Re: Aloha! From Hawaii to Maryland
Thanks, Dale! From what I've read so far, I also think this was a good idea :-)
Thanks, Caleb! I read a similar recommendation somewhere. Maybe here? We live in Columbia - anything over a 15 minute drive feels like forever to me LOL but I'm getting over it (it's hard after a lifetime of "ten minutes to the boat, 5 minutes to the Pacific Ocean off Waikiki).
We drove to Pasadena the other weekend to see what that drive was like, and walked around White Rocks (a recommendation from a broker at Crusader Yachts). We drove as far as the gate at MYC. Researching slip rates has been iffy (so many don't list them on their websites, and those may determine the size of boat we can get!). I'm really hoping to do some racing, but that takes crew and my family is just learning so I may have to go OPB for a while.
If you have any recommendations for good places to check out, to keep a boat on the Magothy, I'd gladly take notes! I'm used to a place where I took sailing class or went racing on Saturdays, a place that was social but casual, but I realize I need to be open to what is available around here. Trying new things. Heck, it's the Chesapeake - an amazing place to sail, right? Kids can take classes at the DSC, I can race in Annapolis if I find a boat to take me occasionally, so I'm open to suggestions!
