Thanks Ric. I don't see your name on the list. Are you off sailing for the Summer? Pat & Diane have already made that offer (-:

Kent, they now rent paddle boards and kayaks in St. Michaels. They also have a Best Western and bet some kind Amel owner could offer a berth.

Sounds great, Pat and Diane. I think Dawn and I will be there without a boat, as we still want to go South for a few weeks in May if we get the CDrive repaired in time, rather than take Kristy up to the Chessy. We'll look into getting a B & B in St Michaels and bring the paddle boards and/or inflatable kayak as a way to move about on the water...too bad I don't have my Duck Trap Wherry built yet, that would be perfect.
I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone and putting some names, faces, and boats together.
Steady as she goes.

Considering all the possible locations for a rendezvous and the
requirements of adequate anchorage ,scenic surroundings , restaurants , etc. I
have come to the conclusion that St. Michaels best fits the bill. I thought the
weekend of July 11-13 would be far enough out to allow everyone to make plans.
It also allows Aletes to get back from their trip to Maine in June and should
fall within the small window , between Kent resolving his present problems and
his future problems . Here is a suggested itinerary ,subject to changes made by
the group. Everyone tries to arrive by the late afternoon on Friday the 11th or
earlier . We would all anchor just outside the harbor along the SW shoreline .
Saturday about 11:30 - noon , Diane and I would invite everyone aboard for a pot
luck lunch . We have had as many as 20 aboard before for dinner and it worked
fine, we lined the food up on the aft deck buffet style and people sit along the
decks and cockpit. If we have more people we could raft another boat alongside,
although I am not a big fan of rafting. After lunch everybody or anybody who
would like ,could send the day ashore visiting the maritime museum , brewery ,
walk/shop in the beautiful little town. Then around 5 pm. we would gather again
on our boat or another boat for cocktails. We would then about 6:30 pm. dinghy
in to dinner at the Crab Claw restaurant , which can accommodate large
groups. One thing , they do not take credit cards , so have cash, I wonder why.
Then Sunday if the group wanted , we would leave Sunday morning and have a rally
down the Eastern Bay and over to Annapolis , where we would anchor in front of
the Academy . There is always dinghy races and much to watch. We could have
cocktails ,then do whatever people want, dine aboard , ashore whatever. Monday
morning we go our separate ways or maybe some will sail south together ,or stay
longer and enjoy Annapolis. Here is a list of owners to date that expressed
their plans to attend, if you are not on the list ,yet and want to join us
contact me. Aletes - Mike & Lauren , Shenanigans - Pat & Diane , TBD -
Gary & Robin , Bali Hai - Ric , Indecent - Stephanie , Lone Star - Craig
& Jan , Kristy - Kent , TBD - Eric & Viki , Moon Dog - John & Ruth ,
No Boat - Richard , Atman - Velt , Brevis - Sherman , Fiasco - Aras , So right
now it looks like we have 12 boats planning to attend . Diane and I thought if
we had half that many it would a great success and lots of fun. If anyone else
would like to join us , please contact me at sailw32@...
, or if you have comments , so
as to keep the site free. Looking forward to meeting everyone , it should be
Pat & Diane
