Magothy River We've chartered two comfortable sloops for a lazy weekend exploration of the Magothy River. Our itinerary includes a traditional Sailing Club raft-up appetizer party and game night. We'll also spend a night at the Magothy Marina, which offers plenty of amenities for a relaxing get-away. Relatively short distances will allow for plenty of sailing or, if the wind is not in our favor, more time at anchor for swimming and socializing.


Our floating homes for the weekend are Intention, a Beneteau 40; and Rum Bob, a Catalina 400. Both have three cabins and two heads and comfortable accommodations both on deck and below.
Boat Blue Prnts

Friday, June 22nd - Crews will make their way to Haven Harbor Marina in Rock Hall, MD using car pools wherever possible. Please remember not to load the boats with your luggage and provisions until your skipper gives approval, as boats must be inspected while empty. Depending on weather, you may plan to arrive early in the day with a bathing suit to enjoy the marina's pool, or explore the area. It is hoped that everyone will arrive by 5 p.m. so that both crews can enjoy dinner at The Harbor Shack at about 7 p.m. Dinner with your crew provides an opportunity to catch up with old friends or make new ones. We are planning on six per boat.

Saturday, June 23rd - We'll depart Rock Hall and sail across the bay and into the Magothy River to anchor and raft-up in Broad Creek (subject to change based on weather). After some swimming and winding down from the day, a traditional Sailing Club appetizer dinner will evolve into a competitive game night including Mexican Train, Cards Against Humanity, and Farkle (other games welcome). There will be prizes for winners and maybe a few other accomplishments. If you haven't played these games, don't worry. There will be plenty of "experts" to teach you.

Marina Sunday, June 24th - Breaking up the raft we'll head out into the river, or even back out into the bay, for a day of sailing. If the wind does not favor us we can putter upstream to look at the beautiful rural shore lined with estates and horse farms. In the afternoon we'll return up the river to the Magothy Marina where we'll take slips for the night. The marina has a salt water swimming pool, barbeque facilities, and individual showers and heads. Restaurants are a taxi ride away. At the pre-trip meeting we'll decide whether to have a joint barbeque on shore or make other dinner arrangements.

Monday, June 25th - There's no rush, but eventually we'll depart the marina and make our final sail down the Magothy. We'll cross the Bay back to Rock Hall where we'll take care of the usual end-of-trip business at the fuel dock before returning the boats to their slips at Haven Marina. Pool
