Oct 6, Wednesday
After introductions, the students became familiar with the vessel & the
course agenda. We evaluated the weather, discussed navigation and assignments.
An inventory of galley supplies was completed before purchasing the provisions
necessary for the cruise menu plan. After checking out the ship, we left the
dock with Ted at the helm and Walt navigating. We proceeded to Dobbins Island,
where we spent the first night at anchor.
Oct 7, Thursday
Roger was our navigator as we traveled to St. Michaels. On arrival, Walt docked HALIMEDA
safely at the Maritime Museum. A fine dinner ashore was our reward for a good
day on the Chesapeake.
Oct 8, Friday
We pumped out in the morning before traveling North up the Miles River and
Eastern Bay through Kent Narrows, with Ted navigating our passage, where we
experienced a bridge opening. Continuing our course up the Chester then Corsica
River, where we anchored for the night. A
perfect spot for the students to take their ASA 104 test, which everyone passed!
Oct 9, Saturday
With Roger at the helm, we pulled anchor & sailed down the Corsica and
Chester Rivers and were once again in the Chesapeake Bay. Sailing to the
Patapsco River we entered Baltimore and tied up at the Inner Harbor Marina. A
great dinner ashore was a perfect way to celebrate our success.
Oct 10, Sunday
Ted was at the helm as we left the slip and proceeded down the Patapsco River.
It was a perfect day to sail the Chesapeake as we traveled to Haven Harbor in
Rock Hall, where we refueled, filled with water and pumped out. Bill expertly
docked HALIMEDA at Spring Cove and we began to clean the ship.
Certificates were awarded and a satisfied crew was home bound on land again.
