So it would seem that way. I'm just hoping that people are busy with getting their boats ready (like I am) and don't have a lot of time to post. Bad santa is just up the river from me, if the numbers do drop off I pretty sure we'll both still be going. And I know of one other guy w/ a 30-ish foot hunter that just got back from BVI who will be going but doesn't post much.

On a brighter note, I looked into EPIRB rentals through Boat US and they're really reasonable. I'll have one on board for the trip.

On the downside for me, I've had some stuff come up with the boat that might prevent me from making the trip in May, and some of the originally planned crew has bailed.

On the upside, my older brother is now interested in going, and I think it would be an awesome thing for us to do together, since we are several years apart in age and didn't really do a lot of that brother stuff as kids. Long and short, I'm still working towards the group trip as a goal, but am also contemplating a late season trip if I can't get the stars to align for me in May.

I think you will find Coast Guard VHF coverage is very good on the coast

As long as your are not more than 10 miles out coverage is seamless. Closer in, cell phone coverage is nearly seamless, with small gaps south of Watchapreague and OC. So, you're never really out of touch with the world.


Pasted from Blog:

Delaware Bay and Coast

US Coast Guard. For emergency and non-emergency information requests, including inlet channel conditions and controlling depth, the following contact numbers are preferred. Emergency calls should be on VHF channel 16, or if not possible, 911 via cell phone. *CG has been discontinued. The Chincoteague office should be contacted for channel conditions information throughout the Eastern Shore area.

Indian River, DE 302-227-2440 (primarily search and rescue)

Ocean City, MD 410-289-7457 (primarily search and rescue)

Chincoteague, VA 757-336-2874 (Group Eastern Shore Headquarters. Inlet and passage information)

Parramore Beach/Wachapreague 757-787-9526 (primarily search and rescue)

Cape Charles, VA 757-331-2000 (primarily search and rescue)

I was told that the primary reference is the Coast Pilot (see Appendix III) and that mariners are advised that it contains the most recent NOAA information.

Alternative information sources to obtain “local knowledge” from charter fleet:

Chincoteague. Contact Wayne Merit, Merit Harbor of Refuge @ 757-894-8240.

Wachapreague. Contact Captain Zeds Marina @ 757-787-4110.

I think I'm in, sailing out of Annapolis and likely single-handed.

This is unfortunate, all these people who said they've put off doing the trip for years, and it looks like most will put it off for another year.

I don't have enough vacation to make the trip, but I would like to come out and see you pass the Bohemia River or meet if you anchor in the vicinity.

I am interested in the ocean part of the trip.

Worst case would be for me to get a fleet of boats together for the trip which would greatly increase the safety factor. It takes about a week, allow 2 weeks for weather, rest, and a chance to visit areas along the bay. I've never done an offshore trip before. That seems to have me thinking twice about it, but I don't believe that its an unreachable goal. Most people I've talked to say that a spartan 25' boat has no business cruising the coast. If I'm crazy, please feel free to let me know, as I appreciate all advice and opinions. Merits have done trips to HI from CA and sailed back (single handed mind you) without incident.

If looking to crew for me, I'd be more than happy to explain the provisions (or lack there of) of the boat and my experience. Seems that the most difficult part of the trip would be from ocean city to the mouth of the bay. Its about 140 miles of coastal cruising and around 440 miles total.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Guys:

I am quite sure that we're in. We've got 5 people going on Crishelle. One of our crew members is doing the race to Hampton on a Catamaran to arrive on Sat night. We'll pick him up there where he'll jump on and go from there.

One of the main things we want to do is head off shore from there to "sailfish" in the canyons for tuna and whatever. Theoretically, we would hook up with the rest of the boats in Cape May or Lewes wherever you end up.

So, we need to know who's going. Maybe we need another meeting before leaving....

Moe
