Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I am loading the boat tomorrow after work and sailing Saturday morning. Sails went on last weekend just need to load the galley and the bedding. Winds will be a little on the light side 5 to 10 but a nice relaxing shakedown cruise will be good. Almost forgot the bar is not stocked, a toast will be needed to kick off the 2016 season. I will probably sail from Cambridge to the mouth of the river and back that's roughly 32nm round trip. Water temp is in the mid 40's so i guess it will be colder on the water than at the dock. I'm ready it's been about 3 1/2 months.

Hoping for a bit more breeze than wunderground is forecasting currently, lest our sea trial end up like our mid-December "sail" from the DSC.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

The Eagle has been docked a few creeks over from us most of the winter at the CG Station in Curtis Bay. We've been on her a few times when she was in the inner harbor taking visitors aboard.

We've seen her a few times under full sail, most recently we happened upon her off the Jersey Coast near Sandy Hook when she was transiting southward to South Carolina. We picked her up on AIS and radar first then when she came over the horizon under fill sail she was an awesome sight.

Beautiful ship

Expect to see Haleakula more often on the Choptank this season as we have moved her farther south after 10 years at Maryland Yacht Club. We are looking forward to more time on the Wye , Chester and Choptank. Us C&Cs need to stick together 😃💕😃

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Transiting the Delaware at night can be a nice way to enjoy it

Personally I'd prefer be at sea than transiting the Bay at night...to many confusing lights...just my 1 1/2 cents worth

I hear you, but you realize how fortunate we are to have such nice weather this early in the year? Technically, it's not even spring yet.

I actually had to turn on a ceiling fan yesterday!

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I spent a very stormy night inside the jetties of Brandywine Light. Fortunately, there were some piers inside the jetties, which are primarily used by the USCG guys that service the light. There was a no trespassing sign on the piers, but at the time, I really didn't care what they said - it was a nasty, nasty storm and it lasted for about 4 hours. When the winds subsided, we climbed aboard my 21-foot center console fishing boat and motored back to Dover with a great catch of monster weakfish.

I don't remember how much water was inside the jetties at the time, but if my memory serves me correctly, it was about 7 feet deep. Lots and lots of skeeters, though.

Delaware Bay is pretty at night, and I have traversed it many times in a powerboat, but this coming season will be my first trip in a sailboat. I'm really looking forward to the trip.

All the best,

Gary
