Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
I haven't been here much... Lots to catch up on and lots going on. A few comments to share from reading some of the recent posts...
Rick... Was good to see you Sunday even if I was late returning you hail on the radio. We had a wonderful sail home Sunday... The sunset was stunning
The Kent Narrows channel is good... I don't recall seeing anything less than 9 feet on the North channel.
Queenstown Creek, has become a favorite of ours. Yeah its skinny amd narrow but once in it does open up and we find it quit nice. Yes, I ran aground there years ago... I recall hanging on the end of the boom for a good hour that day as we dug a nice round hole somewhere off the G3 I think.
Need to meet my Castle Harbor mate... I'll PM you my mobile number
This past Saturday, we got smacked by three storms, the last near Baltimore Light was a SOB. I should have more prepared and conservative with the sail plan, usually I am but... Nonetheless all was fine, need some repairs to the headsail and a new dodger. SMH at myself.
Bad weekend on the bay, at least three people lost their lives, probably four... Sadly 🙏
Rick... I heard the chatter of the rescue by the Bay Bridge, the weekend before was it? Sounded like 5 non englsh speaking folks 18' center console capsized and were quickly picked up by two charter fishing vessels.
Its been a awesome year of sailing so far... Wish I could go even more often. Unfortunately, no extended sails this year. At least not this summer, maaayyybbbeee in the Fall.
See y'all folks out there... Cheers
