You can say that again.

I plan to go out again this Friday - Monday for a 4-day trip. Not sure which direction I"ll head, but I'll try to post a video when I get back of how to make béarnaise sauce while singlehanding my boat during a small craft advisory. At night.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

This weekend may be our last sail on our Lippincott 30 as we plan to deliver her over to Lankford Bay Marina on the Chester to go up for sale in the brokerage owned by one of the Lippincott sons. It's been 4 years and a lot of adventures and we're coming full circle - Lankford Creek/Cacaway Island was the first night at anchor we ever spend on the L30! It's bittersweet to let her go, but the time has come for an upgrade. This will be the earliest we've ever ended our season, but we have a busy November coming up and want to get the boat listed before the real dead of winter sets in.

By the way, anyone looking at 80s vintage 30 footers should definitely check out our L30. It's well maintained and upgraded, has a 2004 Yanmar with ~1,000 hours, new mainsail, and new canvas. She's a fun sailing cruiser comparable in many ways to a Catalina 30 but with a gorgeous wood interior.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Bittersweet for sure, good luck with the sale and search for your next boat

We'll be out somewhere this weekend? Planning to keep the boat in water and sail as often as we can through the winter, but I think its going to be a cold and snowy one...which is also fine by me.

We have many fond memories of our many raft ups with you and Sharon on Spindrift. You put a lot of quality work into thatt boat and someone will get a great boat for that.

Hope you search is fruitfull and look to many more times together.

Clay - We plan to arrive mid afternoon tomorrow, stay on the boat tomorrow night, and depart Sunday afternoon so we'll definitely try to catch you sometime tomorrow evening or Sunday.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Awesome weekend for sailing. We got a late start Saturday since we were in recovery from a late night Halloween party the night before We opted to go up to Baltimore Inner Harbor and took a slip at Inner Harbor Marina for the night. Its tradition that we visit the carousel by the MD Science Center, followed by a visit to the flag shop in the Pavilion. Dinner aboard; Veal Medallions with Spatzle, Roasted Butternut Squash, and Brussel Sprouts (yes our kids love my brussel sprouts = bacon is the trick ) Winds were perfect both ways, made great time Saturday into the Harbor. We were sailing along with a race, several of which were trimarans. Damn they were probably clocking in the high teens if not more with the wind we had, some flying chutes...I imagine that was a thrill. Breakfast in Federal Hill Sunday, back at the club we had fun at the kids Halloween party. Another great weekend on the bay, or I suppose this time the river

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We successfully delivered Spindrift over to Lankford Bay Marina on Saturday! We left the Patapsco around 9 am in a moderate breeze and by the time we made it to Love Point the wind was up to 15-18 gusting into the 20s - just off the nose. We were able to motorsail into it and once we turned north to go up the Chester we were surfing downwind doing 6-7 knots. It ended up being a great last sail of the season - though maybe a bit more than we bargained for. Once we got settled in, we stopped by Tango for cocktail hour with Clay and Leslie - great meeting and talking to you guys! Yesterday morning we met with the broker to officially list the boat then we offloaded a carload of gear. It's definitely hard to let our boat go, but it makes it easier to shop for new boats knowing that the wheels are in motion to get the current boat sold. Now we're just hoping the nice weather brings out some fall boat shoppers.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

I had a blast this weekend. Left our dock Friday morning and sailed the entire way to Oxford, a broad reach or run most of the way. Anchored in Plaindealing Creek and was the only boat there except the two fisherman that woke me up 10 feet off my stern at 5AM. Sailed back out the Choptank and got hit with the heavy stuff just before going through the narrows - ended up crossing the bay from the top of Poplar Island across to the West river, going 5+ knots with only a reefed mainsail up. That was wild. I assume the winds were a sustained 20 with gusts to 25 or so, and some of the waves must have been 3 feet. Anchored in the Rhode River, where there were a few other boats. Coming back up the Severn yesterday was painful - the wind varied between zero and just under twenty and veered 30 degrees every minute or two, all afternoon.
