Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake
We arrived at the boat at 2:30 today with dog in tow. Too bloody hot to go out right away, so we took it easy in the A/C for a few hours. We then headed out, uncertain if it would be just an evening sail or a night on the hook. Wind sensors showed it was dying in Chester River, but picking up in the Bay, so we did a broad reach toward Magothy and arrived in 2 hours and decided not to turn back. Since we wanted a very dog friendly area, we headed to Dobbins Island, where we quickly dinghied to shore so the dog could burn off some energy before nightfall.
There’s just a hint of a breeze, so the wind scoop helps. A fan does the rest. The missus doesn’t like sleeping in the heat, so tonight will test her limits. Temps are supposed to drop in the morning, but no breeze, so it should be a pleasant motor home tomorrow.
