Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Well, I had a boisterous sail across the Bay and back on Saturday. 'Twas a beautiful day.

Question: Can anyone confirm the SeaTow radio check stations on Tilghman Island and/or Annapolis are operational?

Trying to confirm my radio doesn't work worth a [email protected]&!

Some guy named RhythmDoctor (actually, me) asked the same question a few days ago:

VHF - Transmitting Issue (?) - Page 2 - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

It's been down all season, with no notification that I can find anywhere from SeaTow. IMO it's definitely a hazard for them to still be promoting their service while it's out of commission for a long time.

Yes we saw the HHSA in San Domingo Creek, and in fact stopped and chatted with one of them on our dinghy ride. We were anchored at San Somingo 3 which is the Cove right where you turn to go into the anchorage.
We find it less crowded there ( we were the only boat) plus we got a nice breeze from both directions as the winds clocked from N to East.

Funny we were in Leeds for the first time the weekend before. The entrance being so narrow must freak most people out. The dinghy ride a cross the miles from there is only 2.5 miles.
That could have been us. There were two boats I noticed sailing out of Eastern Bay on Port tack that took them well to starboard of my straight, iron genny line.

I was tempted to go to full sail along with them, but tempus fugit, and I needed to get back to get the the boat cleaned up and start getting ready to get back to work.

Which marina? I'm also looking in that area and need a place where I can do my own work. Is it all DIY or just some that is prohibited?

I don't know if they allow DIY, but you can try Galesville Yacht Yard. West River Yacht Harbor is a Condo Marina and the Yacht Yard is co-located. Its our first season and I have no idea of the yards reputation, but I can say that boats (nice ones) come and go. It is not like the place in Deale where boats went to die, before the management change.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We loved our first taste of the Chesapeake last fall as we headed south, and we knew we wanted to spend more time here on our next migration south.

We arrived at the Bohemia Bay Yacht Harbor on Labor Day where we spent most of the week keeping a wary eye on Dorian. Yesterday we took off and had a leisurely tack fest out of the Bohemia and a bit down the Bay before the wind died. We are currently in Back Creek on the Sassafrass where we will visit the Mt. Harmon plantation today. Looks like we’re moving to Rock Hall tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll get some wind.

Any suggestions of spots to check out are very welcome. We have to be in Annapolis on the 26th to start working the boat shows for three weeks, so we figured we’ll go down the east shore for now before going north up the west shore. St. Michaels is on the list along with Cambridge, and we were in Solomon’s and Worton Creek (which we loved) last year. We were hoping to make it to Tangier this year but we tend to poke along so I don’t know if we’ll make it that far south before we need to head back towards Annapolis.

Thanks!

You can buy yourself some time by passing Eastern Bay and visiting St. Mikes via Choptank River/San Domingo Creek (aka "The back door"). There is a public dock to tie up the dinghy and you are just a few blocks walk from town. That will shorten the trip to Cambridge, but I'd suggest a stop in Oxford, even if it means skipping Cambridge.

There are some Eastern Shore anchorages south of Choptank, but if Solomon's on the list, you may want to cross over at this point and launch to Tangier from there.

Good Sailing.

Totally agree with Palmetto,

Go up the Choptank to San Domingo to visit St Micheals if you want to visit Cambridge. But definitely stop in Oxford. Stay in St Micheals a couple days so one of them is a visit to the museum which will take a half a day. It’s aell worth it to uunderstand the boat building and the oyster harvesting.

If you decided to do the Eastern Bay route to St Micheals take a day to do the Wye River one of our favorite conglomeration of anchorages as there are at least 10 there. Lots of bald eagles too , everywhere.

A trip to Tangier requires 3 days off the way and to be honest with you will probably be disappointing plus lots of skinny water. Once there there is no real history or anything to do. Before I did that I would travel down to Yorktown, but essentially that’s a week of time ( sailing down and visiting) and back. The place is fascinating and steeped in American history with Williamsburg close by. If you decide to do this contact me.

Remember this time of year approx every three days or so a front will come through with its NW winds.

We will be touring the Chessie at this time, but leaving the 26th till October 10. The scenery is fabulous. We usually only go to the boat show evRey few years.

Feel free to PM me on anchorages/ restaurants/ marinas / provisioning
