I’m stopping in St. Michaels for a few days, for a few different reasons. First of all, I love this waterfront town. I have some good friends here. And there are some excellent (and even reasonably priced) restaurants here too. Spending time here is always in the plan for a Bay cruise.
And it is a good place to wait out a storm that is sliding up the coast (though it is possible that the weather will head up east of us, we’ll see). I came in a day early because of the storm. Josh, the dock master at the museum, was kind enough to make room for me.
And lastly, I need to repair my jib. About a week ago I found the leech seam was separating along the stitching. I had some old repair tape on board and taped it up as best I could. Kristen was kind enough to pick up some new, wider and I think better quality tape that I will use to reinforce the seam. This should get me through the next couple weeks of the trip.
I expect to be sailing north Wednesday.
