Be safe out there, lots of storms headed our way during the next three days.

Typical Chessie storms late afternoon most of them.
One from yesterday evening, another tonight.
Sometimes the % of precipitation is deciding

Anywho, not afraid of a little rain, it's the gust fronts and lightening

Weighed anchor at 6:30. Nice breeze and sail out the Potomac then glassy on the Bay. Motoring up to Solomons.

Don, when you get up this way, head of the bay, I'll be more than happy to fix you a Green Coconut Margaretta or a tall glass of Jim Beam Honey Bourbon. Just let me know when you're in the neighborhood.

What is your itinerary this weekend? If you hit the West/Rhode river on Saturday or Sunday, I'll pop out and visit.

I will have to look those up as I don't have any idea where they are. But Saturday we were thinking sail up to Annapolis and anchor by the Academy, don't have a plan for Sun yet, Monday think we will be at Havre de Grace.

But none of our plans are schedules and right now I'm just thinking about how bumpy this anchor spot is and if it worth moving.

I found them. May stop by there instead of Annapolis as I’ve been there already and wasn’t impressed.
