Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We sailed Sunday out of Rock Hall. Winds started out around 8 knots and after a bit rose quickly to the mid 20's. We reefed and had a blast in gusts to 30 knots true.

We were only sailing for a couple of hours, but it was a great afternoon on the Bay. Only saw two other sails and no powerboats.

We've been on the boat every weekend since mid March. It will likely be April before the new one is commissioned. Going to be a long winter.

We keep the boat at Osprey Point Marina. We like the docks, facilities and staff.

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.
You're going to have to give us a run down on your experiences on the Salty Dog Rally when you get back. Most on here are not aware that you participated but sure have an opinion when things go wrong...

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Last sail of the season is in the books and Cordelia is on her way to the hard for the winter. Squeezed in one last short sail this past weekend.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

ANyone heading out this weekend, we will do our traditional Thanksgiving Weekend sail then probably semi shut the boat down for the season. A few pictures of the year in review...

The year started with the installation of the new engine, Beta 38. In the box still



Newly painted engine bed and bilge...





After we launched, I moved the boat to its new home, Maryland Yacht Club. We were greeted by a family of ducks and the resident member Blue Heron. While I finished numerous other projects including a new battery set up we did some exploring in the dingy from eh dock...









One of the primary reasons we moved to MYC, the pool. The girls love to swim...

Elizabeth






Olivia




A collection from beach combing, I don't remember where





Some grilled pizza



Dinner, actually threw him back



Note the newly powder coated Edson Pedestal



The Angel...



and the troublemaker...



Relaxing in the hammock



Another dingy ride...



Another beach, I think this is Worton Creek

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Great post and pictures Shawn. Was nice having you Irena at the club this year. Was even better watching Elizabeth and Olivia exploring and having fun. Glad you got Windgeist back in her element with her crew again.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We put Spindrift up for sale on 10/27 and had a buyer within a week! The paperwork was finalized last week so we're currently boatless - but we expect to have something new for the start of the 2014 season. We had a lot of fun out there on our L30 and we're looking forward to continuing next season!
