slow going

It appears to be slow going for the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race.  The photo below is from the Virginia (which is not in this year's race) a few years ago as we motored up the Elizabeth River after finishing the race in pre-dawn hours.

This year, well after dawn, most of the fleet has not yet made it to the Potomac River entrance.  A few boats have made it farther south than that.  Those are the high tech schooners, plus the Norfolk Rebel which must be motoring to make it to the Portsmouth waterfront to greet the other boats.

I'll keep an eye on the tracking page and hope to be in Portsmouth when the schooners start to arrive.
