I'm a big fan of practicing skills and today's winds weren't bad once you get out of the slip but the cold and precipitation would be no fun at all.

Anyone planning to go out today and calling it good conditions can't read a weather forecast much less a synoptic. Not good judgment.
I went out this morning and other than being below freezing when I left and just above when I got back the winds were light at around 10 knots. Just me and some seals and one lone lobsterman.. I wanted to beat the Nor' Easter and predicted .......

TONIGHT
NE WINDS 25 TO 35 KT WITH GUSTS UP TO 45 KT...INCREASING
TO 35 TO 45 KT WITH GUSTS UP TO 55 KT AFTER MIDNIGHT. SEAS 5 TO
8 FT...BUILDING TO 10 TO 15 FT AFTER MIDNIGHT. RAIN. VSBY 1 TO 3 NM.

SUN
NW WINDS 35 TO 45 KT WITH GUSTS UP TO 55 KT. SEAS 14 TO
19 FT...SUBSIDING TO 9 TO 14 FT IN THE AFTERNOON. RAIN IN THE
MORNING...THEN A CHANCE OF SHOWERS IN THE AFTERNOON. VSBY 1 TO 3 NM.

I will be sailing out from Back Creek at noon and sail till 10 pm or may be a bit longer. I want to do more practices of man over board, heave-to, controlled gyving, and docking. PM me if anyone of you are interested. Dinner on me -rockDAWG

So the self proclaimed "top of the food chain" has resurfaced

Only someone who really doesnt own a boat or has no sense for putting others in danger would risk their vessel or possibly someone elses life (CG) to rescue them, would take a boat out in a winter storm warning.

Ulladh You are a harder man than me.

Forecast for off Annapolis tomorrow;
Saturday: NE wind 18 to 21 kt becoming NNW 23 to 26 kt in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 35 kt. Rain before 11am, then rain and snow. The rain could be heavy at times. Waves 3 ft building to 5 ft.

My boat is still in the water, waiting for haulout

Forecast for Essington PA;
Saturday: Rain before 2pm, then rain and snow. High near 43. North wind between 14 and 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

I would be tempted if not for the cold cold rain.

Who wants to sail tomorrow?

It will be a great condition tomorrow in the Bay. My time-shared boat is available. Anyone want to go sailing either

1. We can sail separately on our own boats, or
2. You can join me in a 37' Jeanneau, experienced sailor only.

I will be sailing out from Back Creek at noon and sail till 10 pm or may be a bit longer. I want to do more practices of man over board, heave-to, controlled gyving, and docking. PM me if anyone of you are interested. Dinner on me
