Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We’re anchored far up the Corsica, just enjoying the tranquility. We sailed about halfway from Rock Hall, then motorsailed.

FYI, there appears to be a new Dunkin’ right around the corner from the Centreville dinghy landing. Not planning to go ashore this trip - trying to avoid too much running around.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Traveled from Solomon Islands to Deltaville today. Where where the mighty Chesapeake sailors???? Bet I saw less than 10 sailboats in the 60 mile trip, and half those were in the last 3 miles.

It was real nice day out. Saw 0 debris in the water.

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

There were at least two dozen off Rock Hall. We were wondering if there was a regatta. Thee were another two dozen scattered at various places on the Chester River.

Hundreds of sailorss out in Annapolis area now that you passed through😂😂😂😂😂

We are rafted up with 4arch and family near Gibson Island Inner Harbor.
Took a dinghy ride up to the Eagles Nest horse farm and no less than 25 masts and many more power boats anchored there. Here no one. Even the giant house boat gone for the fall.

Dinner was shrimp scampi and grilled peaches. Lost a pair of tongs...

Was great catching up with good company.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

My wife and I had a nice Friday and Saturday out on the water.

Friday we went up from Sandy Point to Eagle Cove on the Magothy, and the wind was on the nose most of the way. We anchored with 10 other boats in the Cove, and woke up to some horses grazing in the field. The weather was perfect, but a breeze would have been nice so the mosquitoes would have been kept at bay.

We hauled anchor at about 1000 on Saturday, and we ended up motorsailing back for all but an hour of our trip back. We saw a number of people sailing - or just bobbing around with mostly slack sails. When we got close to the route 50 bridge we could see some spinnakers on the horizon.

I don't know if we passed anyone from the forum, but it was great to be out on the water!

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Chartering a boat out of Herrington Harbour north next weekend. Thinking of going to Chesapeake Beach/ rod 'n reel marina just south of there. But the marina website says they accommodate boats with drafts less than 4.5 ft. The sonar chart on Navionics looks shallow. I believe the boat has a 4 ft draft.. I think we'll be there around high tide (lunch time). Should I risk it? Is this approach fine for 4 ft drafts?


I'll certainly give them a call and ask, and check with charter company.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

The channel leading to the Rod and Reel Dock have always been pretty shallow, about 5 feet at low tide. I dragged bottom when going in there when I had a 27 Catalina, which drew about 5.5 feet.

You may want to talk with Fred Donivan, one of the owners about the channel before trying to get in. Fred is an old friend of mine and keeps tabs on the channel depths throughout the year. He managed to get it dredged a couple times, but not recently that I know of.

The facility there is fantastic and you will really enjoy the food it the restaurant.

Good luck,

Gary
