There creative publications keep us informed on what’s happening locally in a way that really …

Oh what a beautiful Sunset

Captain's Blog2 Comments

The wind picked up …

Pretty lucky weather we are having here in Maryland. We have had cool, dry conditions for the past 3-4 days and it has been gorgeous. We started the day with a private charter that had enough breeze to get under the Bay Bridge and back… well sort of. The wind died and changed direction a …
