A special raft up on the Chesapeake

We are lucky enough to have good friends that invite us to stay at their dock while we are on the Chesapeake Bay.  Thanks, Chuck and Mary, you are very generous!   They also invite us to great raft-ups with their yacht club.  This year was extra special, loads of fun as always, but on the way to the party our friend Craig asked Jenn to marry him!  This happened on his sailboat (a sexy Sabre) and they intercepted friends and family along the way to spread the good news.

A Tale of Two Sails

Heading up the Chesepeake bay we had variable conditions.  One day it was dead flat calm, the next we had some heavier wind, up to 20 knots, at times.  Here is what it looks like from our point of view.  No, we can't sail on a flat calm day,  but it sure is nice to be out there when the bay is looking so beautiful.  We have had some really great weather heading north this year.  We even got the chance to sail under the  Bay Bridge!
