We were out both this past Saturday and Sunday. Saturday, we moved a friend's Ben361 from Bay Bridge Marina to Pirates Cove on the South River. NW wind, fairly steady at 25 to 30 with gusts to 40....

Re: Cheap Storage Near Spa Creek, Annapolis MD???

Give Betty Cole at Watergate Village a call: 410.263.2361. They're off Back Creek and their annual slip rates are quite reasonable, especially for the area and she may be able to work on a short-term...

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Took our B311 to St Michaels the weekend after Christmas, wonderful trip and loved hanging out with the locals. We finally moved her to winter storage this past weekend. 35 degrees and 15-17 knots...

Re: Anyone wear a PLB?

I'm a big fan of the heave-to method for MOB recovery, too. After we heave-to, we adjust the drift angle with the rudder so we're headed towards the MOB then lock the helm so all hands are available...

Re: Anyone wear a PLB?

My wife got me the Standard Horizon HX851 handheld VHF with integrated GPS and DSC specifically for this purpose. I registered the MMSI number in my name instead of my boat's name since I also take...

Re: Jaws up or jaws down?

We always rig the pole, regardless of spin or jib, with the jaws opening up for quicker disconnects from the sail.

Re: Knapps Narrows depth?

We just went through westbound last weekend (9/14) in a Beneteau 361 (5' draft) about 2 hours after high tide. Minimum water we saw was about 1/2 ft below the keel. Pretty much ran the line between...

Re: VMG--by feel or by GPS?

I've raced on several boats where the skipper/helmsman was buried in his iPad and failed to hold the preferred course so we lost any "advantage" we were getting from the GPS data. During one race,...

Re: Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

Hi, Bill,

We were having the same exact conversation regarding Promise's PHRF. How in the world does it make sense for a cruising boat that's almost 10 feet shorter (us) owe them time! Heck, her...

Re: Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

Bill, we (Midnight Breeze) were puzzled as to what was going on with the tracker. Watching the playback, there's actually two entries for us. One goes from the start until about Cove Point (if I...

Re: Screwpile 2014

Re: Screwpile 2014

Yep, decided to go Corinthian Class this time and managed to cross the line in second place for our class. I took a look at the corrected times in PHRF C and we would've been in middle of the pack. ...

Re: Screwpile 2014

I'm on Midnight Breeze, it's my friend, Rick's, Beneteau 361. You and I probably met at the St Michaels race this past May during the raft up. We were the last boat to arrive before the AYS guys...
