Apr 23, 2012 - Deltaville with El Rio

Final weeks with "El Rio" in Virginia. Sailing friends, Linda & Wayne Cororran phoned last evening to hear how the sea trials with the "interested" buyers went yesterday. Jean piloted the boat through the narrow & shallow waters of Deltaville, then sailed triumphantly on the Chesapeake. The couple from Washington D.C. were estatic! Thrilled. However, the surveyor has to point out the worn teak decks, the old electrical wiring system etc... When everyone arrived back at land, the mood was somewhat dampened. Since the surveyor gives our...

Oct 13, 2010 - Honoring the Past

We are camping at the Cross Rip in Deltaville, VA, the former home of my friend Scotty Hoye. It seems appropriate to start out our adventure with a visit to the place where it all started for me. In 1974 I first came to the Cross Rip as a Research Assistant with the Marine Biology Program at Mary Washington College. I had the great privilege to meet Dr. Anna Scott Hoye (aka Scotty) who owned and operated the camp. She passed away 6 years ago in her early 90's, but left behind many things for which she will long be remembered, not the least...

Oct 7, 2009 - Occoquan to Deltaville, VA

We leave the yacht club at dawn, actually slightly before, since it was light with the moon, to try to make the mouth of the Potomac River. This will give us a chance of making Norfolk the next day because the waves are forecasted to be too great for us on day 3. It was a nice sunny, calm day, so we were able to make our anchor just as the sun was setting. We played the radio, played a couple of games of Scrabble with Admiral Sue winning again. The fish were feeding like crazy and it was fun watching them jump all over. Many fishermen are...

May 21, 2009 - Doziers Regatta Point Yacht Center Deltaville VA

Followed warship 19 out of Norfolk Harbor. She went to sea. Stargazer went north on the Chesapeake. Once away from the mouth of the Bay the waves diminished and eventually became dead flat. The schools of baitfish on the Bay suface were all over the place. Beautiful days run

May 6, 2009 - Eliz. City, NC to Deltalville, VA

After a great stop in Eliz City where John got to talk politics with a local - he loves doing that for some reason - LOL, we got an early start to make the 0730 bridge opening in order to make the 1100 lock opening on up the Dismal Swamp. We meander along the Pasquotank River and arrive at the lock early, so drop anchor to wait. We had trouble dragging the anchor and never got it set right. We suspect it is because the bottom was dredged to where it is too hard for the anchor to get a hook. It was calm, so it was no big deal. Arriving at...
