Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

The Chessie is so much more than Annapolis. Ripe with the history of the initial discovery and settlements of the New World , to the many Revolutionary War battles , and Civil War battles accessible by water. History is part of the charm. It's uniqueness does come from the thousands of gunkholing and anboring spots. Much of the Bay south Solomons is nspoiked and quiet which lends to it's beauty. The bountiful bird population as the final stop for many on the southern flyway as the first water that doesn't freeze in the winter.

Every place in the country has unique things to offer in sailing. Maine, Massachuettes, Rhode Island, Florida, . We got to charter in the San Juans with their unbelievable scenery.

No one has the best....just the best for you.😀😀😀😀🌪🌪🌪🌪

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Looks like fall is being ushered in today / tomorrow. We are headed over to the Magothy to raft up with long time SN friends and a charter members of the " Chesapeake Posse" on Saturday, Fall is primo time on the Bay. Kids back in school, less people buzzing around..great sleeping weather.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Working on rough planning of our 10 day fall vacation beginning two weeks from tomorrow. May do a few days on the Potomac, a few on the Choptank, a few on the Wye or Mikes , a few on the Chester, and a few at Worton / Still Pond ( depending on debris abatement on the Norther Chesapeake. Georgetown and Rockhall on for sure places. Course the wind/ weather will determine some of the direction, places and we don't want to feel like we're on a schedule.

We will anchor out 8 of the 10 nights probably, but may like to take a marina in Rock Hall and maybe on other place.

We've traveled all these areas extensively but are looking for some new stops.

Anyone have suggestions on anchorages and possible marina stops that you liked?

FINALLY a good looking weekend on both days. We'll head to Chester or Magothy depending on wind (current northerly shift favors Magothy). Let me know where you are and we might dinghy over if we're nearby. Rafting might not be good, since we likely have to return early on Sunday morning (flight from PHL to Milwaukee).

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

My wife and I are probably going to be on the Magothy for Friday and Saturday - our last two days of freedom for our anniversary weekend. If you see a 22' boat out sailing or anchored, give us a wave

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

It was nice out today. Going from Annapolis to Solomon’s was doing 5-7+ till about 1400 when the wind died down. Hope the nect couple of days are same as I have places I want to be.

Saw no debris in water

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

Beautiful evening

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Perfect fall morning. Wind 10-12 for a few more hours then lightening up the rest of the day. Tacking up past the bridge on the way to the Magothy.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Unfortunately, there are 7 flood gates open at Conowingo Dam, the Susquehanna River is extremely high and the current is very, very strong. The water at low tide at the marina was so high I couldn't even climb aboard my boat, let along pass beneath the railroad bridge.

Today is our 56th anniversary, I'm taking my wife to the Wellwood Restaurant in Charlestown, MD, where we will meet up with some old friends that we have known since the day we were wed.

This climate change may force you to move south of the bridge.
