Annapolis' historic Market House opened its doors yesterday for the first time since last month's Tropical Storm Isabel set the food shanty's cheese and ice cream afloat in a 7-foot slush of Severn River surge. "I don't know who's more excited about our opening, our customers or us," said an ebullient Judy Schwartzberg, co-owner of The Big Cheese and Sammy's Downtown Deli. Yesterday, the first day of this weekend's popular sailboat show, was the city's self-imposed deadline for drying out after Isabel's surge left much of the City Dock area - including a life-size bronze statue of author Alex Haley - temporarily underwater.

When Hurricane Isabel slammed into the East Coast last month, organizers of the U.S. sailboat and powerboat shows feared the Annapolis event could be in jeopardy. Despite significant destruction in parts of Annapolis, the city and the boat shows are ready for visitors, said Kathy Wood, president of the shows. "We prepared for the storm, and had no loss of equipment or damage," said Rick Franke, a spokesman for the shows. The show's 240 floating docks and 50 temporary pilings were kept safe on high ground and are now set up in their temporary home in Annapolis harbor.

It's been more than a week since the last of four hurricanes ravaged the Caribbean and Florida, but their effects were still being felt in Annapolis yesterday with the start of the 35th annual United States Sailboat Show at City Dock. Although the fall show attracted about 600 exhibitors, roughly the same number as last year, organizers likened many of the 250 sailboats that arrived this week to unexpected guests. Because of treacherous weather or damage to boats from the storms, many exhibitors found their vessels stranded far out of town and were forced to show different models than planned, said organizer Rick Franke.

Technically, says Rick Franke, an official of the 32nd United States Sailboat Show, most people get it wrong. A yacht is any vessel used for pleasure. So it depends on your point of view - one man's dinghy is another man's pleasure craft. But as Franke leads a guest along the docks that moor scads of the world's state-of-the-art cruisers and racers - bright boats bobbing in the hot October sun - at this weekend's extravaganza in Annapolis, there's little doubt about the nomenclature. That's especially true when he's asked flat-out to show what a million dollars can buy. In that price range, he says, you'll be getting certain amenities.

Sun diamonds sparkled on the waves lapping lightly against the pier. Seagulls squawked overhead. A few canvasback and mallard ducks -- and an anchored blue sailboat -- rode easily on the Back River swells. God was in his heaven, and all was right with the small Baltimore County community that residents call simply "the island."Separated from the rest of the county by North Point State Park, the isolated peninsula named Millers Island has always had a life of its own. Today, longtime residents and a handful of working watermen mix with professionals and young families drawn to the seclusion and spectacular views.

ANNAPOLIS - Four people were rescued yesterday when their 28-foot sailboat capsized shortly after noon in the South River, near Duvall Creek, the U.S. Coast Guard said. Two were rescued by the crew of a private boat, and the other two were pulled from the 63-degree water by members of the Coast Guard in Annapolis, said Petty Officer Scott Winslow. All four, who were wearing life jackets, were in good condition, he said. The sailboat was upside down and had to be towed, Winslow said.
