New Year's sail on the Chesapeake

On January 1st I took the boat out for a New Year's sail and it was awesome. I'm on the upper Chesapeake; winds were about 8-10 knots (for a while) and temperature was low 50s. The forecast was for little-to-no wind so I had considered putting it off for another day, but when I saw it kicking up a bit at home I headed to the marina! The winds held up for a great sail until I was headed back in, then died on cue just as I was preparing to fire up the engine.

The bay and Patapsco River were completely devoid of boats. I did see two vessels departing Rock Creek on my way back in. As a bonus, one of them was the junk rigged Terrapin (all I got was an extremely crappy cell phone picture, so here's a pic of Terrapin from the web).

I plan to make this an annual event when possible.
