Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Really great sailing Saturday morning. Urbanna to Deltaville and almost back in five hours. Great to have a fresh bottom. I had my son doing the work so I wouldn't stress my back. Maybe I should bring him along more often.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

May 17th and 18th is Chesapeake Light Crafts Okumefest. Even if you have no interest in building a boat it's worth coming out on the 18th as they have about a dozen sailing dinghies and probably twice that many kayaks and canoes that you can try out. It's completely free (as in free beer but without the beer). The event is held on Kent Island.

I'm hoping to have the kayak I've been building done by then, but I'll be there on the 18th either way.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

First sail of season on saturday, and first ever with my own boat. Out of bodkin creek. Plowed along at a relaxing 1 kt. Only other sailboats we saw were motoring.. Not sure who were smarter, but we weren't going anywhere. Nothing broke on the boat and everyone survived so pretty successful I'd say..

Love anchoring in Jub Cove there and have a few friends at BYC. How much do you draw.

Just over 2 ft. So can get into most of the interesting places I think. Ok, found Jub Cove. I'll have to check out the places up the creek soon.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I just got ambushed with the need to work nights the end of next week which is something of a drag but does have the advantage of giving me 6 days off in a row starting tomorrow after work.

Stagg's flying out to join me and we are going to head down the Potomac saturday morning planning to anchor somewhere near the mouth of the bay that night then spend the first part of the week poking around the mid bay area then heading back up the Potomac on Wednesday afternoon - Thursday.

You local guys have any must see suggestions?

I am thinking Tangier and Smith Islands, American Mariner wreck for sure what else should we see? Anything we should avoid?

Looks like rainy weather but otherwise pretty settled and pleasant compared to our usual stomping grounds on Northern Lake Superior.

I’d go either north or south vs east. Very little to see over there except for Ononcock.

North you have Solomon’s, and the Pautuxat....further the Choptank ( Oxford and St Micheals via San Domingo Creek)

South you have lots of neat creeks on the northern neck ( Prentice, ,Indian, Dymer) Deltavile , Urbana and Carter Creek on the Rappahannack

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Excellent intel, I appreciate it!

We are going to play it a bit by ear since the weather does not look particularly nice but will likely try shooting north and checking things out up there a bit.

I'll post up pictures and try my level best to keep up with you guys on the food front but it's not as easy to make smashing great meals on a 26 foot trailer sailor.

Don’t forget forget about St Mary’s River (Carthagenea Creek) , Smith , or Jutland Creeks on the north side of the Potomac. Also Yeacomico and Coan on the southern side of the Potomac have great spots also
