Sail to MRYC for the seafood fest

    Sailed to Miles River Yacht Club this past weekend with crew from the SOS club (Pam and Carl), along with about a dozen boats from the Chesapeake Catalina Yacht Club. It was a terrific feed with clams, mussels, shrimp, fresh corn on the cob and baked potatoes plus a whole lobster — all prepared and served by the watermans association – what an incredible meal, and what a lovely location!  We settled in on anchor just on the east side of the club where we found good holding and pleasant views all around.

 
                                                                                                                                                             We made the trip on Friday, a day early, to take advantage of ideal weather and a following wind making it a pleasant trip down the Bay to Bloody Pt    

…..a boost from the incoming tide took us up the Eastern Bay and around to MRYC.

    The sail home was delayed a day by thunderstorms and meant beating against head winds and adverse tide, but at least no storms…….so an uneventful trip.
    All in all, a good sail, great food and terrific crew!

    As a plus to the trip, a good friend arranged for crew spots on one of the log canoes for the races in Oxford – and their boat won! Check out the video at   http://www.spinsheet.com/crazy-canoe-day?a=1&c=1237
