Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Funny we had a great broad reach up to Rock Hall
Anchored in Swan Creek. Took a great dinghy ride for 2 hours.

Dinner tonight is sesame tuna on the grill with giant portobello grilled with balsamic vinegar and stuffed with Gorgonzola cheese, and baked potato salad. Cakebread Pinot to accompany.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Anchored back in Swan Creek enjoying our lox, bagels and Kona coffee

For those who wonder about depths we saw 8.5 to 8 plus at MLW right down the middle of the creek past the white marker, the duck blind, and the horse farm. There was a 1.5 extra ft high tide. I mention this as many wonder how far back they can go on the creek. Shallows up on the sides.

Normally there are a lot of people anchored here so that’s a way to get back away from any raft ups. There were only about 25 boats here last night. Plenty of room for 150 more.

Sunset the conches came out .

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

This weekend we participated in what has become an annual tradition of taking a slip at the Anchorage Marina in Baltimore for the second weekend in September, which is Defenders Day at Fort McHenry. The floating marina pool is still open (surprisingly they keep it open into early October!) and that was a lot of fun for the kids. Saturday night they had a Jimmy Buffet cover band at the marina and we stayed on their poolside deck area to watch the fireworks being shot off from the Fort. The Defenders Day fireworks are almost as good as a show as the 4th of July but without the heat and crowds.

Anyone have any interesting plans for this weekend? Doesn’t look like there will be much wind but looks like some nice late summer weekend weather with warm days and cool nights. I’m sure we’re headed out somewhere.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We will get to our boat on the Corrotoman Saturday afternoon. Looks like the winds will urge us north for a few days and then steer us back home for a few days. Planning to spend most nights anchored. There's a good chance we will get up the Choptank or possibly over to Onancock. I would like to be able to stop at Tangier and have some she crab soup and visit Milton Parks. Maybe a gunkholing trip up the Potomac.

Yeah, I've got plans.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Last Saturday we attended a slipholders' party at the marina (free crabs!) which ended too late to head out, so we slept in the slip. On Sunday we did a daysail to Bodkin Creek area and back. Wind was forecast from N, so we had a nice close-hauled sail going out. We hove to for lunch, then went to turn around. But by that time the wind had shifted from the EAST, so our expected easy reach back to Rock Hall didn't materialize. It took a LONG time to get back, and the wife was not pleased. (My fault, I should have anticipated this and fired up the motor sooner.)

Our target has always been to sail every other weekend, and we've been at the boat every weekend for quite awhile, so we're taking a break this weekend, especially with the lousy wind forecast Saturday and my flight to Milwaukee Sunday preventing a Sunday afternoon sail. Instead we're driving down to Virginia to visit my 87 year old father.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

We will be on our fall vacation for 10 days starting Thursday.

One scenario has us going north of the bridge to Worton/ Havre de Grace / Chesapeake City/ Georgetown/ Chester / ending in Rock Hall . Spending two nights in a marina in Havre de Grace and 1 night in Rock Hall on a mooring so we can use the dinghy dock for free as Rock Hall is not really cruiser friendly. All other nights at anchor

Second scenario is Solomon’s/ Cambridge/ Oxford/ St Micheals ( San Domingo way) / Wye/ Annapolis/ and ending in Rock Hall. Two nights in Spring Cove Marina and one night again on a mooring in Rock Hall. All other nights at anchor.

6Hopefully we get some of the weather that was around this week.

Personally we get enough sailing time so when there isn’t enough wind we don’t have an issue with traveling by motor. Damn thing is so miserly anyway. Being on the boat gets us together without being in our normal stuff and there is no substitute at home for having dinner in the cockpit or looking over the water in a quiet beautiful place. We will have plenty of time all winter to be home.

We will be ending our season this year one month early about the end of October and winterizing Haleakula then. In November I have a total knee replacement scheduled and I will be laid up from doing boat stuff for at least 6 weeks so we will do the prudent thing and winterize early.

Stayed there one afternoon to eat at Watermans and walk around.
Just watch the wind from the south and consider using a fender board

Here is the Active Captain write up:

A high bulkhead that is available to cruisers free for overnight. There is a 30 amp plug in the middle of the bulkhead on a light post. Note that you do not want to use this free bulkhead when the wind is blowing from the south. Waves roll in the harbor on due south wind and you will get slammed here. All other winds are good.
