How casual are casual Thursdays?
To start with casual a Thursday can be held during any day of the week. For instance. A person calls and would like to know which day of the week is not booked for a class or family charter, and says what day of the week best suits his or her needs. I in turn send out an email to people who are interested in a casual sail, to try and fill 4 seats of the boat. ( I have a group of people who like to go out sailing as often as possible during the summer.)
We usually meet at Cashman Park and may take either boat out and just have a nice. hopefully relaxing sail. If someone wants to work on navigation or some other skill we can accommodate that, but that won't be our main goal.
If people are interested, we also may meet out at Bear Skin Neck (Rockport). Since I have not been able to enjoy the Sarah Maria as a cruising boat for the last few years I will be out sailing and come in to do classes. That would be my plan any way.
If any one is interested in casual Thursday sailing let me know. The price is $150 per person with package discounts, as well as discounts for people coming as a couple available.
Sailing South on the Bronwyn C
I am now back to Amesbury after my trip south , delivering the Bronwyn C , with Bob Mills.
It was an interesting rest of the trip as we left Elizabeth City, and headed agross Abemarle sound, Then down the Alligator river. We did not hit any bad weather ourselves, however it was the weekend that had all of those tornadoes all around us. During the storms we were anchored in Spooner creek and once we started dragging because of the heavy wind, we tide to an empty dock for the night. The next night we stayed in Top Sail Island, (SurfCity, NC) which was the last night on the boat for me as I had to catch a plane back the next day.

Although everything we do through Captain Edʼs sailing is hands on and practical and we do touch on all aspects of sailing, seamanship, and navigation, it would be wise to take either a coast guard training class or a class through Boatwise before or after taking my class either way it does not matter they, especially boat wise will get all of the class room material out to you in an interesting manner. You will bring this knowledge to the class or understand it better after taking my class.
