Thanks Gary. I sure hope so. I just retired from the military. I hope to get extra time to work on the boat. So far, my time is spent helping my mother-in-law with my very active 8 month old daughter.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I wish you all Happy New Year!

At first I thought 2017 was a disappointment, since we had to end our sailing in early October due to my new job. But when I look back on it, we actually anchored out much more than ever before. It still was much less than you guys who head out every Friday night for every weekend, but given our current personal situation with jobs often getting in the way, we did pretty well.

In 2018 I want to build on this and use my vacation time wisely to maximize our sailing time. I hope we can head out for at least one 7-9 day cruise in addition to a bunch of 3-day weekends.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Happy new year, y'all!

I'm in the process of building a new wiring harness for the mast, but I'd prefer to do it in weather above freezing. Tomorrow they're predicting a high of 26 and a low of 9... and that's the warmest it's been in a few days! Ugh!

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Tomorrow's high is predicted to be 35F. I'm not buying it. I'll bet we don't crack the freezing mark.

After that, we have 3 straight days of single digit low temperatures before we get any relief. It's so cold that I can't even get my house up to temperature for varnish work. Well, I could if I set my pellet stove for "blast furnace" and I just might. The USCG just came through and broke the ice for Smith Island, so that the islanders can get provisions.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

A liveaboard at my marina is reporting 3/8" ice in Rockhold creek yesterday within the marina and the whole creek frozen over. Not many boats would be getting out, I imagine.

Stay warm, everyone

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Despite the cold, I was able to do some sailing yesterday, in my living room. Me and Bernard Moitessier rounded the southern tip of New Zealand and headed out across the Pacific. We expect to round Cape Horn by early February, 1969.
