Anchor out cruise to the Corrotoman

After a perfect day of sailing up the Rappahannock  (meaning steady winds of 10-15 knots), fifteen sailboats from Stingray Harbor Yacht Club rafted up or anchored for happy hour. Actually happy two hours and lots of sailing stories to share. Plus the last day of his Navy career for one relaxed yacht club member. Thanks for your 28 years of service, Chris!

A few folks had never seen the lovely Corrotoman River or its unique cable ferry at Merry Point. One lucky couple experienced their first night "on the hook." Luckily no feisty winds are supposed to kick up tonight, so Karen and Rick won't lose sleep, worrying about dragging anchor.
