Hey Ulladh, I just posted for an early spring get-together in March (and sent you a PM about it). I hadn't seen your Cape May/Lewes proposal until afterwards. Let's try to do both.

I'm not sure that we're up for such a long trip (and not ready to relocate this season ), but maybe we can accompany you down the river on day 1, then return on the next day. I'll keep an eye out as your dates firm up.

We'd also be up for driving down to celebrate your arrival.

Things are taking shape. That's good, warming up to the idea of trying to do both.

I don't have a schedule yet for sailing to Cape May, just some time in June.

Alacrity
You can get a taste of bay sailing on a day sail from Salem to Cohansey, or take a wide loop from Salem to the cooling towers on artificial island to Delaware City.
Below Cohansey the bay widens and on a hazy day land disappears.

I will post my proposed route as June gets closer, but for now it will be 3 day sails; Essington to Delaware City to Cohansey to Bidwell Creek.

Hope to see you at Rhythm's pre-launch gala.

Lewes is a neat place, the anchorage possibilities are somewhat limited if there's a northerly blow, but I guess you could find a spot inside Roosevelt Inlet it the weather turned nasty. I've spent a few nights fishing near the Ice Breakers and Rock Walls, both of which provide good protection, but it's an easy place to loose an anchor if you get too close to the structures. The skeeters, gnats and greenies can be your worst nightmare if the wind is blowing off the tidal marsh, but that's true throughout most of the mid-Atlantic region. Hopefully, my boat will be ready in time--I really need a break from work and winter. The get-together would also be a real good excuse for me to make the Delmarva Loop again--something I've only done in power boats. I think it would be a neat trip under sail.

Lewes DE get together late June?

I'm getting to like Lewes DE as a sailnet get together destination. Any interest in the weekend before or after the solstice.

June 18-19 or 25-26

Watch the solstice sunrise from Cape Henlopen on June 21?

I'll be making the Delmarva Loop from June 8th through June 16th. Unfortunately, the other dates are already booked for music jobs.

Maybe I will do the Delmarva Loop next year. This summer will be 2 or 3 or 4 days on the Delaware Bay then back to Philadelphia to generate income.

NJ Transit bus runs direct from Cape May to Philadelphia and Greyhound from Lewes/Rehoboth to Philadelphia.

I have one project in Cape May but it does not justify an entire summer at the shore, more like one meeting one hour per week. Not even enough income to pay for a bus ticket, but who said sailing had to make economic sense.

So my current plan will be to a 2 or 3 day sail to Bidwell Creek on the NJ west coast early to mid June, then Bidwell Creek to Lewes for the solstice and hopefully a sailnet get together.

And yes it is all about me and my schedule.

I will be at Utches a few time this summer and will send you a PM as we get closer to June.
I will be in Cape May for work related activity off and on through out the summer.
