Friday, October 21st – winter cruise prologue

Osprey Point Marina and Inn at Rock Hall, MD, homeport of Cutter Loose

Forty seven days ago, we arrived in Rock Hall, MD after having completed a summer cruise to Maine.  Tomorrow, we will sail Cutter Loose south in search of sunshine, warmth and perpetual summer.  Our destination is the Florida Keys and the Bahamas.  We will return to our home port of Rock Hall, MD in the spring of 2012. 

Cutter Loose is ready to go.  She is fully provisioned, the mechanicals are serviced and she is squeaky clean.  For the past few days, the weather on the Chesapeake Bay has been unsettled.  Yesterday, gale warnings were posted for the entire Bay.  Today, the weather is moderating, the sun is shining and the winds are backing to the west and northwest.  This should provide a favorable wind angle  for our journey south in the morning.
