2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Checking in this morning to see what the new season thread looked like it appears no one has started one.

Best wishes to all on the New Year and a wonderful season for sailing.

To start things off, we expect our first day on the boat of the New Year to be tomorrow.

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Happy New Year to you as well. I'm going to be on the boat but not sailing next week. I need to sew up part of the flap on the jib that covers it when it furls. Not much of a sewer but I'm going to give it a try. Can't wait to get sailing!

We didn't launch last year due to John's work travel schedule. This year will be different. We started our projects yesterday. Launch date is 1 April after which we intend to tear up the bay.

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I have a few electronics projects planned. I have a Seatalk/NMEA converter/WiFi router arriving tomorrow. It will integrate depth/compass/GPS/AIS (and eventually wind) into my navigation tablet so it's all in one place.

A new Windex arrived yesterday, so that will go on the masthead as soon as I fabricate an extension arm to move it away from the antenna. The current Windex was mangled by a PO who avoided building an extension arm by bending the Windex itself to avoid the antenna. In so doing, the fins ended up pointing forward, not backwards. Shawn is the only person who ever noticed that (last September while anchored in Still Pond). I've procrastinated on that one for several years, but a good price came up on Amazon so I bought a new one.

Finally, I have an wireless electronic wind transducer that will hopefully come in March. I hope to put that at the other end of the extension arm from the Windex. But I may decide to test it out at deck level for the first year to make sure it's reliable. In that case, I'll mount it at the very front of the bow pulpit.

All that, plus due for new bottom paint - it will be a busy Spring.

Happy New Years to All

We finally winterized Haleakula today after staying overnight last night. Our club, Maryland Yacht Club had an awesome New Years Eve Party attended well.

Because our GM and Executive Chef resigned prior to the event the responsibilities for running it, making the menu, cooking fell to me.

I was able to encourage 15 members to help the day preceding , dec 30, to make over 2300 upscale handmade hor devours as well as prep the Italian, Chinese, seafood and carving stations. I was fortunate to get staff out of one of the restaurants units I am in charge of to come a do the cooking and plattering that evening.

The event was a great success, a good band, a nice safe place to be on New Years for those of us who dont have to stay home with kids. And people didn't have to go on the roads as we had limo service and many stayed on their boats.

Pictures can be seen at Facebook friending the Maryland Yacht Club. Our club really is a special place

Happy New Year!

I'm hoping to get out today and possibly Sunday before putting The Office to bed for a couple months.

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We were on the boat on New Years Day also. Unfortunately, the boat was sitting on stands in a parking lot. Still nice to be aboard for a few minutes. Spring cant come fast enough!

Re: 2015 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Well, for the first time in decades, my boat list is very, very short, I'm gonna desert the old girl and my wife and I will drive south as soon as I'm healthy enough to do so, drink lots of booze, sing to the lades in skimpy bikinis, and come back home in mid March with a good tan.

Cheers,

Gary
