Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

"I've also done Colonial Beach-Annapolis- that's 2 days, so make it 3 for you? 5 seems excessive, weather notwithstanding.
My day 1 is 30nm CB to Pt Lookout or Jutland creek. Ride the ebb all the way down. Wouldn't bother with the time to go up to St Mary's, esp if just for a sleepstop. You're coming from ~Alexandria so add a day, play the current both days otherwise you have no choice but to fight it for at least part."

We agree then. March weather sucks.

Lucky to get 3 good days in a row.

If he can get to the Potomac Mouth in 2 days and get good weather., he could make Deal in one long 50 mile day. Solomon’s is only a duck in place.

I suggested St Mary’s or Smith Creek as both are easy to find a place out of the wind in a dying afternoon sun.

Being realistic 3-4 days if no issues and good wealthier.
4 -5 days , planning for contingencies.

Thanks guys. I can probably delay to April. I don’t relish that weather either. I appreciate the advice.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Now that I have a chance to look more closely at y'all's suggestions, I think the plan will be to go in mid to late April.

Day 1: Alexandria to Colonial Beach
Day 2: Colonial Beach to Point Lookout
Day 3: Point Lookout to Deale

We have friends in Colonial Beach we might be able to stay with when we stop there.

Thanks again for the info. I look forward to running into some of you once we get out on the Bay next year.

Me too. Got the jib off yesterday and was supposed to do the rest on Friday but that got canceled when my wife got ill. So going down Monday and hopefully getting it all done. I got the jib off, gotta get the engine winterized and the water tank emptied.

Palmetto Moon is fully winterized. Staying in the water this year. Systems winterized, canvas off and boom tent up. Will visit every other week or so to keep the batteries topped and will likely let the charger run when we get to prolonged runs of below freezing weather.

Thanks for the link.

Most of us know the disappearance of the migrating islands , especially in the area under the Potomac River.

Smith Island a more important piece of land with a heritage and culture of its own disappears under water a little more each year. There has been a raging debate for years on the worthwhileness of supporting the island with dredge materials.

There are some islands which have increased in size further north with dredge materials from th main shipping channel to Baltimore which in Poplar Island off Tilghman Island and Hart Miller Island north of the Patapsco.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Pendragon is winterized and set up for another down season. Making a list of things to do over the winter. Between the heat and a minor surgery, it was a very small sailing season this year. Next spring I hope to get going early, get out more. It’s still Thanksgiving weekend, so it seems an appropriate time to say thank you to all of you on this list. You are an amazing source of support, good humor, advice and wisdom. Hold fast!

Jim,

Look forward to meeting up in 2020 on the Bay. In the spring let’s set up a weekend to do it.
I’m hoping my rehab continues on it upward arc.
Have a great winter😃😃😃😃
