Finally last weekend had sometime to go sailing- or here on the Chesapeake a nice weekend of motoring. Robbin and I took our good friend Cassie out for s nice motor up the Chester River to Reed Creek, where we anchored over night.

Had a nice meal, good wine and lots of tales.. and plans for the future.

Motoring along- Robbin enjoying the view from the bowsprit.

Underway - Part3
10/05/2011, NJ-MD

Had a mooring for the night in Atlantic Highlands, great fun meal at "On the Dock" restaurant. Left 5 AM heading down the coast of NJ

Did a little bit of motor sailing but mostly a windless day.

But we did have some strange weather and clouds, managed to miss most of the rain.. go figure!

Got to Cape May around 9ish- what a great run down the coast- probably the fastest time I ever did it. Did a steady 6.3 knots at 1600RPM - have to thank David for put on a nice 3 bladed prop.
Photobucket

Left Cape May the next morning Sunday the 11th of September at 7- for a motor trip up the bay and river with a nice current run all the way. Never saw any wind the past couple of days.

Sunday night anchored on the Sassfrass river right behind Ordinary Point, had a beautiful full moon guiding me in.
