Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Taking a break this week from the Chesapeake and not a moment to soon. Temps look pretty challenging for the next 8 days or so

Going to Fly to Seattle for a 5 day charter in the San Juan Islands. Weather looks perfect for me there highs in the high 70s . Lows in the 50s

Been studying up on the currents and tides there as they are significant compared to the lack of them here.

ME too. The older I get the more the heat affects me. I can not believe I used to sail without a Bimini. Or work in hot kitchens.

Now I'm not as old as my friend Gary 🎂 But close enough

My excuse is "I'm Scottish and you can stuff these hot mid-Atlantic summers where it don't shine"

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Left Yorktown this afternoon and headed over to see the big ships in Norfolk. Anchored for the night in Willoughby Bay. Watching lots of Naval Air operations.

Grilled a whole butterflied chicken with some grilled romaine, tomatoes,eggplant, squash, onions. Great light meal to end a beautiful day. Finally some sailing today. 8+ SOG with the current into the James River, life is good

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

The breeze tonight is cool and perfect in the bay, a bit from the ocean keeping it cool and steady

We anchored in Willoughby on a trip once. Lots of neat activity.

Not sure if you looking for a diversion for a day, but a little further up the James before Warwick River in Newport News is the Maritime Museum which has the US Monitor in in.

It is one of the best museums I have ever been in. Not only does it chronical the battle between the Monitor and the Merrimack as the first ironclads, the Monitor is the first developement of "turret" technology which changed ship to ship warfare. No longer did ships had to turn broadside to fire its guns. It's pretty neat climbing in the Monitor.

We took a slip in the Leeward Marina first time at the foot of the bridge, Warwick Yacht Club the second and took a taxi over.

Just a thought.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

A former coworker that I haven't seen for 17 years drove all the way from Myrtle Beach to Rock Hall for ASA106 training (Delmarva circumnavigation with Tom Tursi's school). He's going to have some awful sailing conditions for the next couple of days.

We drove down this afternoon to have drinks and munchies with him and show him our boat.

We had hopes of maybe doing an evening sail as temperatures cooled, or maybe playing around on the dinghy (since the motor still needs breakin time). But we quickly realized that it was just miserable outside. I ran the diesel for awhile to test for air leaks, then we packed up and came home.

No sailing this weekend. Might try to break away for a couple days when temperatures break on Tuesday. We fly to the west coast next Friday, so not much sailing in the next couple weeks.

Re: 2017 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Hose connected to the wash down hose/pump run to the cockpit is a lifesaver in this heat. Bonus for doing dishes in the galley

On the hook tonight in Carter Creek. Enjoyed a nice evening in Cape Charles last night. Nice job with the new docks and facilities.

Hoping for some wind soon!
