Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Heading up the Miles past St Micheals to Hunting Creek in the AM to rondevous with 2 sister C&C friends of ours. We've never traveled that far up the Miles but hear it's pretty and quiet. We're bringing tuna, our friends are bringing lamb racks and shrimp. Sounds like a food fest and some good wine. Best of all the company. Decided to head that direction to keep wind accross the boat as it will be hot till the front meanders through late Saturday night and takes some humidity with it.

Our furler foil is repaired and works like butter. Changed the angle on the line from the drum to the first block on the furling line helped.

Looking forward to a great sail both ways lots of laughing as well as a dinghy ride

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We won't make it to the boat until this evening, so we will head out tomorrow. We need to return to Rock Hall by 1 or 2 pm on Monday due to an evening commitment. So we're probably going to head to Worton and anchor off the cliffs. I'd like to jump in and brush off the slime from my hull. Has anyone been up there lately to report on sea nettles?

Another alternative might be to head to Corsica or other Chester River locations, but NOAA's predictions show a higher probability of sea nettles there. Has anyone directly observed that area lately?

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I have never seen nettles that far north on the bay. We're headed to Worton as well for a raft up... and swimming will happen as well as some hull scrubbing

If we are able to get out early tomorrow, maybe we'll see you before you leave!

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Some great wind out today... finally.

My girls are loving it...







Hit 7.8 but I missed the photo op... considering the boat bottom is really dirty I am happy

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Finally got a trip in this year. Thursday night I sailed to that cove near Drum Point on the Wye, yesterday I made my way slowly to Oxford, then made it back up the bay from Oxford up the Severn by this afternoon. Really nice trip, I only wish I had more time and had brought better food. I also wish the chartbook didn't have a page break right where Poplar Island Narrows is. I spent a lot of time sailing by bungee cord, on everything from sailing close hauled to dead downwind wing-on-wing. This is definitely something I'm going to try to get better at.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Wing on wing is a tough sail, even with a whisker pole. I usually do it a lot when returning to the marina, as everything in the bay is always south of me, and the prevailing wind always seems to be southwest during the warmer months.

All the best,

Gary

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Anchored in Hunting Creek about 1.5 miles further up the Mikes River past St Micheals.

We are the Baby C&C at 35 ft. 115 C$C and a 38 Landfall in our raft up. Had a good sail over with winds varying between 10-15 on bean and broad reached so the heat was not an issue.

Got a nice dingy ride further up the Miles. First time in Hunting Creek. A few expensive set back house a lots of trees. Lots of Herron and ibis "hunting" the shoreline and a few red tailed Hawks looking down from above.

We had a great food fest too. Donna and I made Seasame seed seared tuna mignons with a soy ginger wasabi dipping sauce. My chef friend and his wife made pomegranate honey garlic glazed rack of lamb and the third couple brought shrimp scampi.
Grilled asparagus and basmati rice accompanied the proteins.

Dessert was grilled golden pineapple over pound cake with homemade coconut sorbet.

No bugs at all even at sunset so we sat out and talked and talked. Next year they are all planning on going to the LI Sound with us.

Tonight the humidity expected to drop and the winds to swing to the NNW decreasing through the day. Angle of the sun today definitely showed a touch of fall. Sunset was spectacular .
