Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Looking around.......never saw anyone sniping at you.......🙀🙀🙀🤺🤺🤺🤺🤺🎧🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪🔪

We in the Chessie are a friendly sort.....unless of course you choose to criticise the grounds we choose to cruise in

Hope you stay this time gets you better weather than when you passed through going north. For many it's been an unusually lousy wet year. We don't mind the rain, but this year we are many inches above our normal allotment.

Our favorite cruising time here is fall. We have a 10 day vacation coming up in Mid October.....apple season and beautiful leaf colors.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

[

QUOTE=TakeFive;2051554202]Now I'm confused. You said not too much debris yesterday, and now lots of logs. What is the current state? I'm trying to decide where to head on Saturday, and will be cutting it close on getting in before dark, so logs are a show stopper. I know there are never guarantees, but I'm looking for any local info I can.[/QUOTE]



Rick remenber his marina is virtually on the Susquehanna a couple miles from the dam. I wouldnt head north of Rock Hall .just in case Gary rolled a couple of logs downstream at us😀😀😀🌪🌪🌪😈😈😈😈

Last weekend we passed you and also sailed all around the Severn and never saw anything except a little bit of coffee colored water above the Bay Bridge. Below it was beautiful as was the Chester.

I doubt you see anything.

Tis the season the cruisers from the north are passing through also. Starts usually Labor Day....peaks during the boat show...lots of Canadian flags in the anchorages. Hopefully they have a great time here.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

You guys are whinning no too much about this debris thing. When went up the Potomac in June it was about where in the log jam to drive though on every curve.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

There are loads of huge logs jammed up in the shallows of the Susquehanna Flats, some 3 to 4 feet in diameter. They will stay there until the next unusually high tide hits, at which time they will float off the muddy bottom and take up residence in the upper bay. These logs often end up washed up on the beaches, and many can be seen on the shores of Pooles Island, the bay side of the Hart/Miller Island complex, and other locations. Some stay there until winter, while others are lifted off by passing storms. These things can be a bit scary, at least to me because I enjoy sailing at night. And because they are water logged, they tend to be just an inch or two beneath the surface, making them invisible to my 3G radar. Fortunately, I have only glanced off most of those that I encountered over the years.

All the best,

Gary

Had a lovely sail on Curtis Bay Wednesday, just a day sail, late afternoon into sunset. Singlehanded, from Ft McHenry to the Key buoy. One of those perfect afternoons: a little beam reach breeze to get down there, a gentle tack back. One of those afternoons that remind you why you love sailing.

Jim,


Did you peek under the beltway 695 bridge and see the Coast Guards tall ship Eagle at the GG yard.
I can email over the Key Bridge around 2:30 an saw the Pride of Baltimore sailing in front of the shipping terminals too.

When I was out sailing last month by Thomas Point light, Eagle came motoring through on its way to Baltimore.

Took pics with my cell phone but they were pretty blurry.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Marina slipholders' party (free crabs!!!) starts today "around 3 or 4". I struggled with whether to do a daysail before or head to an anchorage after. Everything is about 3 hours away, so can't make an anchorage afterwards with daylight. So we were going to head down early this morning and sail before. It took longer getting the dog packed up to go (he needs to come since our daughter is out of town), and then had to make a couple stops on the way down. We didn't get here until about 11:30.

Also my wife is tired and achy from a hard week at work, and was in a crabby mood in the car. Halfway here after one of our stops I suggested that I drive so she could take a nap. "No, I know I won't be able to sleep." I insisted, and she was out cold 10 minutes later.

We got here and she was still sore and tired, so I made the call that we would not go sailing today, we're just going to hang out on the boat. I opened the dodger panel and all the hatches. The northerly wind is blowing perfectly though the boat. The town is quiet, since live music season is pretty much over at Waterman's and Harbor Shack. The wife is up in the V-berth sound asleep again, the dog's asleep at my feet, and I am relaxing in the cockpit reading Woodward's new book.

Why is this noteworthy? I just realized that this is the FIRST TIME we've ever just relaxed in the marina. We're always in a hurry to head out to the bay, or head home after getting back, or I have a long list of stuff that needs to get done. I came here with nothing on the list, and have some unexpected time while waiting for the party to start, and I'm just relaxing, which is what this should all be about anyway.
