Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Rainy, windy, miserable sailing weather more often than not on weekends when we would normally be sailing. We don't feel like we're missing much having our boat out of action for repair.

Still. I want my boat back in the water where it belongs. Now.

Milwaukee....no that’s ok

I spent 10 years growing up in Rochester , Minn as my father was doing his residency at the Mayo Clinic.
Beautiful place. Winter ice sailing was way cool, but if you think a Sailboat can’t have speed try one of them. We you’d flip, it could be pretty dangerous , but most of the time you were dressed like a yhetti which softened the slide.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

You guys stop your weather whining. I've been waiting 5 days to get out of Block Island Sound/Buzzard Bay and through the Cape Cod Canal. In 5 days I've moved a total of about 45 miles.

And it's getting dire as I ran out of wine 2 days ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Should we call the Coast Guard or the Navy?

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Hey Donna, the sun is shining here today, but there is so much water flowing down the Susquehanna River that I cannot get my boat under the Amtrac Railroad Bridge at Havre de Grace. There are 19 flood gates open at Conowingo Dam and the number could go to 25 by tomorrow, depending on the weather upriver. At 25 gates, parts of Port Deposit will be underwater, Route 222 will be closed due to flooding and the volume of debris headed for the upper bay is unreal.

If things settle down by Saturday, and the water level drops, I'm going sailing - you can John can come along if you wish. In fact, you can sail the boat while I mix the drinks and prepare the food.

All the best,

Gary

Coast Guard. The Navy handles rum shortages.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Just received a photo from the marina, which is now underwater due to the Susquehanna River flooding situation. Sometime this evening, 25 flood gates will be open at Conowingo Dam, most of Port Deposit will be evacuated, MD Route 222 between US1 and Port Deposit will be underwater and my boat will be well above the height of the bulkhead it is moored to. Fortunately, I run long lines, which should be able to handle the rise of water level. I'll be headed there tomorrow, just to be sure.

Donna, all bets are off for sailing this coming weekend - the current in the river in front of the marina is probably 5 MPH faster than my hull speed. If I were to pull out of the slip, I would be washed downriver into the Amtrac Bridge, which would result in the total destruction of the boat in a matter of seconds.

I just looked at the long range forecast, which is for rain beginning again Sunday and continuing through next Saturday. Looks like I'll be stuck in the marina for at least another two weeks - DAMNED!
