We all know what they say about the best laid plans, right? Well, after over two weeks of unseasonable cold, rain, and gloom, the forecast finally called for a day without even the threat of rain. It looked like the best forecast we’ve seen so far since we started sailing our boat. We made plans to do our desperately needed first pump out followed by some casual sailing. The weather, however, had different plans.

The Blue Angels Fly Over and We Join our First Raft-Up
It’s Commissioning Week at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. One of the events, planned as part of the week-long celebration honoring Academy graduates, is a flight demonstration by the Blue Angels over the Severn River.
Having finally finished all of our critical boat work and spring cleaning, the time finally came to take our boat out for the first time this season. In our case, this would also be our very first “shakedown sail”, which we’ve been looking forward to for a while. Unfortunately, the weather had other plans.
