Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
Down at Smith Creek by Point Lookout now. Had a lovely sail down from Dahlgren to Herring Creek yesterday afternoon and have been basically just hanging out and goofing off most of today.
Did some rig tuning, remounted my solar panels, and made up a day tank for my forced air heater which has been doing sterling service drying things out with the fairly persistent rains this weekend.
Another short day tomorrow. Going to jump out and cross over to see American Mariner then in to Smith Island where I will need to take on diesel... For the heater... The little Yanmar is not getting much run time on this trip other than some short 30 minute runs in the morning to top up the batteries since the solar cells are not earning their pay this time around.
Previous trips up north have typically been pretty frantic with us leaving before dawn and frequently arriving past 10pm so the shorter goals and more laid back pace has been nice.
