Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Yesterday was a beautiful sailing day on the Chesapeake. Decent (albiet shifty) breezes, lots of sunshine and almost no one around. I went sailing with a fellow who had never sailed before. He did great for a first time out. It was neat to see his joy as the things that he had read about turned real in front of his very eyes.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Do you guys have recommendations for boat rental for new sailors in the Annapolis/Deale/Galesville area? My wife and I took the 101 course last fall and would like to rent (or join a club) to get our feet wet on something like a Catalina 22 or 25. The eventual goal is to buy a boat, but probably not for the first year or so.

I'm hoping you folks could point me to the right place to look for this sort of thing. I live in Springfield, VA and I've begun looking into the sailing clubs on the Potomac, but I'd honestly rather do my sailing on the Bay. I'm open to joining a sailing club if it's not *super* expensive. Also, single-day rentals would be good.

Thanks for any info you can provide!

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Tommorow our sailing season begins

Looking to continue with our Spring commissioning tomorrow and fire up the hibernating Yanmar.
Plan on staying tomorrow night. Probably anchored out on one of the Severn Creeks or Mill Creek/ Whitehalll Creek.

Grilled Rockfish is on the menu with dirty rice and grilled pears with gorgonzola cheese.

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Decided to stay tied to the dock. Winds gusting over 40 all afternoon. Didn't want leaving the slip for the first time this year to turn into a spectacle.

Nice and cozy inside. So we grilled the fish , but decided to eat below, which is a a rarity for us. Just good to be back on Haleakula

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

First sail of the season in the books. Beautiful out today. Very light wind . The water temp showed at 45 degrees in the middle of the Bay and 50 in our Creek. The breeze off the water required sailing gloves, sweatshirt, wind pants and good windbreaker. Haleakula showed no issues.

Was a great day for hot chocolate underway

It was a glorious day indeed. We lubed 3 old Grogo's, put on new reg #'s (she's only 20' LOA, so no CG reg), waxed the hull, replumbed galley sink (removed the jerry-rigged nest of valves PO had installed in attempt to use galley pump for salt water rinse), and finished removal of 'shelf' PO had installed in v-berth locker.

The only sailing we could have done was on the hard, but I did sit in cockpit during a break, and made little swishing/sailing sounds :-)

Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

I know I am new to this post, but am very happy to say Monday was the first run out on the new (to me) boat. It was a bit light on the winds, but was able to do a few miles.
