    Default Season Opener Video ~East River, Mathews, Virginia, Chesapeake Bay

    For you folks still digging out of snow banks. Coquinas, Caledonias, Marsh Cat, Melonseed, an Eel. A mix of drone footage with clips ashore and afloat. Really nice way to start the season on an early Spring weekend.

    Sailing on the East River at Mobjack in in Mathews County, off the Chesapeake Bay.

    A few photos. I know others took some good photos, too. Maybe they'll post them here, as well.

    I used Google Earth and Active Captain to find the area. Once Meg and I start snowbirding it, you can expect us from time to time.

    Great pictures, Barry. As usual. And that video, wow! We watched it on our tv, well worth it over the usual iPad or laptop. We’d love to come down for this event someday.

    With age I am becoming more and more convinced that good boating is exploring the junction between land and water, preferably where man has had little impact on the land. A beautiful boat of a natural material just adds to that experience.

    This video proved this point far more eloquently than I ever could

    Thanks for posting
