Daysail on Whisper

Welcome to a daysail on Whisper!   Since it's Memorial day weekend, I'm thinking of sailing from Rock Creek to the Francis Scott Key Memorial buoy between the Key Bridge and Fort McHenry, as along as the winds cooperate!    This buoy marks the spot where the Star Spangled Banner National Anthem was written.  The marina from which we will be leaving and returning (White Rocks marina) now has a Mike's Crabhouse restaurant where we can have dinner afterward for those who desire to partake.

(This event is for paid members only.)

    Fun day on the water with pleasant crew. The winds were brisk from the NNW at between 15 to 20 mph with a few gusts over 20. Motor-sailed from Rock Creek to the Francis Scott Key Bridge then sailed back on a broad reach with fair winds and following seas... very relaxing return sail. We met Bob in his power boat at the bridge and we all returned to Mike's Crabhouse for a delicious dinner. Very pleasant Memorial Day weekend sail.

    I am so grateful fit CSA and all the very nice, friendly people I have met. A daddy like today on the waters is about as perfect a day as can be.

    Hi All, The weather forecast for this Saturday is for high winds (20 to 30 mph with gusts even higher). In these kinds of winds, it is not only unsafe but very uncomfortable sailing :-( Due to this forecast, I will have to reschedule the sail to Sunday instead of Saturday (same times 11 to 4 PM). The forecast for Sunday is much nicer with sunny skies and milder winds :-) If this affects your plans adversely, please adjust your RSVP on Meetup accordingly. Also, for any of you on the waiting list after people adjust their plans, feel free to sign up for Bob's motor cruise, who has a similar float plan and is also rescheduling to Sunday. Thanks, Hal
