    Chesapeake, Maryland - Anyone?

    Haven't forgotten you I keep meaning to get up there but have been trying to focus on sailing in Regattas. Steve from Va and I sailed in the Leukemia Cup Regatta in Alexandria, Va last Saturday. I use the word "sail" loosely since there was next to no wind. I wasn't able to finish but Steve...

    2006 Merrimac Memorial Regatta

    Thanks for the info Thanks for alerting me to the Regatta. It sounds like a lot of fun. I'm trying to see what I can do to attend. I've never raced before and it sounds like a great informal way to get my feet wet ( hopefully not!). My problem is I live in Bethesda, MD and it's a 4+ hour...

    Barnacles on bottom of boat !!

    I need help!! I kept my boat in the water during the Spring and Summer and when I pulled it out to store for the Winter I was astonished to find the bottom of the boat covered with BARNACLES ! I guess that's the price you pay for the convience of not having to launch ever time you want to go...

    Any Chesapeake 14.2 sailor here?

    Dates for Sandy Point Meeting After consulting with my wife ( a non-sailor) and the Calendar let me suggest the weekends of Sept 11-12 or the 25 - 26th. I deliberately avoided the Labor Day weekend. Does either of these dates work for the rest of you ??

    Any Chesapeake 14.2 sailor here?

    WOW - it sounds like we have 4 possible boats - this could turn into a regatta! I haven't launched at Sandy Point my self but I see where the channel leading in and out is narrow. If we were lucky there is quite frequently a Southeastern wind which should be OK for getting in and out of the...

    Any Chesapeake 14.2 sailor here?

    Another Chesapeake Bay Sailor ! It seems our numbers are growing ! That's great now if we could only get together. I sail out of Cape St Clair/Annapolis. I've been sailing my 14.2 since May when I purchased it. Have already had the delightful experience of turtling it. I usually sail alone...

    She flipped and turtled

    I've joined the Turtling Club Will after 2 months of sailing my Capri I finally had the experience of flipping it. Sailing alone can be quite trilling! When I was tacking in a strong wind I forgot to uncleat the main sheet while I was tending to the Jib and when I came about the wind hit the...

    Mod 2 fiberglass cubby and cover

    I don't need the cubby but need a cloth cover. Would be willing to pay for shipping. Question: Did you leave the space under the deck where the cubby use to be empty ?

    Centerboard - problem keeping it down !

    I sailed my Capri 14.2 for the first time on Saturday and had a big problem keeping my centerboard down. The bungee cord that is attached doesn't seem to have much tension in it. I tried tying a knot in it to take up some of the slack but it didn't do much good. The water near the shores of...

    Outboard - what do I need?

    I'll put my two cents worth in for the Honda 2hp motor. I sailed my Capri 14.2 for the first time on Saturday and found the motor was useful in getting me out of a few tight spots - oh those shallow waters on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. I bought the motor for the following reasons: 1...
