It’s a beautiful, quiet Sunday morning at St. Mary’s College. I’m sitting on the upper deck of the state-of-the-art boathouse uploading our photos and occasionally looking out over the water to see another boat leave the perfectly protected anchorage to begin the trip back to Annapolis. As a boater, I can’t imagine a nicer setting for a college. Do the kids who go to school here put “kayak” on their back-to-school list?
The conditions for this year’s Governor’s Cup race from Annapolis to St. Mary’s College were absolutely perfect – the participating boats had a long moderate-breeze spinnaker run down the bay, then turned the corner around Point Lookout and beat their way up to the finish.
The day-long post-race party was a huge success as always, making the Gov Cup a fantastic experience for everybody.
