Sailing at the Inn at Perry Cabin

Sailing at the Inn at Perry Cabin

While we were at the Inn at Perry Cabin JD surprised me with a sailing expedition. I’m always loved the idea of sailing, and even attended sailing camp on the Cape when I was younger, so it was the perfect surprise. We set out around 4 when the air wasn’t too hot and the sun was low in the sky.

We sailed around Miles River for a couple hours of peaceful bliss. The Captain was kind enough to teach us all about the boat and offer tips for where we can take sailing lessons in DC. Apparently there are a few sailing clubs that might take us on as deck hands during a race! Crazier things have happened, so fingers crossed!

The last time I was on a sailboat a hurricane was coming in, so the wind on the river was decidedly more peaceful. The Captain even let me steer for a minute. Don’t I look like I know what I’m doing? ; )

It was the perfect addition to our weekend and such a clever way to give a themed gift - cotton is the traditional gift for a second anniversary, and the sails were made of canvas!

If you go to St. Michaels I highly recommend taking some time on the water. There were kayakers, paddle boarders and boaters everywhere.

Do you sail? Any tips for a beginner?
