Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Dave, Did you have a chance to visit Turner Scupture on US-13? Might be a long walk from the marina, but if you had transportation, it is well worth the trip.

No, but have people say it's a place we should see. It's a long walk to Route 13....then another 2 to the museum. We may see if a volunteer will take us tomorrow. This marina has a list of retired volunteers who are willing if callled to take people places like the museum. If we don't see it tomorrow we will next time here.

T37chef had a positive write up about Onancock. That why we stopped here. He was right.

If you need to be entertained and need action this is so not the place to come. If you like to relax in peace and quiet and like a slower pace. This fits the bill. We like to cook on the boat, however it's nice to visit a good restaurant. This town has a surprising number of better than average restaurants . Some of the fare is just good comfort fo, some have an ethnic bend. The Mallard has a reggae band member Johnny Mo as the Chef.

Tomorrow Mr Jose is off shore in the beginning and middle part of the day. Winds only to be 35-40 with gusts to 45 however push surge into the Chesapeake is 4 ft . Jose is a long living storm. Now calling for it to go north and meander around for a second time off the Mass. coast . Noreeasters can be more distructive to shorefront than people realize because the usually cover multiple high tides.

Keeping an eye on Maria, which track I don't like.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Steve's Weather page mentioned last night Marie, depending on Jose, could come right up the mouth of the Chesapeake. Thoughts and prayers for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands... what a mess. CAT 5 Last I saw ��

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Last night in Onancock. Had dinner out again. I'm ready for home cooking....lol.
Aye at an Irish theme restaurant called Blarney Stone. Corned beef spring rolls ...creative . Bangers and mash....ok. Beer ...excellent.

Today Jose passed through and we are still experiencing 30 steady with an occasional gust higher. Peak winds in the marina were 45 steady and a few gusts in the 50's . Virtually no rain. Flooding however was high moderate with 4 foot surge. Docks were u derwater for a couple hours at high tide

Tomorrow we travel back up the Tangier Sound as the open Bay will be too gusty and be on the nose . Then the winds just die again as the high comes in and settles. Would be nice if it would settle for 8 days and block Maria. Still early but not liking what I am seeing.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Just crossed the Chesapeake (22 mm) and approaching Stingray Point at the mouth of the Rappahankock. Started with a double reefed main and reefed in in 22 steady gusts to 35. We shaken that out and are doing 7+ knots in stead 14 knots.
Destination - Jackson Creek Deltaville.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Nice anchorage. Interesting skinny channel in but following the marks no problem. There are 4 boats anchored here which outdoor take 30 more. We've opted before for Fishing Bay on the Piankatink, which is through the trees on the other side of the Peninsula. Sail over started with two reefs in the main and a blade of the job in Heavy wind and 3 foot swells. This slacked as the day progressed and we covered the 28 miles in 5 hours.

Getting ready to fire up the grill. New York Strip, mini yellow golden potatoes, grilled peaches with cinnamon. And fudge smuggled aboard by the admiral from Onanacock which she just told me about.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Sailing north from Jackson Creek, crossed the Rappahanock And am off Indian Creek area. Winds steady at 8. No waves. Original plans were Mill Creek, but that puts us downwind of Reedsville and the fish processing plant. We could travel further The Great Wiacomico but that means 6 more miles away from the Bay.

On the other hand we could travel across the Potomac ( always a good idea when you can ) in relatively beginning winds and go to St Mary's River. Haven't been there for years. Friends of ours daughter is on the nationally ranked sailing team there. Going there means tomorrow we have a 6 mile jaunt down the Potomac and just turn the corner at Pt Lookout to continue northward. Probably stopping at Solomon's Friday night.

As usual plans remain flexible. We used up yesterday on of the built in weather days as it appears we won't have to worry about them.

On a different note, we enjoyed our route down the eastern shore side of the southern Chesapeake this year. In June we crossed to Cape Charles. People are friendly. Chrissfield is really sufferering . It's the residents who say that too. Onancock has its own laid back culture. A few nice restaurants. Nice but inexpensive houses align the Creek and internally. Cape Charles has restaurants and was a cross between the two.
The anchorages were beautiful in their peacefulness and desolation. Lots of bugs so come prepared. Our netting and flyswatters got a work out.lies bite and are relentless as the famed Jersey green heads. This vacation was a real change of pace, but it's safe to say it will be a few years before we return.

The next few trips will be down the western side of the Bay.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Stopped yesterday in Cartanagena Creek on the Saint Mary's River 7 miles up the Potomac. Pretty area . Passed an old boat I thought was a Skipjack but was informed even rarer it was a bugeye. Today headed into the Pautuxant andshould be in Solomon's in 1 hour or so. Been treated to the roaring of the naval pilots and their jets for the last hour.

We've had brilliant weather almost every day except the one Jose day which we had planned to be stationary in Onancock anyway.
