Chesapeake Bay Sails

Overview:  We have several Bay sails planned again for this year with Captain Larry aboard "Caribbean Magic", a 34 foot C&C sloop based out of Pasadena, MD.   THe boat is fully equipped with a head, icebox, and Bimini to provide shade from the sun.  Bring your sun block, lunch or snacksand you're ready for a great sail. No experience is necessary!   Captain Larry will share his extensive knowledge.   You can take the helm and help trim the sails, or just sunbathe on the bow if you prefer. Enjoy taking pictures or peering through binoculars to see osprey diving with their sharp talons to grab a fish for peeping chicks back in the nest.  As you set sail out of the Patapsco River onto the Chesapeake Bay, you will see the Francis Scott Key bridge and the buoy marking the location where Key penned the Star Spangled Banner. After a great day of sailing, join the group for dinner at a local restaurant (separate cost).
