Re: Chesapeake to Newport - first ocean sail

Now I'm just jealous.

A SailNet rendezvous is great but SailNet *flotilla* up the coast???

Chef -

If you stop by at Utsch's I'd love to share a cold one and meet the OC expat ;-)

We are leaving Friday August 17. 4Arch is going as far as NYC. We are headed up to LI Sound and beyound and will return September 3. We would welcome other boats. 4 Arch has the same boat you do. Feel free to PM me.

Re: Chesapeake to Newport - first ocean sail

Ended up on this thread and this is something that I am looking to do this summer, I sail out of Kent Narrows. If you guys do set dates to go let me know perhaps I could tag along. I have never done the trip before so it would be nice to do it with another boat or two.

4arch Maybe a raft up or shoreside rendezvous sometime before this sailing season's over would be in order to discuss the possibilities for next year.

Make sure you post next year when you are going to make the trip. I would like to do the trip also. Would need to coordinate dates with vacation etc.

chef2sail Well the offers there for next year to go up with us. Utschs are family friends of mine for the last 25 years...we always visit with them when we travel. There is a great breakfast restauarant and restauarant across the street (not the Lobster House tourist trap) and my 2nd most favorite restauarant in the whole world is in Cape May. The Ebbit Room in the Virginia Hotel. It is a treat every year for my wife. My first favorite is Roys in Pouipu Kauai or in Kannapoli Maui. Lets get together and talk soon.

4arch The boat's a Baltic 35 VTM. We took a slip in Cape May at Utschs. I don't think my friend's a big anchoring/mooring fan and we were just along for the ride as far as route planning and stop overs. He also wanted to maximize his time in NE instead of being more leisurely going up. We wouldn't have made all the same choices (but that's always the case when you're on other people's boats) but it was still a lot of fun and gave us the confidence to do it again - and going on our own boat's not out of the question at all.

SVAuspicious Congratulations on your first offshore experience. Fun, isn't it? *grin*

chef2sail What kind of boat was it. Donna and I have made this trip many times and each time we have had a great time. In Cape May did you anchor or take a slip. Maybe next year you guys will take the trip with your boat and join us. We dont usually go all the way up on the outside and take time to come in at 3 every afternoon and try and enjoy the town and anchorage that we have plopped the anchor or taken the mooring in. Most of tyhe towns have launches which are covered by the 25 dollar mooring cost. We occasssionally take slips also.
