Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Just got the confirmation from Katie at Anchorage Marina. Confirmed July 1-October 1. Can't wait to meet everyone. Been racing monohulls since 1974 (I was 9) and racing Multihulls since 1985 (done with math). Anyone need crew for some "Beer Can" races (that's what we called them on the other coast), give me a holler.

Recently did the big ditch (Panama Canal), from San Diego California after two years in Sea of Cortez and Pacific Mexico.

After reading everyone's posts, I've thrown my hat in the ring to stay at Anchorage Marina for the summer. Haven't heard back from them yet on availability and rate for a catamaran.

Again, Thank you for the positive and upbeat (no back stabbing) posts.

Great, I hope to meet you when you get here. I'm at Anchorage Marina, E dock. I'd love to hear about your voyages. How wide is the catamaran? My dock is 40' and I think it's about 20' between finger piers; not sure what the dimensions are on A and B docks, those are longer finger piers. I know they've had cats out on the outside of the P dock, which is the long outer dock. A bit rolly at times I would think? but close to the head out there. Feel free to message me if I can answer any (unofficial) questions.

And you're right, this is a great group, positive, thoughtful, experienced people who have fun and don't do drama.

Great

Pendragon is also in that marina. Good place with lots to do.

You will need air conditioning in the slip as it will be warm those months and to help with city noise, though that is part of its charm as Canton is a vibrant Baltimore neighborhood.

You have about 8 miles to the open Bay . Close by anchorages in Rock Creek and Bodkin Creek. Rock Hall, Chester, and Magothy 20 miles, Annapolis , Whitehall and Severn 25 miles.

Let’s us know when you’ll be down by the bridge and we can meet up

We are in Whitehall Creek but spent 10 years in Rock Creek.

Smile Re: 2020 Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

I've been enjoying reading through this thread and we too are looking forward to getting back out onto the Bay this year! I am a long time lurker, recently joined the forum. Hope to make some new friends here and throughout the Bay, and beyond. It feels warm to see folks who love to be out on the water, used to be out on the water, and look into the future and being out on the water.

FYI - We sail out of Hopkins Creek, back inside Middle River, currently on an '84 Endeavour 40 which we've owned for about 6 1/2 years now.
