Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I'll be there Tuesday - have a doctors appointment on Monday afternoon. I have to go to tidewater marina to gas up the boat, so I'll stop by and see ya with some honey bourbon. If you enjoy Oysters Rockefeller, I'll take you to an incredible restaurant in Charlestown that serves the best on the planet - The Wellwood. My treat!

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I'm a bit embarrassed but very happy to say we finally went sailing yesterday! With all the work getting the house ready for sale, the crappy spring weather, moving on to the Hatteras, work commitments, college graduations,....I didn't think we'd ever be back sailing. Yesterday afternoon was a lovely day for an easy sail out to the Key Bridge and then up into the inner harbor. We put the boat away and walked back to the Hatteras and 20 minutes later we got hit with a pretty powerful pop up thunderstorm. I had checked the weather and there was nothing predicted. Anyway, hopefully this is the start of a good rest of the season. Living on board in the same marina should give us a lot of opportunities to take advantage of good sailing days. Now if we could just figure out what to do with the dogs.(we are watching our daughters dog until she gets settled in to her new place in NYC).

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

This is the summer of "pop-ups". The weather radar looks like a rash with much of the country covered by angry, red dots.
All you can do, is go sailing, watch the radar and be prepared to anchor or douse sails quickly. It's that, or sit in the house all summer.

We sailed yesterday and the northern tip of a cell grazed us as we put the boat away.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I sailed to the Magothy on Thursday and have gotten my boat hauled out at Ferry Point Marina. I had to motor to a little beyond Annapolis, then had a great sail almost all the way up the Magothy. The Severna Park Yacht Basin, which is close enough to walk to from home, said they wouldn't haul any sailboats, and Smith's, three miles away by water, charges a daily fee while you're working on your boat, so I decided that getting a day of sailing in was worth the "trouble". I hope to get Asp back in the water within a week, depending on how many other projects I try to tackle while it's out of the water.

Due to the north wind currently blowing I may not get there till Wednesday. I'm a cruiser with no schedule so it doesn't make sense to go out into 15+ north wind to go north!! But may decide to run hard tomorrow and make-up the day.

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

Wednesday is fine for me, I'm retired and don't have a schedule.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I may end up out on the water Friday-Saturday with my dad. We're not sure if we're doing to do a single day or overnight. Right now, though, the wind predictions are light... I'd hate to have another windless couple days out on the water. At least any day out on the water is better than one inside the house

Don’t know exactly where you are at but it’s blown’n pretty good out of the NW on the middle part of the Chessy.. In fact..it’s call’n for Small Craft advisories later on... Can’t ask for a better day on the Bay!

Geeze, what a PITA. How far of a drive is it to Ferry Point?
Make sure you write a checklist of all the tools and stuff needed so you don't end up making a lot of trips back home or to the store.
