39° 16.719' N 76° 34.945' W 19 Oct 2017 20:01 None None None n Baltimore inner harbor at the Anchorage marina where Amy's friend and husband live aboard. We'll spend several days here catching up, enjoying Baltimore's Canton district's great choce of eateries, and make use of the next door West Marine. Thinking about a day trip to DC via train. We shall see. Good to be here. Shango is doing fine.
39° 28.644' N 75° 56.371' W 18 Oct 2017 12:57 None None None As forecast, the wind stayed light beginning yesterday at noon and we had to motor all day and night to the Chesapeake. We are anchored where we usually do in Veasey Cove right below the mouth of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal in the Chesapeake. We were able to ride favorable tides up the Delaware Bay and through the Canal which made the motoring easier. It was a beautiful night and today is crystal clear and warm as well. All in all a good passage and both of us are glad that this first leg of our trip south is over since it can be cold, blustery and often delayed by adverse winds. We are both in good spirits and will probably celebrate with a good meal and glass or two of wine before catching up with our sleep. Off tomorrow for Baltimore to see a friend of Amy who was her best ever boss.
39° 50.371' N 73° 33.208' W 17 Oct 2017 10:47 None None None Left Ptown bright and early Monday morning to catch the tide at the Cape Cod Canal. Once we were through the Canal and into Buzzards Bay the wind was NW 15-25 as forecast and we were able to sail all day and through the night until Noon today. We are now motoring with minimal wind dead down wind. We're hoping to catch a favorable tide at the mouth of the Delaware Bay at 3:30 am Wednesday morning and ride it up the Bay to the C & D Canal. We shall see. Our boisterous sail was a nice change from this summer.
42° 49.474' N 70° 53.204' W 14 Aug 2017 12:53 None None None Back at Merri Mar in Newburyport after an overnight from Port Clyde. Good wind till mid night then the wind died, Bright moon and stars made for pleasant night. Our mini-cruise to Nova Scotia was a good re-entry for us. Looking forward our trip south in October.
43° 55.501' N 69° 15.764' W 12 Aug 2017 12:45 None None None Port Clyde. Linda Bean has done her best to create her "Perfect Maine." I must admit the general store was an attractive store. Port Clyde despite the influx of tourists is still a pretty harbor.
