Tartan Sailing Club Members Enjoy Swimming, Sailing, Bike Ride

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.
