Several Tartan sailboats from the Chesapeake Bay Tartan Sailing Club (CBTSC) docked at the Maryland Yacht Club (MYC) Labor Day weekend for some terrific activities on Rock Creek. There was a great crowd that dinghyed over to Mike’s Crab House on Saturday evening in spite of the rainy weather. Sunday brought sunny skies and a relaxed lunch by the MYC pool, a scavenger hunt, and cookout that evening, with a DJ who pumped out the sounds and got the crowd dancing. Lauren and Soren Harbom did a great job organizing the event.
October 2 the Tartan fleet set out again, this time to St. Michaels for a raftup and then a day-long bike ride to Oxford. This was a first for CBTSC, but clearly it was a hit. We enjoyed nearly perfect conditions for sailing to St Michaels. The Saturday bike ride under sunny skies and cool temperatures made for a memorable experience. This surely will become a regular annual feature to the CBTSC cruising calendar. Kudos to Hal and Cindy McClure for planning the event and to St. Michaels Bike Shop for the providing the bike rentals.
