Second...it sounds like you live somewhere within close proximity to Annapolis? We offer some great classes on various cooking topics, I would be happy to help you improve your menu choices I swear its not much more work then heating some Ramen http://www.aacc.edu/noncredit/file/N...heduleFall.pdf
I can cook just fine, I just didn't bring along any decent food this time, since I usually go overboard (pun) bringing too much food. I would have included 1 stewed heron on the list of meals if I'd been able to scramble out of the cabin fast enough.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

A friend and I set off for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge which is the starting line for the Great Cheseapeake Bay Schooner Race.

The breeze started out very light at 6 kts, so we double-handed my symmetric spinnaker on a tight reach to Thomas Point Light from the mouth of the West River. After we rounded the light, it was DDW to the bridge.

Once we arrived at the starting line, the only reminders that we were still in the present day, were hulking bridge and a couple of anchored RO-RO's. It was like the set of Pirates of the Carribean.

I shot some video, and we probably took 1,000 still-shots. We're still sorting through them, but I'll post links to my photo sharing site once I've isolated the best ones. We motored around behind the starting line to stay out of the way.

After the race's start, we sailed upwind into a building breeze. Since I'm able to outpoint most of these old gals, we were able to get ahead of them and get some really good shots of Pride of Baltimore and another boat racing hard and in close quarters.

I think the camera lens perspective doesn't show it, but near Thomas Point Light, it really looked like these two ships were trying to run us down. We weren't pointing high enough to clear the lighthouse, and apparently the tactic these ships employ for tacking is to foot off and build speed just prior to the tack, to carry momentum through the tack, and build speed again.

Last night, a front passed through, changing the wind direction to come from the NW, so I'm sure they had a blast last night, sailing downwind.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Our sailing season is officially over, boat going on the hard today. I plan some repairs/upgrades this winter.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Last weekend wed had our clubs annual Geese Circus watching weekend at Cackaway in the Chester, but had to divert.

8 boats..we being the smallest, 35 C&C, 36 CC Benetau, 3700 Tartan, 38 Hunter, 40 Catalina, 46 Passport, 62 Sundeer, and the mothership..a 68 foot custom made catamaran.

Winds were howling at 25 on the nose when we got out of the Patapsco forcasted to clock around to the NW at 25 overnight with the front passage so we decided to forgo the 4 ft chop on the nose and run for the Magothy to our hiding place Broad Creek.

We had a wild ride down the Bay and into the river and anchor in a great protected area. Party began at 4 PM with hors devores and pumpkin shooters and great hors devores. Big full harvest moon at sunset and great commrradiere.

And in the mnoring the geese followed us and we saw some of the circus with one clanging off our mast and fell onto the deck as they tried to "land" in formation. The mothership hosted apple cinnamon silver dollar pumpkin pancakes.

Sunday was a great sail home in 12-15 knots. Fall sailing in the Chesapeake is the best.

I maybe confused I know they made a few models adding cutting feet and morphed from the Deerfoot as Clay posted.

Having sailed on her 4 or 5 times on the Bay doing 9+ beating and 13+ downwind she is truly a phenomenal boat. Narrow for the waterline. I was fortunate to go with them for a few days offshore a few years ago. The bot handles almost all seas and points of wind effortlessly.

I got to meet their friends who have Ocean Jasper a similar Sundeer who convinced them to buy the boat. A step into another world from their previous Chrisina Hans Christian. and did the world ARC with them. I notice Ocean Jasper is for sail in Oxford for a mere $525,000

Great boats to dream about.

Dave

Never said there wasn't a 62, just pointing out to Dave the boat mentioned is a 60, its at the end of our pier.
