Thomas Point Light

....is rockin. I'm headed to Kent Moore. Fall back Queen Anne.
Nikos blasts off:

So we had cold front push through that brought WNW wind to the Chesapeake bay today.
For as long as I've been sailing herein Maryland, I've always driven across to the eastern side of the bay for any wind with west in it. The reason for this is because there are no viable public access venues on the western side of the bay that work on a NW, at least none that I'm aware of. Well today Niko called me and invited me to sail at a friend of his on the eastern side!

Rigging in the backyard:

The wind today was holey, up and down as it often is with western directions.

I could have been on anything from 4.5. to 6.0 on any one reach. I rigged 5.6 on the 91 ltr and had lot of fun. Fabulous water conditions, nice rolling swell over one section of the bay. Jim, thanks having me over and making me feel welcome.

Sandy Point Light off to the right:

I had a lot of fun. I can only imagine how nice this spot is gonna work when we get some real wind! Looking forward to the next cold front to push thru and bring some strong NW wind....

Keep your eyes on the forecast Niko. The weekend is looking great!

On an ancillary note, colder temps are on the doorstep. We heat our Maryland home with a woodstove.
Had two cords of oak delivered today.

Takes me about 3 hours to stack it.

3 hours later:
