We'll be at a huge raftup on the South River off Galesville town docks Saturday, PM me if you want to join. Otherwise, we're back to Annapolis on Sunday afternoon.
UH, Galesville is on West River, not South...

Just a quick update! I forgot to mention when we left on the trip down the Delaware River, my racor filter finally quit filtering all those little 10 micronites! So there we were, Michele who still is learning to sail and me changing the filter cartridge! 20 mins! (gotta be a speed record there!) Anyway we chugged along for the rest of the day and night (the 17th) On the head of Delaware bay in the wee hrs of the morning we were in 4-6ft seas! Yeehaw! seasaw! rockabyebaby?

Cheseapeak city was nice as always. Made it to Great Oaks, Naw! I wasn't nervous entering the inlet! That night the weather really went bad! 30-40 mph (not for me) So we stayed and waited until Monday morning. We had to endure following seas of 2-3 ft all the way to the Bay bridge. Suddenly the winds died and we had to wing and wing south for most of the day in much calmer water. When we rounded bloody point we were able to sail all the way into St, Michaels harbor area. We arrived in St Michaels that evening. Still here! sitting in the tap room at Carpenter Street saloon. it's on main street a short walk up from the town dock. Leaving for Annapolis in the morning! But! We may drop the hook at dobbins island. All for now!

When was the last time you hailed someone on a VHS-which is a video tape format, rather than a VHF, which is a type of marine radio.

Agree with Chef as usual... skip Dobbins and either continue around the bend to Eagles Cove (Eagles Nest) or continue up the Magothy 2 more miles and anchor in broad Creek in front of the HUGE glass house on the hill.

uh.. back home now! Tied up to the YC docks at 7 pm (high tide would have been at 7:23. the rest of the trip after leaving St Mikes was boring ! No wind! Dobbins Island was a nice evening. went back to great oaks at dead low tide, ran aground! got unstuck without help and said "F.... it".. and went on up to the sassafras and ordinary point. All we did was motor! GRRRR! The noise that lil 16 hp diesel makes made me insane! Now imagine the big surprise we had when we arrived at Chesapeake City on Friday afternoon... Canal days! OMG! hundreds of boats, floats, dinks, tubes, topless young ladies and more! after much agonizing we talked with the harbor patrol guys and they directed us to the back of the anchorage. The heat finally took it's toll on me and I was just completely burned out. We left the cove in the morning, got a sluggish start and finally picked up the outgoing current to the Delaware. Honestly.. the best part of the trip was the cool windy weather all the way home on the Delaware River! Much of the way we motored with the genoa out helping us cross the 10mph mark since the current was with us too! Fun ride nearly all the way up river! Michele was bored but loved the experiance and is looking forward to our next trip.. (I'm not) :hothead

Sorry about your grounding at Great Oaks. That and the powerboaters have us do Wharton or Stillpond. We were anchored in Eagles Nest this weekend right in front of the horse farm as we were the last to anchor there.

As stated before I am no fan of Chesapeake City.

Well Denise I don't know how you could have asked for a better week. We had storm cells pass above and below us but never felt a drop of rain until tonight after we got home. Just a gorgeous week on the bay.

can't beat myself up because of the weather I guess. that's just how it goes. Motoring between ports with a boat that was designed to sail is just terribly boring! not to mention how slow!

Well you weren't alone. We motored most of our trip although we did get a very nice sail in from Tilghman Is to Oxford in 10-15kt winds. Also motor sailed quite a bit which gave us a lift. Still no complaints on my end as it was such a nice week.
