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.
