Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We left the dock at 0700 this morning and arrived in Annapolis Harbor at 1000. Vigorous downwind sail coming here with in 16 kt breeze and lumpy seas requiring constant attention to avoid a gybe. There were 3 balls available in the front 40 when we arrived, but a lot of boats left at 1100, and there are over a dozen available now. Itís a gorgeous, cool day with 9 kt northeast breeze through the harbor. Dog peed on command on the foredeck, so we can take our time dropping the dinghy and just relax for awhile.
