Jib and Jigger
19 October 2009 | Tilghman Island
We sailed all day with the front sail (Jib or Genoa) and the Mizzen sail and with the help of the current we must have averaged 3kts. We are heading to Chop Tank River on the Eastern Shore. As we passed Poplar Island we decided to take a shortcut through Knapps Narrows to the Choptank River. We called the bridge tender on VHF Channel 13 to confirm that we would have enough depth to pass. As we passed under the lift bridge with Tilghman Island to our right, we could see that the waterman's way of life was still thriving. We thought it was beautiful.
