Oh btw, have you mentioned the obscenity you call a traveler to your yacht club? I believe if your traveler exceeds your beam, you must take a 10 sec/mile hit in your rating. Flying buttresses require less exterior support than that monstrosity.

<--- checking the chesbay rule book.....

I'm out, my beers are dry, the rum is gone, and I'm out of smokes...

Thumbs up

This is a trip I've been wanting to do as well. I'll have to see if the timing works.

Quickly looking at the chart, it's a 360nm journey, with 150nm of it offshore, that's a 24+/- hour trip up the coast with no great options to duck in, but in a pinch there are a few. Questions are go up or down the coast & layovers.

It could be (read either clockwise or counter) Annapolis to Solomons to Irvington or Mobjack Bay to Cape Charles or Hampton/Norfolk then offshore to Cape May then Chesapeake City and back to Annapolis. It would be a workable schedule,not too rushed, about a week or so depending on weather. Anyone could hook up with the fleet any any location as it passes.

Then again, only if I can work it into my schedule, and if so I may be looking for an extra hand or two.

That sounds good to me. BTW, memorial day is the 25th of May 2009. That would be an additional day off of work for those of us who still work for 'the man'.

T37SOLARE, I don't mind going around in either direction, and having others come and go at different parts of the trip is exactly what I was thinking. We'll have a mapped route in advance, a list of boats, and ETAs on our stops along the way.

That sounds like fun for those of us not wanting to make the entire trip, sorta of a join-up or drop-out cruise. Maybe make the ones coming in briefly (like me) could the bring beer...

Craig,
Aren't you done modifying that anchor locker as cold storage yet?

Don't worry, some of us can actually make ice while sailing - so my Rum and cokes will be cold.

All
If, and I say If, I can make this we'll cruise with/in company with Craig and his dad on Saoirse and Serenity for as long as we can.

I think he can keep up if we drag our dinghy , promise not to use our screacher, and leave my drive leg down while trimming the sails in 'cruise' mode.
Maybe I'll promise to only use the center 4 (of 8) feet of my traveler also.

I'll be limited on time off as I have a wedding in the BVI to attend in July and only so much vacation time.

If you're talking about the little deck closet up at the pointy end, I've taken out the giant metal bits and ropes and chains and am now fitting insulation.

I'll post a photo documentary this winter... when I finish it up.
