As far as the eye can see sails. Everywhere you look, and everywhere you see, sailboats. My wife loves the pictures of boats with colorful sails and hulls. Since I am manning the helm, we get lots of pictures she takes of colorful sails and hulls. There are a couple of pictures as well in this collection of the boys. They were having fun. Our goal was the Jamaican restaurant that is just across from Annapolis’ inner harbor, but that was not to be.
The harbormaster informed us as we came around the bend, that there were no places to moor our boat. City dock was closed for the boat show! Oh well, it was still fun to head over to the harbor and see all the sailboats. In a couple of the pictures, you get an idea of how crowded the harbor was and how many sailboats there were. Sailboats are different than power boats, first off if they are under sail, you have to give them a wide berth. If they are under power (sails down), then they are just like power boats.
There were a lot of sailboats yesterday that was under sail so we gave them as wide a berth as we could. Plus there were a lot more boats moored than usual, stretching all the way out into the outer part of the inner harbor. Every single mooring buoy all the way out to the channel was occupied. Plus there were a lot of little boats bouncing around on the water. For me, the joy is being on the water. My first mate agrees with that. It was nice having the boys with us this time, though!
