Re: first Sailboat and first sail from Annapolis to Washington NC

Our favorite ports for this route are: Solomons- anchor on the north side of Zanhisers near the Maritime Museum with dinghy access at the Holiday Inn; Tangier Island- with a cheap dock at Milton Park's marina and his tour of the island; Deltaville - on the south side (Jackson Creek) and anchored off the Deltaville Marina; Portsmouth- tied to the dock at the ferry landing at the end of High Street with the evening meal at the Colonial Theater up the street (if the current is unfavorable up the Elizabeth River anchor at Fort Monroe just west of the former army marina); Dismal Swamp route with free stops at Elizabeth's Dock, La Familia Mexican Restaurant, just south of the bridge at deep creek (grocery store), the NC/Va welcome center dock; Elizabeth City- free town dock (unless SE winds are unfavorable); Anchor ca Bear Point just beyond the Alligator River; Dowrey Creek Marina, Mary offers a cuortesy car for groceries & lunch in Belhaven (or many good anchorage spots down the Pungo and up the Pamlico to Little Washington. Have a great trip!
