May 29
We went over boat orientation, provisioning, and docking practice.  Our goal was to be in St. Michaelís by 1800.  We sailed off Shaw Bay until 1830. There was a large cruise shio tied at Crab Claw, so we tied both boats to the bulkhead at museum.   

May 30
At 1200 we left St. Michaelís with the wind at 10-15 knots and coming from the southwest.  We motored to Eastern Bay and sailed points of sail for 2.5 hours. We had to round Poplar Island to enter Knapp Narrows.  We anchored at 1700.  

May 31, 2008
We had southwest wind at 15-20 knots.  We left anchorage at 0830 for Annapolis and sailed to the east of Annapolis.  A predicted storm hit at 1330.  We were tied to a mooring until we had a break in the weather.  We moored in a slip for the night.  

June 1
We set a course for Rock Hall with the wind at 10-15 knots and coming from the west.  We pumped out in Annapolis.
