    Chesapeake Rendezvous again?

    Anybody interested in doing another rendezvous this year like we did last year? We'd be up for another fun race to a destination (emphasis being on fun). Maybe we could feature another model other than the 38's?
    We had a BLAST with this last year!

    Not just 38's

    What short memories you folks have! We were there too with our E32.

    Depending on the date we maybe able to make it too. Will you be handicapping us during the race because we have a 32?

    Hey Bob,
    Not forgetting... that was why I suggested we emphasize a different model this year. I think a handicap race would be fun, maybe set it up as a pursuit race?

    I'd definitely be up for this also. Need to have at least one vintage boat mixed in with all you modern looking guys

    My vote is for the dates in June. New bottom paint, no barnacles on the prop, etc.

    Escape Plan is in. June dates look good. Any thoughts on location?

    Sounds Fun

    The June dates look good. We missed it last year because we were still on our lower Bay cruise. See you then.

    Sounds like June 21-22 will be our tentative date. Doesn't matter to me where we go. I think last year's event was pretty centrally located and allowed for people from Rock Hall & Baltimore as well as us from down in Solomons. Still not positive we'll be able to make it, but I'm certainly glad to help organize nomatter

    So it sounds like we are all in agreement for the June 21-22 weekend. Thomas Point to Shaw Bay worked pretty well last year. We could make it to Oxford but anchorage is not so hot IMHO. Shaw bay gives us a short enough course that if there is light air we won't be suffering long and if it blows we get there fast and have more time to socialize which is what I think we all want to do anyway. Another thought is Thomas Point to Dobbins Island on the Magothy or a bouy course to finish off the West River with raftup at West River and possible dinner at Pirates Cove? Either way Dobbins, Shaw Bay, or West river offer big anchorages and TP is a good centralized meeting point to start. I can get RC again this year.

    Chris you doing Gov cup or Solomons Race? I am going to try and do Solomons this year as Gov cup was a beast last year and is a logistical nightmare for me. Perhaps we could match race solomons or get some other 38's to join us?

    The Antim is looking for one more spot at Screwpile this year for a podium finish (we ended up 4th last year- nomatter going 16kts) so Sequoia won't be doing the Solomons race. We'll be doing Gov cup- although we're going to be doing it non-spin this year. The cruising kite at 155% just doesn't cut it.

    We're going to be doing some of the double handed stuff on the bay though if we want to do some match racing
