A Whole Lot - Just Right -Who Cares
That just about sums up The Philadelphia Sailing Club's Memorial Day weekend sail.
On Saturday morning 30 knot winds were pushing the water out of Rock Hall where we chartered with Haven Charters. These conditions caused us to leave Rock Hall by 9:30, a practically unheard of hour for our club. The winds and waves were rocking the bay, so our destination was determined by these conditions. We ended up in Broad Creek on the Magothy River quite happily by 3. We lazed and finally learned the 'mystery' of the glass house.
Sunday was the conditions we live for on our beloved bay, 15-25 knots of wind and sunny skies. The sailing was fabulous. We hit 9.8 knot speed over ground and have a photo to prove it! We sailed until 6:00 and spent the night in Rideout Creek.
Monday, the wind had died down to a whimper. But, no one was in any hurry to leave our own little piece of paradise on the Chesapeake. A great breakfast, good conversation, and copious amounts of fresh brewed coffee added to the ambiance. We left our anchorage on the late side and motored by to Rock Hall just in time to turn in our boat.
