Cruise the Bay

Norfolk and return, June 16 - July 1

Over the two week period, 10 CCYC boats sailed south, 7 all the way to Norfolk. We started at the CCYC Summer Stock Raft-up and ended at the CCYC Blue Moon Raft-up, with a whole lot of fun in between.

The flotilla consisted of:

  • John and Betty McElderry, Andiamo
  • Mike and Bev Davis, Ayewash
  • Dan and Martha Bliss, Brunelle
  • Joe and Diane Revak, DELOS
  • Bob Klimek and Lucia Casale, Lucia
  • Philip and Elizabeth Padgett, Mugwhump II
  • Pete and Kathy Bruzik, Pekabu III
  • Gerry and Jeanne Helldorfer, Ragtime
  • Roy Gillim and Lura Wharton, Troubador
  • Dave and Lois Zonderman, Walkabout

Monday, June 18, we head from Dun Cove to Solomons. As Troubador shows, there was no wind and everyone ended up motoring.

Wednesday, June 20, we left Solomons and headed for the Great Wicomoco River. There was plenty of wind so when we reached the river, we anchored separately. Shown here are Ayewash, Ragtime, Walkabout, Delos and Lucia.

In route, Troubador's packing nut failed and they started taking on water. Luckily, Sea Rescue was able to take them in tow in time, with Pekabu as escort. Troubador spent the night in Reedville for repairs.

Friday, June 22, Lucia and Walkabout had to leave the flotilla and head home. The rest of us decided to spend another night at the Tides Inn, but had to move to a different dock with, as it turned out, rather shallow slips. Dan, is it considered running aground if you're trying to get into your slip?

Norfolk Cruise

With everyone set, we had Happy Hour and a dinner cookout.
