What we're about

The purpose of the group is to get people out on the waters of Chesapeake Bay in big sailboats, not small racing sailboats. And we will be SAILING, not CHILLING all the time, so prepare to work a bit. There will be plenty of time to relax/drink/socialize/chill too......We will also plan other outdoor activities, such as WATERSKI'ing/WAKEBOARD'ing/SKURF'ing/TOOB'ing behind powerboats, downhill snow-skiiing in the winter, hiking area parks, Karaoke nights at local bars (once they re-open), pickup basketball games, leisurely bicycle rides, dinner parties and picnics, etc.

These will be pleasure cruises for active and open-minded people who want to meet similar folks. We will split the rental cost of these sailboats.
I have 30+ years of sailing experience, from Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, San Diego Bay, The Pacific Ocean and now the Chesapeake Bay. I moved here last year for work and am looking to make new friends and find people who are both experienced sailors and beginners. I am very easy going and love showing people the ropes as well as learning from other sailors. Sailing is a lifelong learning experience.

I look forward to meeting everyone !! Our inaugural sail is planned for July 4th weekend, 2020....please Governor Hogan and President Trump let us play in the water again together !!!

Sail the Chesapeake Bay-July 4th Weekend

Chart House

$400.00

UPDATE !!! We have added a HALF-DAY sail(9am-2pm) on Thursday, July 1 for a fee of $75. Anyone already RSVP'd or brand new folks can do this

Ok, so we did this last year, so here we go again.

MONEY HAS TO BE IN BY JUNE 1 !! NO REFUNDS
RAIN or SHINE

I have secured a Jeanneau 54', a truly wondrous yacht. Three queen sized staterooms, three full bathrooms, a huge galley & salon, a stern equipped with a sofa and much more will dazzle the passengers for 5 days & 4 nights of bliss.

Unless you are a couple, folks will be required to bunk with a like gendered adult. This seems to be the greatest concern.

Everyone is responsible for bringing their own provisions. Hopefully folks will be inclined to share. I will host at least 2 pre-parties at my home in downtown Annapolis for everyone to meet/greet their fellow sailors. I am a VERY experienced crew/captain on big sailboats, and at least one other of our crew will also be. Everyone that chooses will be able to assist in the operation of the sailboat. There will be a one day Friday sail for 12 hours. Up to 12 people will be allowed on this trip for $125/each. Children are allowed on this daytrip. There will next be a 2.5 day trip from Saturday morning to Monday evening for $400. Up to 8 sailors will make this trip.. No children are allowed on this overnight trip. For those who want full access to the yacht from Thursday afternoon through Monday evening, the fee is $500. All funds are due by June 1, as the charter company expects this. This is a rain or shine event, so bring clothes for all weather conditions. NO REFUNDS will be allowed. Those cancelling after payment must replace themselves with another sailor. We will most likely sail to Rock Hall on Friday. The 3 day trip will be to Solomon's Island and St. Michael's. We may dock in town both nights for dinner, then drop anchor in a nice cove and sleep on the boat.
