Chesapeake discovery

Not sure how this impacts your sailing, but since we have so many sailnetters on the Chesapeake I thought you all should know.

At least while you are out their you can contemplate the historical significance of the region.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: Chesapeake discovery

Some of the water here on the southern bay/elizabeth river looks older than that!

Re: Chesapeake discovery

There is a plaque in Cape Charles describing the impact crater.

This book is an interesting read on this crater, others, and the history of the Bay. I got it through the Fairfax Library.

Re: Chesapeake discovery

In my 20's I visited a friend's house in deltaville, VA. The ground well water was horribly irony and hard.
That crater/impact explains a lot about the remaining landscape & hydrology.

Re: Chesapeake discovery

why? Why?? WHY?!? to I torture myself with reading the comments below any news article?

Seriously though, that is a very interesting thought. I had never considered water getting trapped by the impact and being left to stew in it's own juices - so to say
