Tons of good anchorages!

Brak,

I sail out of Rock Creek off the Patapsco and get down to the West River quite often. Just look at a chart and see all the possibilities within a day's sail for you. Some ideas:

Going North -- Magothy River (pick a creek, or behind Dobbins Island), Patapsco (Bodkin Creek, Rock Creek), Swan Creek (eastern shore above Rock Hall), even picking up a mooring in Annapolis Harbor, Chester River (pick a creek), South River (again, pick a creek), Rhode River.

Going east -- Wye River, St. Michaels, Miles River.

Going south -- Choptank River, Dun Cove (backside of Tilghman Is.), Oxford, Little Choptank. Solomons is a push but very doable in a day. I have singlehanded from the Rhode to Solomons a couple of times, and have even done it from Annapolis proper.

Will this get you started? Man, it's making me crazy just thinking about it.
