blanc To all friends here, to drunk and to the lake lions.

We logged, in 5 crew, 1432 miles in 10 days, 23 hours, 46 minutes.

You do not like or do sailing, keep trolling sawingknots.

By the way, some of the "Chesapeake Lions" have a good bit of experience offshore. Just because we might live on and love the Chesapeake doesn't mean we don't leave her embrace. I'd sail with chef2sail any time and sleep well during his watch.

Good luck with your trip. I won't be in Beaufort until after the 22nd. Two trips elsewhere before that.

Thanks, I will be leaving around 8, heading to Tortola for 21st. Fair winds to you.

lancelot9898 Merry Christmas all!

Dave your comments made me think of a conversation I had several years ago with a couple from New Zealand who had circumnavigated and lived aboard for the summer there in Solomons MD where I too lived aboard. I enjoyed hearing about their voyages and asked just where was the worst conditions during your circimnavigation. They encountered numerous gales sailing out of Japan, but to my surprise they said the very worse was the conditions where the Potomic meets the Bay. I too have been there in 35 knot winds with sails down under power with the prop coming out of the water in the steep chop. With my current boat I would be sailing rather than under power in those conditions, but it still remains one of my worse conditions too.

The comment from the know it all here reminds me of comments made from the mouth of the south (Ted Turner) when he spoke unkindly about the seagoing abilities of the Great Lakes sailors. Whenever someone speaks thinking that they have see it all, nature will end up biteing them in the ass.

I would sail anyhere with Captain Dave. His skills are incredible and his knowledge and willingness to help as well as give his information to others is priceless. Hihs activity in organizations to preserve our sailing areas as well as the Bay are very important Someday I hope we do get to take that trip together either in the same vessel or as a group.

As you stated so well many of the "lions of the Chesapeake have a great amount of blue water and offshore experience. The comment was meant as a swipe, but actually was a complement to all of us who keep our boats here. We enjoy harboring our boats on the beautiful Chesap[eake where we can wake up in the AM on a creek next to bald eagles and multi colored leaves. The condittions on the Chessie sometimes are far more challenging than the open water sailing offshore due to its shallowness and land configuations and how they interact with the water and winds. Thats not to say that there are perils and large adjustments an offshore passage requires, especially to insure a degree of safety to the boat and the crew which are not found in the confines of the Chesapeake with land no more than 15 miles away at any given point. Lots incidents however occur when coming into the landfall when in difficult conditions vs out at sea.

Many lions have been to the Carribean, New England, England and points further away from home. Our slip mate next to us just got home last spring from taking his 62 Sundeer on the ARCA around the world rally.
