Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Guess I'm now done with Chesapeake sailing. I'm anchored at Chesapeake City, now that they dredged it, and am going to be here till Monday at least. All because I needed an $11 capacitor for my generator and no one around had one so I had to ordered it, which means I sit here and wait for it. On the plus side I'm going to have a great view of the fireworks and I can't see how it could get rough here.

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

We hope to get to the boat Thursday evening and sleep over in the slip with the dog on board. Next morning we'll probably do the dinghy test before heading out of the slip.

We did a daysail with the dog about 4 weeks ago, the last time the boat was out of the slip (ugh!), and he enjoyed it. But he's never slept overnight on the boat.

I've heard about the issues at Dobbins, but hoping Friday night won't be too bad. We know we'll want to get out of there early on Saturday before the waterskiiers/PWCs overwhelm the place. If it's going well we may head across to the Chester River (though concerned about shoaling in Queenstown) or maybe Worton, where we can take a slip if we want electric. All of these will still be an easy daysail to get back to Rock Hall if we need to.

Of course, current wind forecast is NW Fri-Sat and S Sun-Tues, which makes it awfully tempting to head south for a couple days. Awfully tempting to try Back Creek or something else down there. Are there good places to go ashore in Mill Creek, or is it too noisy there on weekends?
Which Mill Creek are you referring to (seems every river has one..lol) .

If you are referring to the Whitehall Bay Creeks. You can dinghy to Cantlers. If you decide on Whitehall Creek , our marina has a dinghy platform/ raft. I don’t think John the marina manager would say anything but you can use my name if you want. Both places are in neighborhoods so walking Fido is possible.

Safe Travels Don....maybe we can catch up on the return trip . I should be back sailing by then hopefully.

Delaware River Trip Sucks......hit the end of the Canal 2 hours before the CURRENT changes and you zip on down. Unless you have big wind motor sail to achieve the best speed. Delaware Bay in the afternoon gets pretty rough, one of the worst places I’ve sailed. Shallow, long fetch, short interval on waves. We call them Delaware square waves

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Hats off the the surgical team of GBMC - Greater Baltimore Medical Center. Made my surgery Tuesday go as smoothly as possible. Kind, professional, and caring people. You never know how you will react, but I got anxious when I was there in the AM. I am home ( went home that afternoon) and am off the oxycodone. That stuff really wacks you. I’m sore but my wife , whose a nurse , says I am stRting to act ornery, so she knows I am returning to normal. The removed a piece of spine, also removed my disc which had hardened due to repeated injury and was pressing on the nerve. Today took a small walk like a teetering old man outside. Recovery expected to be 4 weeks. Promise not to give a report ...lol. Hopefully back on the boat in 4 weeks in better shape.Thanks to all who PM me .

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Sounds it is going to work out and become one of those” don’t know why I didn’t do it earlier” things.

Well wishes!

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Did you stay at St. Michael's or did I miss a post of yours? Where did you stay in the mid-Chesapeake then

All the best,

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Bugs you say....
You are about to run the gauntlet of green head flies.....the state bird of NJ.
They live in the marshes on either side of the Delaware River and descend upon unsuspecting unprepared boaters.
Unlike most flies that bit you have to kill these .....they take a pound of flesh so make sure you have multiple flyswatters for you both
If you have Avon Skin So Soft that helps also.

One year my wife and I each had over 300 in the cockpit when we arrived in Cape May.

I know you guys anchor out. The Coast Guard bass or Lewes are the obvious spots. If a marina stay at Utches. Cheap family owned.
Cape May is one of my favorite stops and places. Tons of old Victorian Homes.....great restaurants.....fresh seafood market at the Lobster House from catches right off the boats. Don’t eat there though ....tourist trap.

How tall is your mast?
