Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Actually I'm 5 minutes from Ferry Point Marina by dinghy.
You said mouth of the magothy - that's up by deep creek. I'm down by the triangle of the MR, #2 and #15 day marks.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Looks like we are headed out going south this AM . Light winds grrr. I think we may head to Whitehall or Mill Creeks as we rarely get there in the summer as its busy and protected ( hot) up inside the creeks.

I have some water balloons so Jeff/ Jaronson watch out

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We are anchored way up Whitehall Creek past the marina in an absolutely beucholic setting. Pars of ducks and geese everywhere like we stumbled into an aviary sex clinic or mating ground.

Lazy spring afternoon. Having some grilled fresh swordfish steaks with fresh line and mangos with a salad for dinner. I've been forced by recent events to change some of my eating habits to eliminate starches so no rice tonight, bummer.

Winds tomorrow expected to be on the quarter sailing home at 15-20 knotts.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We motored down to Broad Creek on the Magothy yesterday afternoon and anchored fairly close to the little island there. We saw a lot of goose, osprey, and blue heron activity. There were a couple of other boats but it was still very serene. Last night the new propane stove made its debut and it was amazing. Now it's possible to do some real cooking aboard without pulling our hair out. This morning the wind was up by 9 AM. We beat out of the Magothy and then sailed on a broad reach out into the bay and jibed into the river. It was an amazing sailing day, especially before the cloud cover started to roll in around noon.

I also have to say the soda blasting and bottom job I did over the winter/spring is proving to be worth every penny. The speeds we were seeing all weekend under motor and sail were remarkable compared to before even when freshly repainted. The boat just feels lighter and more sprightly now.

Sorry we missed you guys. Glad all that work on the bottom showed big results./ Cant wait till the diver gives Haleakulas " bottom " a wipe.

Having propane is a great idea. See you and Sharon soon.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

I caught that 15-20 on the way home from the Spring Show in Annapolis on Sunday.
It turned into an apparent wind 28 at times. A really good shake down sail (not a break down). I'm happy to say my me and my Irwin 38 CC will be having a good summer.

Sorry I didn't take pictures. I will next time for you. She is looking good Chuck and will serve you well. Especially in wind like yesterday. Verty comfortable ride. Ill bet you amazed at the difference the weight ( power feeling of the hull) is making as you cruise in heavy winds vs. skipping across the water.

We were hauling the main pretty well headed up to the Patapso from the bridge doing well in excess of 7 knots with just little handkerchief of a 120 as the headsail and the centerboard down.

I think next weekend its time to go back to "Big Bertha" the 150. The diver should be going under Haleakula this week so that's usually good for at least 1/2 knott.

Re: 2013 Sailing Season

My grass skirt was waving at nearby boats. I kept full sail up (even past 20kts) to see how she handled it.
Dropped a few items off the settee here and there, but pretty stiff at 20 degrees.

The full jib caused a touch too much weather helm - lift made her constantly try to point up, so much than in a real puff Resolute_ZS had full rudder on to keep her from rounding up. I should have bled off some, but I wanted to see what it would do and was having too much of a lazy sail to do the trim in/trim out deal in fluky wind.

It won't take too long for me to loose all my bad catamaran sailing habits and get back to mono hull.
