Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

After a light wind sail 3 days ago and then 2 days of some rain, yesterday was 13 degrees with lots of wind. Once out of the protected harbour it was a little rough but we had a fast 2 hour sail out to Gabriola Island and back.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

You are right aa3jy, Gabriola Island is not over there but then all this discussion about batteries isn't really about sailing at all....I don't want to ruffle your feathers and so will refrain from telling anyone about our sailing on the Straight of Georgia.

Naaa your not ruffling my feathers..that why I added the at the end..cause I've been by it on my Alaska motorcycle trip via Victoria Island from getting off the BC Ferry at Port Hardy riding down to Victoria picking up the Black Ball Ferry and back over to Port Angeles in Washington State..so I'm somewhat familiar with your area..

My question too. 13 degree centigrade hasn’t been seen here yet. He must be lost or no thread for his area😄🌪🦅

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Down at Haleakula today. Pretty bitter to be working outside as it’s clouding up and tem is 44.
Plan was to take off winter cover this weekend, but in light of Tuesday’s/ Wednesday’s weather
Will wait till next weekend to unfurl Donna’s new bimini.

Today doing indoor projects and staying overnight for the first time this seaSon. Plenty to do. And
time to nap too😀😴😴😴😴😴😴😴

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Exactly my point chef2sail. I wander slightly from 'sailing on the Chesapeake' to 'sailing on the West Coast' and you complain...but you don't mind telling others about your exciting working indoors and having a nap.
As I stated, I will refrain from posting about our pleasant day sails.
Aa3jy. That must have been a great bike trip, I hope that the weather was okay as it can be shaky in the north. I am not being critical but Victoria is a main city as you know, but we live on Vancouver Island which should not be confused with the large port of Vancouver which is across the straight on the mainland. I'm sure you know this, I'm pointing it out for other readers who I know really care.

For some reason Victoria Island was confused with the proper name of Vancouver which by-the-way took me a better part of a day to ride to include visiting the world renown Butchart Gardens..

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Easy does it Paul. Wasn’t Criticizing you. I don’t care where you post.

I was fortunate enough last year to charter for my first time in the San Juan’s. Gorgeous area. That’s how i knew where Gabriola Island and Naminio was. We never made it that far. We anchored/ marina in Deer HArbor, East Sound, Doe Bay and Mud HArbor.

So different fro Chessie or Eas Coast Sailing with the gigantic currents and tidal changes. Here to find that kind of deep water you have to go out in the Atlantic.

Beautiful place to sail
