Just checking in from halfway down the Potomac… we’re generally local and Bay sailors, but I only just discovered this forum on a net-search, so am reading to appreciate the focus, content and general practice…



Cheers…

Make yourself at home - you're in luck as "JeanneP" is buying the drinks this week.

Welcome to the party. Peter's father always said that if he had had to choose only place and he would have to live there year round in, he would have chosen the Chesapeake. A wonderful place.

Pull up a stool, as Lighthouse said they're all on me, and look around our place.

Thanks all; we're near the Bay (sorta) but not on it... on the Potomac where it starts to get wide enough to sail with little extra gymnastics...

Close enough. Amazing how big an expanse of sheltered water the Chesapeake and its tributaries are.

Hi Larry, and hello from the Eastern Side of the Bay....get as much snow as we did last night? Although I live here in St Michaels, I have lived and sailed most of the East Coast, the Gulf, and throughout the Caribbean. Even have some experience on the left coast and down to Mexico. We may be headed out to Bermuda later this year, but will be around the bay area for a while.....no time to go much further for a year or so...

Welcome to our little group of sailors....and though you spend most of your time in the Bay, don't be shy...your contributions here are appreciated! Along with your insights of the Western Shore for those of us with little experience over there. Have heard much and planning on visiting there this coming season...although I know the DC area, and the close areas of the Patomac to there, the shore I have NO experience of.... Your thoughts on great places to visit via sail, for my crew and me, would be most appreciated!
