Blue Turtle Cruising

Sailing to America’s Sailing Capital, Annapolis, MD

After spending 3 weeks at our friend’s dock in Middle River, Maryland, it was time to head south on the Chesapeake. We were thrilled when Tony and Nancy took us up on our offer to sail with us to Annapolis. Since they are power boaters, it was great to show them what sailing is like. We had amazing winds (15-18 knots) most of the way there until they died just before we approached the Bay Bridge. Determined to sail under the bridge, we may have cheated with a nudge from our engine to keep us on course. We did get to sail under the bridge at a screaming 2 knots!

Once we go into Annapolis, we cruised the mooring field hoping to grab a ball but the moorings were all taken. We decided to anchor out for the night and try again in the morning. After a post-sail beverage with our friends, Tony helped Randy put the dinghy in the water and Randy took them to shore. Stay tuned for details on our stay in Annapolis…
