Wine, both red and white, will be provided during the sail as well as water and cheese and crackers.
Meet for Optional Picnic lunch at noon.
BYOfood and drink and eat on picnic table before we go. Bring something to drink for the sail.
It's summer and time to go SAILING!
Let's sail away the afternoon in the Chesapeake bay on a 37' Yacht.
This place is only an hour away and easy to find on this side of the bay bridge (495 to 50 to 665 to Solomon's road and you are there!)!
Like good sailors, we'll drink as we cruise around the bay observing the beautiful scenery; waters of the bay, birds, beach, fish....
The trip only includes the sailing, so bring your favorite beer or white wine and something to munch on like potato chips/ pretzels (homemade? humus, salsas, dips) or cheese and crackers. We'll coordinate these efforts better when we know who is coming.
Don't need to bring much of anything because it is after lunch (maybe a picnic on the table by the docks?) and before our wonderful dinner. I will be there early having a sandwich or something on the picnic table by the docks around noon.
I will try to get an equal number of men and women (at least I'm hiring a Captain who is a man...I hope. The one above is not the guy, but I can dream can't I?)
Did I spot a MAN on that boat?
Below is an example of the interior or 'quarters' of the yacht, but they are all different.
So, if we get a blue one or one that looks different, please don't ask me why.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY OR BE LEFT BEHIND.
Shoes are important!
DO NOT WEAR slick bottomed shoes, black/dark bottom/sides or high heels or even regular shoes, because they will not allow you on the boat. They make scuff marks that are hard to remove and it is dangerous for you to walk around, you will slip off the boat! It goes sideways a lot (>45' angle).
WEAR SNEAKERS/TENNIS SHOES!
What not to bring if you want to go!: Your dog, child, mother-in-law or cigarettes. LOL
No smoking is allowed on the boat (wear a patch or chew Nicorette gum).
What to wear: Comfortable loose clothing (shorts & T-shirt; lightweight clothes... Windbreaker?), hat, sunglasses and sneakers or rubber-soled shoes (NOT BLACK).
What to bring: Something hydrating to drink like water/tea (PLASTIC bottles) and/or something dehydrating to drink like beer (CANS only with sleeves) or wine (BOXES or plastic bottles only, Sutter Home brand has little plastic bottles) and use plastic cups.
If we so choose, we can go to a restaurant for some good grub after our voyage.
(I so choose!)
The YellowFin Steak and Fish House
Dinners from $12-$42 (Burgers to Lobsters)
Burgers, salads, fish, crabs, lobster, steak (so the men will come)...yummy!
Food with a view of the bay at sunset.
Let's face it, we're too old to save money. Time to spend it.
Let's sail and eat!

Only applies for hurricanes, thunderstorms or boat failure of some sort (need an engine to get in and out of the dock area).
All Aboard, mates!
