Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I will be on the Choptank somewhere all weekend. I plan on sailing some fishing some maybe the back way to St. Mikes. Finally a weekend without a graduation or wedding to go to. The weather does look good. I talked to a few fisherman today and a few pods of dolphins have been spotted between the bay bridge and Poplar Island. Have fun and be safe.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Got the pressure fresh water system cleaned out and functional. Water tastes fine. Hellooooooooo onboard showers!

Got the genoa patched up. The two splits were perfectly straight and easy to fix. Not sure I'll get to use it thought. Maybe on Sunday.

We'll be overnighting this weekend, our first cruise on the new boat. Probably meeting up with friends in Annapolis.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Anchored in Town Creek off of Oxford , Tred Avon , Choptank River. Beautiful broad reach sail down at over 7+ knots took us 5 hours. Evening looks cool and clear and very quiet.

Dinner was Grilled Seasame Ahi tuna with potato salad and fresh garden salad.

Almost a full moon and a nice breeze.

Nice to be on the water with the Admiral

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We closed on the C34 yesterday (papers submitted for "Breakin' Away"), so today is our maiden voyage. Our first big accomplishment was getting out of Tracey's/Rockhold Creeks without running aground. (Long Bar is just a long as I remember it from when I was 10 years old!)

No wind means it's an all-motor delivery to Rock Hall. The couple boats I can see with sails up are going nowhere. But it's a good test for the motor, which is humming away smoothly at 2500 RPM and 165F. Too many stinkpots makes it lumpy ride.

We're passing Thomas Point Light right now.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Can anyone report on how soon the moorings in Spa Creek fill up prior to the Oct Sailboat show?

7 days out at least. The ones under the bridge have a 35 ft limit. Use the ones in back creek. The taxi goes out there also not as frequently

Congrats on the new boat. You guys will surely enjoy this next phase keeping a boat here and having weekends. Hope we can raft up soon and get a look at her.

Re: 2016 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We sailed some in light winds on the Choptank...5-7 knot winds . E could only manage 3.5. Glad we had our 155😄😄😄🍦🍦

We passed two schools of rays sunning on the surface. Water quality must be good

Headed now to San Domingo Creek and a dinghy ride to St Micheals so Donna can antique.
