Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Speaking of the Chester River, I was looking at the map recently at the Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge. The eastern shore of that island looks quite nice for an overnight. Has anyone done this, and how is it? Are there any restrictions there?

I’ve occasionally seen boats anchored there when passing by. The coves and creeks are very shallow but if you have a shoal enough draft (<3 feet) it looks like it would be a great place to explore. I don’t see any anchoring restrictions although you’ll probably encounter a lot of crab pots and pound nets. The main thing is if you do go ashore to be sure to dock or beach your boat or dinghy at a designated public landing and to otherwise honor the rules and operating hours of the refuge.

If you want the natural beauty of the refuge with more depth and greater protection from the fetch of the river, going a couple of miles up to Grays Inn Creek is a great alternative.

I rented from there. A disgustingly filthy boat with an overheating engine that stopped constantly, so we barely got out. All I got was a lame "sorry about that". Definitely not worth the price. They also require ASA 103. But if you find nothing else I suppose it's a boat..

Also try www.boatsetter.com
I rented 'shady lady', which was a lovely boat in Galesville. With all the boats on boatsetter it's up to the owner, so you have to convince them you know what you're doing and won't wreak it.. Most are also bit bigger, 27 ft+

That's my old boat! If the old owner has kept it up, I can confirm it's a nice Lippincott 30.

Wow, small world! Somebody sailed past us yelling that a Lipp 30 was their first boat, maybe it was you..?
Yes it was well kept, and a very nice boat. You can see some photos of it on boatsetter. He's actually selling it now, at least was last fall.

The eventual goal is to buy a boat, but probably not for the first year or so.

I'm hoping you folks could point me to the right place to look for this sort of thing. I live in Springfield, VA and I've begun looking into the sailing clubs on the Potomac, but I'd honestly rather do my sailing on the Bay. I'm open to joining a sailing club if it's not *super* expensive. Also, single-day rentals would be good.

Thanks for any info you can provide!
For smaller boats there's this MacGregor 26 near DC
https://www.boatsetter.com/boats/tss...&package_type=
I'd also look at the hunter 25 there, "sea++". I was going to rent it last year but storm canceled it, owner was nice guy. Good price.

Annapolis sailing school rent out their 24ft rainbows for 1/2 or full day, $200 or so I think. Only require a 101 cert.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Two weeks ago, I launched my Morgan 33 OI and motored 17 miles from the mouth of the Susquehanna River to the top of the North East River to Bay Boat Works to have some repairs done. The weather cooperated, but by the time I arrived, I was shivering like a hound dog pooping peach pits. I need temperatures higher than my age!

The repairs will take about a month, then this old fart is gonna put up the sails and head down Chesapeake Bay for the Atlantic, might make the Delmarva Loop, or just might sail down to South Carolina to visit some friends. My health issues will determine all this, and the past six months has been pure Hell. The lungs are a lot worse, I'm on supplemental O2 24/7, my back and shot, and some other issues recently popped up. Gettin' old ain't fer wimps and sissies!

I rarely am on the forum anymore, though I hope to see many of you while out cruising this summer.

All the best,

Gary

Launching today. But no sailing for a week, until I get the new mainsail.
