County zoning does not allow camping on-site.

The room rates are between $95-115/night. About 200 yards from WRSC. Some of them also have roll-aways if you really want to fill them up.

Beyond Priates Cove in Galesville, the next closest lodgings are about 15 mins away in Edgewater, MD. 1 room has been booked already. Cheryl is the point of contact at 410-867-2300. Just let her know that you are racing at West River Sailing Club.

Are you using sail numbers for boat identification, or will you be handing out bow numbers?


I'm boatless.

You'll probably be the only F16 with pink sails so do you really think you need numbers?

Really? We're two weeks out and only 16 boats have registered? We should be in the mid-20's for entrants.

I was in, but now I am out. Someone else will have to "anchor" the fleet.

Is there going to be a WRSC left after Iriene gets all wrapped up?

Biggest issue is flooding from the storm surge. Chesapeake Bay was like a giant bathtub with Isabelle. She came up through western Maryland pushing all of the water up the bay and over to the Eastern Shore. When the pressure released, all of that water came over to the western shore with a high tide and full moon. The water just kept on rising.

Current track has Irene off of the coast. That may actually pull water out of the bay and the wind will push what is left at the the western shore. Winds will be strong but nothing like what the Outer Banks will experience. Still too early to be certain on her exact path. We have a pretty goood "cold" front pushing through today and overnight. Usually, west-to-east cold front will fend off a hurricane but its arrival is too early with Irene to really keep her out in the ocean.

We'll be at the club early Saturday morning to lower masts and drive to higher ground if the forecast dictates.....and I bet I'll see some windsurfers.

Just a lot of smelly sailors. Town of Galesville and a lot of south Anne Arundel county is without power due to downed power lines. No tidal surge as the storm went up coast. Lost some beach at the ramp.

Galesville does not have public water and electricity is needed to run the wells.

No wind today, but probably as much rain as you got this weekend. Jeez, what a downpour!

So what can we expect? Wind? Temperatures? Hostile natives?

Ed has consumed all of the rum as well as all other spirits on hand as defense against the odor of not having a shower since Irene. whistle

Galesville is still without power but should be restored later today or tomorrow. Weather has been clear and calm, so the utility crews been able to work around the clock.
