After a failed first attempt on Friday…Saturday’s departure from Baltimore proved more successful. The winds have subsided MUCH from gale force – and it appears we will have a leisurely, no hurry sail south to Annapolis.
Leisurely it is. Highest speeds are 6 knots…and by the time we reached the Chesapeake Bay Bridge…we had slowed to 1.5 knots. This is a notch above floating backwards. The winds have disappeared. We motored to Annapolis harbor and decided to grab a mooring to stimulate the Annapolis economy (and grab showers, water taxi and all that fun stuff).
On shore, I just “HAD” to go for a 4 mile run through the Naval Academy…Jus Say’n!
