3 week summer cruise: Chesapeake to New England

Wave dancer: we did the same thing, started with 1 week cruises then up it to 2 weeks. I remember wifey almost jumped off the boat and swam to shore when I told her we needed to wait for the tide to get back into Colonial Beach after a 1 week cruise. This is our first 3 week trip, so far so good.

3 week summer cruise: Chesapeake to New England

Quick update: we decided to head for New York. We had just docked at Liberty Landing Marina when the front came thru.
We have been at LLM for two nights. Today when the current turns we will continue up river towards Northport.
We cancelled going to Newport and are now making up our schedule as we go. We do want to be in Mystic by Saturday.
A public thanks to Chef2sail who has been our weather router, cruise director, restaurant consultant and technical expert. His help has been and continues to be invaluable!!!

Anytime my friend. Glad to be able to share some of the great experiences we have had on our trips and help avoid the not so great ones.

Hope you both are having a great time/

Dave

Do what I did for upping the sailing time. I upped my life insurance to 1.5 MM, and named my wife the sole beneficiary. After that, she never objects me going to sail at all. In fact she helps me to get everything ready. If there is storm coming in the forecast, she encourages to go. "Honey, Just go and have a good time."

I guess I am just a luck guy.

Unfortunately, your wife may have to deal with a death in absentia situation. She may not be able to cash in that life insurance policy just because you never show up in port again. At common law, you would likely have to be missing for 7 years before you were declared dead, unless there is some accident like a plane crash.

Depending on the jurisdiction, she may have to file a petition to have you declared to be dead, given that you might just have met someone special at sea from the SailNet "Looking for Companionship" subforum.

You are so sounded like a lawyer.

Edited:

You need not worried. Mrs RD is allergic to the words such as sailing, cruising, wind, heeling, white cap, swell, breaking wave, sponge bath, head, and etc, she would never read Sailnet or visit WM.
