What a nasty day it is to be on the water! Not a good day for sure up here in chesape

Sitting this round out again today. I woke up with winds gusting to over 40 this morning. Wow! Thatís alot of wind in this little bay. Itís calmed down now but itís still nasty! I pulled my anchor and motored to the dock and it was sort of cool. I got soak and wet and well now I am having a bad hair day already! 
No kidding though it is nasty I hope to leave in the next day or 2 heading for Annapolis or further south. Taking it day by day! Here are some pics I donít think that I have shared yet! Thinking of the past week or soÖÖMmmmmm Dan

Nice pics. Thanks. You are probably going to want to sit this one out for a couple more days. Too bad you didn't make Annapolis for the layover. This storm will probably turn into a "noreaster" which blows all the water from the east side of the Chesapeake over to the west side filling up the rivers and creeks with very high tides. Stay safe.

Left the Cheapeake a week ago Monday with Carib 1500. Now sitting in Nanny Cay afetr 6+ day crossing. Bit of carnage as seas were up to 15 ft and wind up to 45 kts for slower boats. Two broken booms, many torn sails, no engine, no gensets, no batteries but all made it in safely with only on injury reported.

Sounds like a rough time out there how long is that boat?

I am at Green Point Landing in Worton MD.

I will be heading your way this weekend Scott. Thanks for the offer! Thatís awesome. I am doing some cleaning around here right now to work off the use of the mooring ball. Even though some ppl. said that I could use thereís for free. I feel like I have the time to do some work and why not these folks are nice enough. I am using their shower/wifi and mooring ball.

Another pic from last week.

I'm sitting in the sunshine in Nanny Cay, Tortola - although we experienced thunderstorms over the past few days - first time for me in 30 years. No serious injuries, lots of sail loft work on lots of boats. I had a full batten poke through the batten pocket and cross above the first spreader so had to go up the mast to remove batten so I could reef the main (in reefing conditions). We averaged more than 200 miles per day for the trip - boat is a Taswell 58 with a 49 ft waterline and a reaching machine.
