Ahoy..first time user in Annapolis
 
Hi Sailnet I look forward to being an active participant and hopefully to providing helpful information and answer questions here. I am a journalist and a professional captain and boating instructor based near Annapolis. I grew up on power boats on the Chesapeake but mostly sail now. I have sailed from Southwest Harbor, ME to Key West..parts of it more than a dozen times and have well over a thousand days underway, much of it on the Chesapeake and lots of trips between the Bay and New England and Long Island. Last November I took a Grand Banks 50' trawler to Florida and then sailed a Hunter 45 from Key West to Miami to Bimini to the Exumas and Nassau...wow--the water is amazing! The snow is nearly melted here and the crocuses are already poking through. Thanks.....

Welcome to Sailnut Cap'n44!
You are in a great location for sailing.
Annapolis, a drinking town with a sailing problem.

I look forward to hearing more from you and to spring in the northeast US.

Welcome aboard! You'll find quite a few members from your area.

I'm envious of your melting snow! I'm just northwest of Philly (about 2.5 hours north of you), and we still can't see our grass.

You'll find good people here willing to share knowledge w/o busting balls unlike SA.

It's a small world after all.
I've spent several nights on board in Harness Creek, just north of you.
