Chesapeake Bay

25 August 2009 | Reedville, VA
Mike
I was up and out of the anchorage at 0620 this morning. While going through Hampton Roads, one of the busiest seaways in the world, I met a nuclear submarine coming in. I, of course, gave him the right-of-way. I would have, even without the Coast Guard broadcasting a warning on the radio that any vessels venturing within 500 yards of the sub would be subject to "use of force." I decided I didn't want to find out exactly what that meant.

I passed though Hampton Roads and entered the Chesapeake Bay. The weather forcast for this part of the Chesapeake was for S/E winds at 3 knots, gusting to 8. Sounds nice doesn't it? I'm sure it would have been. Instead, I found 20 knots of wind out of the NNE, which put it right on my nose. Unfortunately this made for a bumpy and wet ride.

The winds eventually moderated but stayed on my nose all day. I made it to Reedville, VA and tied up at the Reedville Marina. Here's a picture of the sub.....taken from over 500 yards away of course!
