Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We had a mellow day. Replaced one of the bilge pump switch which I bought at West Marine last night ( ran into JeffH and a few laughs, he’s looking younger ) . Did inside boat projects 🧽 no then headed to the movies to see “Yesterday” . Good stories. Excellent music

tomorrow looks like a great sailing day with steady W to WNW 15 gusts to 25. Temps high 80s with dropping humidity. Perfect for N -S oriented runs. May do Swan Creek and Back .....or 😄😄😄😄😄😄

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Beautiful morning temp 80 but the breeze is great and NO humidity. Setting up for a good sailing day. Will be warm when we go back in but without the humidity, bearable. But it’s July on the Chessie. And there is good wind nowadays forecast to increase during the day

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Yesterday afternoon had some interesting weather, these clouds crowded over the mooring field on the North East River looking a bit like doomsday. For about an hour after they passed we had some rain and wind gusts in the high 20s.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Worked on my boat yesterday. Setup an AC unit in the companion way. While it wasn't great, it was a lot better than not having it. I was at least able to knock off a project from my list. Looking forward to my refit being completed. By the time I left, the inside temp was 81, but outside was mid 90s.

Just as I was packing up to head back to the house, it started pouring down heavy hard rain. I got a bit soaked, but 10 minutes away from the marina, it hadn't rained at all. Should have waited in the boat for the rain to pass. Oh well. It was a good day.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Great sail today. We cruised back and forth from the Severn to Rock Hall and back on just a furled jib. 10 steady but gusts in the mid 20s. We just wanted to take it easy so be cut down on the sail area, but going south we still did 6.5-7.2.

Anchored in Whitehall Bay and took a nap and were amused by a Sailtime Marlow with a plow anchor creating furrows in the bottom with poor anchoring technique. He tried at least 12 times. Other boats pulled up anchors to get out of his way. Finally he tried upwind of us. I was going to say something but Donna beat me to the punch. She walked up to the bow and yelled to him, try someplace else.

I had to laugh.....hard.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Evening sail to Eagle Cove on the Magothy. Dinner and relaxing. Took a vacation day for tomorrow. Wind scoop set up in V-berth is funneling ample air through the boat. No bugs, thanks to the breeze.

The sail over was lively in 10-15 kts. Started as a broad reach, but wind shifted and became a hard beat for a short while. Passed through the channel in front of a cruise ship, but we passed with 10 minutes to spare. Still, had to be extra careful not to get caught in irons, and were ready to fire up the motor in case. He was doing 14-15 kts.

On the way into Magothy we passed @T37Chef heading the other way on Windgeist. We chatted briefly on VHF.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I had a chef2sail sighting. As some of you know I work one night a week at the Annapolis West Marine. (I still have my day job but there are great employee discounts that are very helpful when you own and are restoring an old boat plus I enjoy my fellow staff and working with folks who come in to do a project.) Friday I was at the service counter and who should walk in but Dave (chef2sail) himself. It was fun seeing him and having a brief chance to catch up a bit. (Dave- I hope the shower strum box project worked out for you.)

Regards,
Jeff

Perfect advice. Found the proper low profile plastic butter container at home along with good screen. Savings....$45.

Great to see you too.

Your writing about the solo sailing association fascinates me.

Thank you. I have been enjoying working on the board of CHESSS (Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society) to get it going and sailing with CHESSS folks. I also have been getting a kick out of writing the various articles for Spinsheet.
