Great Sailing!

We had the best sail of the summer yesterday.....but wait a minute.....it's not summer anymore is it? Well it sure feels like summer.

With not a cloud in the sky, and a warm 20 knot breeze we sailed from Baltimore to West River, just south of Annapolis. The conditions were perfect and, to be honest, I can't remember enjoying a sail more. Maybe it's because I'm well rested, or because we just spent four fabulous days in Baltimore, or maybe it's the great weather, but yesterday I felt the thrill of sailing like I have never felt it before and I can now understand Harley's addiction to this sport.

We are now settled in at the West River Sailing Club and are taking part in the Whitby Brewer Rendezvous. They are expecting fifteen Whitby 42's to show up for the event and so far eight have arrived and even though we arrived in our measly little CS36 they are letting us be part of the group (but talk about being the odd man out!)

We are staying in this area for the next week as the big Annapolis In-water Boat Show is this coming weekend and you know we can't miss that!
