What a great way to start the sailing season! We sailed out of ‘Let’s go Cruising’ in Annapolis. I love the vibe of Annapolis and there are so many good restaurants and pubs to go to for Friday night dinner. Our boat, the Odyssey, was in terrific condition and sailed very well.
This weekend reminded me of why I love to sail and why I love to sail at the beginning of the season. It could have been a bit warmer, but it was so much better than the overly warm days we can get on the Chesapeake at the end of May.
We had fabulous wind on Saturday and enough wind on Sunday to make sailing fun. NOAA had predicted only 6 knots of wind for both days, hmm, 10 knots gusting to 20 was what we happily ended up with on Saturday. The sailing was so good, that no one was sorry to have a late start to Saturday’s social time. We spent a quiet evening in Dividing Creek on the Wye River. Sunday, the winds were lighter but still satisfying. Though, I’m glad I wasn’t at the helm when we were sailing wing-on-wing on Sunday.
We had two fun ECM’s, Marty Ghen and Don Drury and their ‘fair ladies’. Thanks to our charter reservationist, Peggy Slack, who put all together. Learn more here.
