Life after…

It was a long stretch spanning 6 months and about 4500 miles. South to Key West and home via the AICW was a great adventure. One gets accustomed to extended time managing the boat, and the daily routines. Adjusting to life off-boat has been a bit of a surprise. Now it’s periodic, short sails and the different patterns that come with being mostly anchored ashore. Not better or worse, just different.

Early season sails with Annapolis Sailing Club, Singles on Sailboats and Chesapeake Catalina Yacht Club are offering good times on the water. I stopped short of home on the trip back to meet up with SOS folks at Pirates Cove for their first season sail; took time out to work the Annapolis Boat Show for Passport Yacht; and managed a few day sails before hauling out to sand and paint the bottom mid-May. That was done just in time to be ready for the annual SOS cruise to the DNR camp on the Wye River. The next week I enjoyed a weekend sail with my bride. We had beautiful weather and a nice anchorage in the Rhode River. The end of May offered a short, but fun cruise and on-shore party with other ASC skippers and crew.

Just a few pictures …

June will bring an extended sail with CCYC, and more great times on the water with sailing friends. Looking forward to exploring new places around the Chesapeake Bay, and making more friends along the way.
