Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Also got out. Westerly wind around 5 knots on South River. Mostly wing and wing out. Tacked back to past Turkey Pt., then motored home. Saw 3 other sailboats in 3+ hours.
Planning to sail Thursday if anyone is interested.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Jeff_H and I were going to go for a sail on Sunday, but there was precious little wind, so we decided against it.

Sure enough, 30 minutes after I hung up with him, I heard my wind chimes ringing outside, so I decided to give it a try. I had a nice little 4 hour sail in light airs and made it home at sunset.

Looks like temps are going to hit the mid 20's at the end of the week, so I guess I'll winterize soon.

Not much wind on the bay today...somewhat chilly, and not another soul around The family opted for a warm fire at home...something special about being out on your own though. Hit a whopping 2 knots SOG...whohooo

no worries, I wouldn't have had much time for that, anyway... Didn't arrive in Annapolis until almost noon, and there was the usual thrash of going over the boat, getting her fueled and provisioned, and so on... Always a bunch of last minute things to do before Fawcett's or WM closes, grabbed a quick pizza with the broker, and it was time for bed... A night out with you and Dave on the eve of a 22 hour shot from Annapolis to Great Bridge is probably not exactly what the doctor would have ordered, anyway... :-)

Next time, if I have a bit more time free, I'd definitely give you and Dave and Jeff H a heads up...

Many big power boats are set up that way. I shifted my A/C connection to hard connects last year and will very likely move my main shore power over this winter.

Sorry I missed you guys, I stopped by to say Hi to Jimmy that afternoon... I was in town to head south with a Valiant 42...

Yesterday was a nice ride down the Bay. Left Port Annapolis about 0400, kept looking for AVENTURA's Parasailor behind me, but he never caught me, I never saw any sign of them :-)

Assuming they did leave yesterday, he's probably outside off the Outer Banks tonight... Looks like they have a fairly favorable window for out around Hatteras, pretty tame for this time of the year... I'm sitting in Coinjock, fixing to head in for dinner later in one of my favorite restaurants on the entire ICW... So, while I might rather be heading where AVENTURA is headed, I'd still rather be sitting here in Coinjock, tonight...
