TB—

My only question is how a guy that looks like you gets a beautiful daughter like her... it is rather hard to believe that you're related...

I've got some clingstone photos from years ago at home - would have to scan them though - pre-digital. Great diving area, the Striper spearfishing "rocks" there. Back in the late 70s, sailed around that "house on a rock" in a Shields . . . invisible rocks everywhere. Don't ask me how I know.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Lucky for her, my wife contributed more genes than I did, otherwise she'd probably look more like the canine to her left.

TrueBlue,

I didn't mean to sound critical of your sail trim. I thought maybe there was a technique used for upwind motorsailing in a ketch. Anyway, it's always good to experiment.

I will take you up on the invitation to post some "Snotty Weathers" of my own:

We have an autumn tradition in my family where the guys get together for a long weekend of sailing on Chesapeake Bay in November. When family can't make it, we pull crew from local friends.

The Chesapeake in November can be a mixed bag. The majority of time it is actually pretty nice weather, but there are plenty of nasty days too, and as you'd expect they tend to fall on the weekends. So we've had some wet and windy sails. Last Novemebr, we had four boats and a mixed-bag weather-wise:

We had oily conditions on the "race" to the Eastern Shore:





On the return trip, we ran head-on into an autumn gale. We don't have an anemometer on our boat, but one of the Beneslows in the fleet had one and they claimed it registered steady in the low 30s gusting into the high 30s. It kicked up a really nasty, short, steep wave pattern. The Beneslows bailed out and ran for cover in a protected creek. We followed them in, and they rafted off our Pacific SeaAnchor while we caucused on a plan:



We stayed put for the night, and made our way back across the Bay the next day on the tail end of the gale, when winds had dropped down into the low 20s. The return trip is a sort of zig-zag, so it usually combines some reaching with some close-hauled sailing. Here we are enjoying the reaching legs, my novice crew putting in a turn at the helm:





And here's the upwind leg heading across the Bay and the shipping channel, which always adds some excitement:



Ducking a tug and barge, which can be seen under the boom:





And hardenning back-up for the long leg to windward:



Sorry everyone, it's a guys only trip, so no bikini shots....

JRP—

If you have bikini shots from a guys-only trip...I really don't want to know about them.

John,
Where on the Western Shore are you? And where on the Eastern Shore did you go? We are down in Calvert County, and so I dodge the tugs and tows quite often!

Bardo,

We're on the West River, about 10 miles south of Annapolis. We had sailed over to St. Michael's (we know of a few good watering holes over there....)

We used to race quite a bit out of Solomons so I 'm familiar with your stretch of the Bay too. Nice down that way...
