Ghost fleet is down by one

We saw this relic of war being towed to salvage yesterday down the James River. But 15 ships remain in our local reserve fleet.

Stingray Harbor Yacht Club's summer cruise

Thank you, wind gods! It seems too good to be true, but the winds have been in our favor for three days. It looks promising for the next week too. First, we sailed all the way to Cape Charles on Saturday, with a few of our members (and their grandchildren) turning green due to wind gusts of 25 knots. We even got a special tour on Delaware's tall ship, Kalmar Nyckel. Then we sailed to Portsmouth yesterday. Captain Pete was especially thrilled to spend Father's Day on the Chesapeake.
