LOL, I don't know if you saw my own personal collision with the revenge of the Chesapeake wind G-ds, in which I went from a port tack broad reach under spinnaker with the the wind slowly slowly circling my boat 540 degrees before settling in as a starboard tack beat resulting in a windward takedown. Did I mention that I didn't even have to alter course?
I also want to echo how it much I enjoyed meeting everyone. To me this felt like a gathering of seemly old friends, even if we only met a few minutes earlier. I had to hand it to the group, this was one well equipped bunch, bringing a spare Cathy and a spare Donna, that way just in case one of the Cathys or one of the Donnas left early we'd still would have at least one Cathy and one Donna left (you had to be there).
I want to thank Dave and MYC for their great hospitality and arranging for the fireworks and all of the wild life to come visit during the post vituals festivities.
I want to thank the chefs, all of them, for the over-abundance of great food. I want to thank Criag for providing the musical entertainment and the dose of humility as he beat me back to the Magothy, (Did any one mention how bright white and wrinkle free Craig's sails were?).
T-37 Chef, Thanks for the photos. Its always difficult to get good pictures of one's boat. Heck, I even have the sails trimmed half way close to right. (You can get rebuilt and new replacement Datamarine gauges at DMI Marine. DMI Marine, Inc.)
Regards to all,

Sounds like everybody had a great time!
Way to go you Sailnet junkies!
As sway always says "Friends for life" from the internet????
Cpatain Rizzo's wife Eileen just could not understand how we all became such good friends. Its from stories like yours! Sailors sharing their experiences with each other, yep, its that simple. Thank you sailnet and thank you for all those on the East Coast who shared their stories.
(Sway, Rizzo and I will try our best to keep the midwest chapter alive........ all in the area are welcome to join us)

We followed Craigtoo & JeffH out the creek to the Patapsco to enjoy some sailing without the kids for a change and found some of the most bizarre winds I have ever encountered on the bay???? WTH was going on out there, then once back near Rock Creek the winds picked up, some white caps and we sailed all they way back to our slip...nice
Anyway, we were having so much fun and conversation that we forgot to take pictures, but here's a few...
Sapperwhite ready to depart our raft up:
and off they go for the trip home to Harve de Grace
JeffH...sailed right off the end of the T pier then circle around us to say his goodbye, impressive to watch!
Craigtoo and his blindingly new sails...head home from MYC
