We're Fairview Marina. Yeah, that was probably us, heading out around 1:30. I am pretty sure we talked to each other via VHF as we were both heading out on Saturday as well trying to figure out how to reach the sailor who was aground at the entrance to Rock Creek. I recognized your boat name as you passed us to starboard.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Yes we headed out together I think. We motored past you with our main up but didn't have our VHF on so we didn't talk. We were headed down to the Magothy for our first overnight anchor of the year ( Thank goodness for the propane heater) Nice looking boat.

We are at the Maryland Yacht Club D Pier facing the lagoon with the three mooring balls behind the club between us and Fairview. How do you deal with that crazy man Mark? We kept our boat there for one winter and he seems to never stop yelling....lol

Finally splashed the boat today, felt great to feel the boat move under my feet, I even got a little emotional LOL. Final engine hook up sometime this week then I'll move Windgeist (German translation=Windspirit) to her new home.

Lots still left to do but still felt great

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

As I mentioned, I splashed but didn't sail. I singlehanded over to the slip and spent the afternoon hoising sails, re-rigging reefing lines, etc. I wore a hat and put up the bimini top to give me some occasional relief from the sun, but I am WIPED OUT by the sun exposure. Heading to bed early.

Great that you are in. Must feel relieved with your new red engine and all the improvements. Now get her over to the club and tart resupllyong her and gt ready to get out sailing.

Great job

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We got our season off to a nice start this afternoon. Nothing spectacular, just a nice day. You could really feel the cooling effect of the water on the breeze.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Weekend two out anchored in Eagles Cove on the Magothy. Rafted up with friends from the club who ave a new too them Tartan 3700. Pretty boat. We sailed own the Bay and into to anchorage in a 10-12 knot with 20 gusts on our "little headsail" doing 6.5 to 7.2 most of the way. Beautiful anchorage with a horse farm with 12 horses anda huge American lflag. Popular in the summer which is why we don't come here as its crowded with people fighting over anchoring to close to each other. We two sailboats are the only ones here tonight.
Gret day for April.

Dave

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We got the boat out of the slip for the first time yesterday! Unfortunately a part popped off the top of the roller furler when we hoisted the genoa and then we started having halyard wrap and binding issues when we tried to use it. So I need to get the rigger up the mast. On the positive side, we sailed under main only and with the bottom job were making 5 knots most of the time. Still a very nice sailing day and felt good to get back out.

On the projects side, I took out the alcohol stove and have been working on installing a propane stove/system. I should be able to finish up the install today. Sharon couldn't stand the alcohol stove so she's very excited about the upgrade.

I made it out on Sunday, all day. The breeze was light, but I made it to Annapolis City Dock and back home. The sun shined all day, and I just bobbed along.

Glad to see you got out.

We saw 15-20 from the Magothy from the WNW until about 2 then it died down. Was a great day with a few more boats out than Saturday.
