Re: Race to St Michaels

We were cruising from Annapolis to St Mikes 2 years ago when the elf Classic was going on. Very nice to see old & new classics racing. Elf is quite a looker. Bull & Bear are pretty cool too, and quick

Re: Race to St Michaels

Man, I envy everyone doing DBT or Miles River this year. Its gonna be epic.

Actually, I envy any one that will be sailing this Memorial Day weekend. Family responsibilities have priority for me this weekend.

Have fun and be safe everyone.

Re: Race to St Michaels

Bubblehead, just ease a little, head down, and have someone blow the vang. Ain't nothing wrong with a little round up.

Sheet it and send it!

Re: Race to St Michaels

Hey Greyhound37

Short notice, but I'm afraid I just read this. If you've still got room I'd be interested in joining tomorrow.

I've been cruising on the bay since 2008 but the last two years have been pretty lean and I've never raced. I did ASA course work at Annapolis Sailing School, Chesapeake Sailing School, and Rob Swain in Tortola. So... how much use I'd be beyond rail meat is for you to decide, but with the weather it sounds like it's going to be an exciting day.

I have not made enough posts to send PMs yet so if you read this send me a PM with contact info.

Thanks!

Re: Race to St Michaels

Man those DTB guys are rockin' down the bay. I wish they all had trackers but at least two boats in A1 and A2 have AIS.

There is a PHRF A2 boat already past Stingray point. I saw the A1 boat earlier but can't find it now. They may have turned off the AIS.

Re: Race to St Michaels

The TP52 finished around 530pm. 7 hours and 2 minutes. New course record. Crazy average.

Re: Race to St Michaels

Do we look skeered? Great sail. We had a ball. Skipper made a few (3) costly tactical calls so we did not place well but the fun meter was pegged.

Agreed - we had planned to set sail on Saturday, but the NW wind blew all the water out of our marina. It was 2 PM before we started floating free so we stayed put. On Sunday, sailed from Deale, MD to Solomon's Island, broad reaching in 15-20/25knots all the way.
