Since 1978 I have been fortunate to sail wooden boats. In 2006 I set out to find a Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for single-handed expedition sailing. This is the continuing story of how it came to be, our adventures, notes on the maritime world and other things I don't want to forget...

33rd Annual Urbanna Boat Meet

It is still damp along the Chesapeake. It didn't, although, dampen the enthusiasm of those that met up at the Freeport Marina on the Piankatank River in Gloucester County. I joined in on Saturday morning and stayed until Sunday morning. I had considered bringing Annie up from Gwynns but with limited time went alone. Nice people, nice conversation, great food and more time on the water. What's not to like?
