Get ready to follow Chesapeake Bay Magazine's resident millenial cruiser as she starts a solo adventure up and down the Bay. She calls herself "The Chesapeake Bae" on social media.

22-year-old Delia Repasky, a recent college graduate from Annapolis, will spend the second half of the summer doing something most local boaters dream of: sailing a borrowed boat with no schedule and no particular destination.

She's taking off on a 1984 27' Catalina cabin cruiser.

Repasky is relatively inexperienced with cruising, and has taken classes through the Annapolis School of Seamanship to prepare for the trip.

Her adventures will be the subject of a YouTube video blog you can see here, in Bay Bulletin. She'll also be posting updates on Instagram. Follow @chesapeakebaymagazine as her journey begins.

Here's a sneak peek of the boat and Delia's final preparations before she takes off.
