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...

Annie and I are leaving for a fall sail early next Wednesday. Have started to pack gear ... tested  motor this morning, running well. Planning to make it a work/pleasure trip. Need new sketches for studio paintings.

Found a marina in Shady Side, south of Annapolis on the western shore to launch from. Weather is looking pretty good. Steve is heading out of Cambridge on the Eastern Shore this weekend. I'll be watching out for three sails on the horizon. Plan to sail over and attend the Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival in St. Michaels, Maryland on the weekend.

While in Solomons, Maryland on the buyboat cruise a few weeks ago, Vera and I noticed an old photo of John England and me from a small craft meet we attended years ago. See them and many more old friends soon...
