Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Agreed, Stagg and I had a shreeking good ride across to Kipotpeke from Deltaville and are probably going to have a similar run through the washing machine heading across to Hampton Roads tomorrow.

Hold onto your hats and don't forget where you stowed the spares.

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Here's a little dog overboard mishap that happened Sunday morning. I'll leave the Facebook post public for a couple of days before I lock it down again, so look now if you're interested:

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

A few days ago, I watched an old movie, "Summer Rental" with John Candy. When they had the sailboat race during the last part of the movie, I damned near broke into tears. How I miss sailing the Chesapeake on my old tub, Saturday's Child. Unfortunately, those days are long gone for me at this stage of life.

Hope you all have a wonderful sailing season this year,

Gary

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Hi all,
First..travlin-easy..makes me a bit sad to read your last post. I hope that you have a few friends that you can tag along with sometimes. If not, I would help there.
Next..This is "relocate" weekend for me and will involve a South to North Kent Narrows transit on either Saturday or Sunday. None of the High tide times are very convenient....so...does anyone know if the current North channel conditions are the same as last year?
Thanks for any "heads-up"
Patrick

FYI I just read that APS is closing their doors for good. :^( On the bright side they're having a good sale right now, I guess.

Didn't they decide last year to get rid of their rope and hardware, and focus on clothing?

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Monday, my wife and I will be taking our nine year old granddaughter on a three day tour of the region at the mouth of the Rappahannock. Overnight stops will include Little Bay and Milford Haven. I

The girl is no newcomer. She's been sailing with us since she was four.

Yes. I got some great equipment from them when that happened like racing blocks etc.

I frequently bought stuff from them on sale. I checked the website and many sizes are gone.

It’s sad as they were a fixture in Eastport for years with quality stuff

Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

We delayed our 17 day trip till tomorrow morning , first stop Mill Creek , Solomon’s.

From there we will tour small towns and anchorages on the Potomac. Leonardtown, St Mary’s and Brenton Bay, Yocomico and Ingram Creek. After that playing it by ear as we are going to need a store visit possibly for perishable ( though not a necessity)

We are not true cruisers as we like to eat out occasionally and take a slip.

This trip however mostly anchoring and dinghy use to go ashore and only places really with no crowds.
Don’t think eating at restaurants will be a safe option .
