SOS Brunch

The Singles on Sailboats (SOS) club will be holding a brunch at the Doubletree Inn in Annapolis on Sunday, November 14. It will feature a presentation by Ron Steele, a Chesapeake Bay Pilot. Mr. Steele will discuss many interesting topics surrounding a Bay Pilot’s job: how one becomes a pilot, the training required, responsibilities, Baltimore as a port, fog, small boats, AIS, radar, carry-on pilot GPS, ship docking, boarding on ladder, what a pilot actually does, who the crew are on ships, Annapolis anchorage, women on ships, continuing education, sea stories and more. There will be Q&A session following the talk. If you’ve ever wondered about Bay Pilots, what it takes to maneuver those huge freighters in and out of our harbors, what kind of life they live on the job, what challenges they deal with every day, this is your chance to find out, ‘up close and personal.’ The event is open to the public, and anyone who relishes the unique appeal of the Chesapeake Bay is invited to attend. The brunch begins at 11:00 AM. You may register by phone or email with Jean Judge. Her phone is[masked], email address is [masked]. Unregistered attendees will be accepted at the door, capacity permitting.

    Great turnout considering 65 active SOS members were awol participating in the Australia bareboat charter cruise. Bay Pilots gave an informative and entertaining presentation. Several Meetup members were there, got an excellent opportunity to meet club members, learn more about the club and its benefits. Food was good, spirits high, a good time had by all.
