2021: Sailing Season Preview

By Rich

Activity in the boat yards is starting to pick up, and 2021 looks like it’s going to be an exciting season for both Rover and various of her crew racing on other boats! Currently the plan is for Rover to be on the Chesapeake until the Annapolis Yacht Club summer cruise in New England, and very likely she will head south to Fort Lauderdale in the late fall and probably toward the Caribbean for the winter months. In the meantime, various members of the Rover crew plan to race:

  • Thursday nights on a J/22 (Rich [driving] and Lisa [foredeck], first half of the series)
  • Wednesday nights on a mystery boat (see below) (at least Rich, Lisa and Brian, first half of the series)

In addition I am flattered to have been invited to be the second half of a double-handed race team for a number of weekend races this season on the Chesapeake. I’ll wait to get the owner’s permission before making a reveal on these pages, but the reader is invited to use the comments below to pay “Guess That Boat!” using these snapshots of her keel. Hints: her draft is just under 6 feet and her designer is a marquee name in the industry.

  1. All in all – seems like a very fun and promising season (the Rover in Florida especially so!) Oh! And as the the “guess the mystery boat by keel snaps contest”, I will start with —— Oh I know! A Gulfstar 50! No Wait! A Carter….. NM I’ll try again later!
