Stolen bike recovered with help of APS sticker!

This just in from today’s Annapolis Police beat…APS sticker helps identify and recover stolen bike… APS staffer Aaron’s stolen bike was recovered with a little identification help from his APS sticker! Aaron reports the bike was in good shape aside from a missing milk basket on his rear rack. Aaron also tells us that the APD actually had a stake out in the Harbor House section of Annapolis and had the bike returned within 2 hours. Way to go APD! […]

Tugging That Won’t Make You Go Blind…

As dawn broke here in Eastport on Saturday, November 8th, there was something different in the air. There was a palpable hue of greatness that was finding its ways clear the lingering haze of hangovers, shattered dignity and poor decisions that follow a typical Friday night here on the peninsula. The reason for this, you ask? Well, it was time for the good people of Eastport to renew their rivalry with those uptight, prissy, overdressed, Starbucks-swilling, mouth breathers from across […]

The Annapolis Boat Show Break Down

The Annapolis Boat Show Break Down

Having wrapped up the annual US Sailboat show last night we”re happy to report sore feet and soaring spirits (as evidenced by the double thumbs up from Mike above) are the order of the day today. Yes, we”re glad it”s over but we”re also pleased to share that by all accounts this year”s boat show was a good one. While the days of selling boats and booking delivery dates 8 months out due to factory backlog are probably over for […]

Boat Show

BOAT SHOW!!!

The United States Sailboat Show here in Annapolis is reputed to be the oldest and largest new in-water boat show in the world. I’m guessing that they wouldn’t lie about this, but making wild claims isn’t exactly hard – for instance, James has claimed that girls actually talk to him on more than one occasion. [crickets] Moving on… This is the biggest event of the year for us here at APS. We’re talking about an “all hands on deck” kind […]

Never Forget

Never Forget

We pause to honor the heroism that sprang from the tragedy of that horrible day and thank those among us in uniform who provide protection to our way of life.

Team APS Rocks Thursday Night Racing in Annapolis

It”s organized by J-World and they hold races for J/22s, J/24s and J/80s starting at 6:30 during the summer. Last night Rob and I were supposed to go sailing on a J/22 but the vessel was in need of a little repair work that we just weren”t able to get done in time. In lieu of racing we […]

APS’s Civil War… in Lasers. Part II.

APS’s Civil War… in Lasers. Part II.

Sunday, July 12th (not the 13th — thanks Ellie), 2009 started off as a day of great promise for decent wind and a good day of Laser sailing. James, Aaron and I all made our way down to the Severn Sailing Association at the crack of 9:30am to rig up and take on the second leg of their Summer Laser Series. For those of you who follow the blog with any regularity, the first leg of the series found Team […]
