Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

On the Chester by Queenstown Creek, no humidity and very light winds, but ok, we are headed to one of our favorite anchorages...Cacaway. Looks like an extensive dinghy ride today

Beautiful evening sleeping. Mid 00s no humidity...even turned the fans off at 1 AM.

Took an extensive 3 hr dinghy ride up the western and eastern forks of Langford Creek. Lots of Bald eagles spotted .

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Had a leisurely sail down the Potomac a ways on Saturday and dropped the hook in Breton Bay. This turned out to be a really nice place to hang out. There was a little bit of motor boat traffic, but it died out later in the evening. It was a perfect night out on the river with cool temps, low humidity, clear sky, and glassy conditions. The sail back on Sunday turned into motoring when the wind decided to come from due West instead of the predicted North. We would have been tacking until Monday in the light wind. This was our first overnight on the hook this summer and much needed. While the trip started a little rough Friday night with a soaked mattress from a mast boot leak I hadn’t caught and a ball valve handle snapping off in my hand with an ensuing leak I had to rig a fix for, the rest of the weekend was stellar. Next weekend will be boat fixing, the trough in the cycle of boat ownership.

Headed down the Choptank on Sunday and stopped overnight in Lecompte Bay. It was such a beautiful night we slept out in the cockpit.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Did anyone get caught in/around the Magothy or Dobbins Saturday afternoon? Heard about 60kt wind/quarter-size hail- that squall worked itself out before it got much S of rt50.
We were en route to Rhode river, about 2nm NE of Thomas Pt, beating down beautifully at >4kt in 6-8 true, and saw the cell by Herrington headed N, so turned back to Whitehall to get home before the Magothy cell got there. Ended up seeing max 15kt and a nice cooling washdown for 10min as we put lines over. Turns out the cell down South never got to West River area. Sigh. A night in air-conditioned home made the conservative play worth it, esp with a still-anxious 1st mate.

I'm ready for the northern component, wouldn't mind it cooling off a bit.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We had a vigorous run down to Annapolis this morning. Upon arrival, the “occasional scattered shower” became a continuous downpour. We napped for a few hours and called the water taxi. We hit all our favorite spots, but things are changing. Annapolis Ice Cream is under new ownership, and Easy Street Gallery (my wife’s favorite) is closing due to owner’s desire to retire. We picked up a beautiful stained glass mirror at 30% off, but we’ll miss the nice things they always have (and occasionally buy).

We look forward to good sailing conditions tomorrow, but may be a long beat. Need to head home tomorrow night because I need to seal the driveway.
