At 09:30 this morning I should have been just setting of on the Delmarva circumnavigation. Unfortunately we had to evacuate our home yesterday due to flooding from both the Susquehanna River and surrounding streams/creeks.
Maybe next year!!!
Here are some pictures during the morning hours of yesterday along with a video:
I made Carina ready for the approaching Irene this afternoon. Doubled all lines, added an additional spring line, removed all canvas and stowed all items that could come loose. Hopefully she rides the storm out with no issue.
I have gotten the opportunity to participate in a circumnavigation of the DELMARVA Peninsula as a crew member on a 35' Beneteau. Scheduled to meet with the rest of the crew and skipper on Sunday August 21st for a meet and greet along with some preliminary sailing exercises. Barring any unforeseen issues, the cruise should start on September 9th through the 16th. We will be leaving out of Selby on the Bay. The overall trip is about 400 nautical miles +/- and once in the ocean we will be going non stop until we enter the Bay once more.
Looking forward to the adventure and will post how it went along with pictures after we get back.
Made the move today from Tidewater in Havre de Grace to Maryland Marina on Frog Mortar Creek (Middle River area), about 30 nautical miles. Left Tidewater about 09:00 and arrived at Frog Mortar Creek around 14:30. The water was mostly flat and winds were light to moderate. Out in the middle of the bay with moderate winds and temperature in the mid to high fifties it was a bit brisk, but made it without incident. She (Carina) is now safely resting in her new home.
Looking forward to a new sailing season and trips to Annapolis and Baltimore Inner Harbor and many other areas in the mid bay area.
