Baltimore Sailabration

I anchored out a bit SW of Ft. McHenry for the airshow on Saturday. Never in my life have I seen so many boats in one area. Very impressive.

Most interesting - the pontoon boat with the sliding board, tiki bar fringe and party lights.

Funniest - the go-fast boats with key-chain ornament size ground tackle that just couldn't set an anchor. Often someone would have mercy and allow them to raft up after watching a dozen attempts to set & reset the anchor.

Most foolish - the go-fast boats, again. When the show was over some of these guys lit 'em up and took off at max speed. It was amazing that no one was hurt.

Prettiest - the Pride of Baltimore sailing back and forth under the Key Bridge under topsail & jib.

Oh, yeah - the airshow was pretty good, too!

The sights were many, lots of navy ships, planes and tall ships. The ship with the sailors in the yardarms had all the crew singing in Spanish as they departed the harbour Sunday evening. What a sight!

Tall Ships heading out

I needed a day out of the office. It was worth it.

Did you notice the varnish-less teak?

Getting there, but that's another thread!
