Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
This weekend was fabulous. Yesterday was like sailing in a postcard. I sailed to Bloody Point on Saturday, then up the South river to anchor in Harness Creek for the night, then back yesterday.
It was clearly gusting above 20 knots when I passed Thomas Point light yesterday morning, but the stats show 14-16 for that time period. What gives? Are they only taken at the top of the hour or something?
Another thing: while tacking toward Annapolis, I looked back toward the lighthouse, and saw about 25 cabin cruisers, seemingly all the same make, motoring out in a line and turning back around at the same point north of the light. Do any of you know what that might have been?
