S2's are known to sail well in light winds and Sandpiper proved herself many a summer's day on the Chesapeake Bay. Sailing on the Bay wouldn't be any fun without the occasional "ran aground" story. With the Gunkholers Guide literally as our guide, we tested the muddy bottom more than once in far reaching creeks up and down Maryland's Eastern and Western shores.
In between week-end and week-long cruises on the Chesapeake, we spent time upgrading and caring for Sandpiper. In July 2008, Sandpiper moved on to a new caretaker. Maybe we'll see her again soon out on the bay.
