Visiting St Michaels

Had a great weekend sailing to St Michaels, a very old Maryland town about 26 nautical miles south of Annapolis on the Easter Shaw of the Chesapeake bay. We averaged a good 5 knots in 10 to 15 knot winds on the way down, and had to motor on the way back on Saturday.

I went with Giles Howson and an alum from his college Anna, who is on a travel scholarship for 3 months in the US. After arriving in St Michaels, we had great crabs - a Chesapeake speciality.

The only downside was that we tried to fly the spinnaker, and in the process broke the wippet pole.

Will post photos later when I get them.

Am at work for a couple of days then back on vacation until Sep 4th.
