Wanted to let everyone know we really had a great weekend. Thanks again to Dave and Donna for hosting. It was nice to see some familiar faces and to put faces to names of some new people. We've really appreciated the welcoming nature and sense of camaraderie among Chesapeake sailnetters over the years. We're already looking to next year's event but hope we'll be able to catch up with many of you sooner.

Just got home, the weather's turning real nasty, and I can't afford to get stuck somewhere down south with all my music gear onboard. (Have to perform every day for the next week.) I really enjoyed meeting so many of you at the rendezvous, and I'm looking forward to next year. If I'm still around and kicking, I'll be there.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed so much to make this event a success.

Colin,

My hats off to you. Thank you for coming. Well get to over to the Chessie side again. So many nice anchorages and better yet no green heads.

Was a pleasure meeting you.

Thanks Dave for organizing a great event, and to everybody present, sorry I did not get to meet everyone.

I left at sunrise on Sunday morning about 5:30 AM, the Chesapeake is even more beautiful as the sun comes up.

I need to spend more time in the Chesapeake.

Made it through the C&D to Delaware City by 5:00 PM Sunday, close to 12 hours in the hot sun.

Left Delaware City this morning at 4:15 AM and got the last hours of flood tide then slack almost to Marcus Hook just as the anchored tankers began to swing in the current and a cool early morning breeze. Docked just before 11:00 AM at Essington PA.

And thanks for all the attempts to locate me at the marina Sunday morning! We walked the dock looking for your boat after we finished talking with Gary but you were either gone or on that dock behind the barrier.

To Everyone and All who made it,

It was spectacular to see so many of the SailNet Denizens gathered together in one place and enjoying getting to know each other or renewing old friendships. There is much gratitude way pread around but I'll start the ball rolling....

Dave and Donna,(Chef2sail) and Maryland Yacht Club, thank you for arranging the splendid facilities and the food. Shawn (T37Chef) thank you for holding forth with spatula and tongs, remaining on station until all were fulfilled and filled full. Gary, thank you for the musical accompaniment. Colin, thank you for the record distance travelled in a 20 footer to attend the event. Denise and Hank, thank you for the record drive to the event.Jay and Dan, thanks for the authentic Arrrrrrrrrrh. I am sure there are at least 40 other thank you's due.... But mostly, thank you everyone for coming and supporting the event. As I said the other night, it is the members who make SailNet what it is, and it brought me great pleasure to actually have a chance to spend time getting to know that group in person and seeing everyone enjoying just being together.

Donna, (DRFerron) if I have one regret it is that I never made it down to your end of the pavilion to say hello. I started that way a dozen times but never got past each next conversation. My only other regret is that I never did hear the story behind the Lions of the Chesapeake.

So thank you one and all. I will look forward to the next event with great relish.

Jeff

Only sailors would say someone "blew by them" with a speed differential of 0.5 mph. (or 0.5 kts - same diff).
