We are thrilled to have our adventures on the Chesapeake Bay again in 2023.
Last year we joined the Onancock Sailing Squadron (OSS). We've had a lot of fun with them. They've scheduled weekend sails to different coves along the eastern and western shore. This year there is a trip planned for 2 weeks along the Eastern Shore. We look forward to traveling with the Squadron.
We've also joined the Broad Bay Sailing Association (BBSA) to get experience racing sailboats. They meet and race boats out of Little Creek and Willougby Bay on Wednesdays and Thursdays. They have short distance and long-distance racing on the Bay. We're excited about these extra opportunities. We have never raced before so we're in a new learning curve. We love it! One other thing we did was sign up for the Down the Bay race in May as double handers. In order to sail that way, we had to join another club called Chesapeake Shorthanded Sailing Society (CHESSS). We are going sailing this year like never before!
After 23 years with Neverland, we're getting serious testing her against other boats. We're stoked. :)
We'll do our best to post blogs and video blogs this season of 2023.

We plan to write some notes here about our sail trip and the preparations for it
