I was told by a dealer in Deltaville, VA that Deltaville has the largest concentration of sailboats on the east coast. If you're not familiar with Deltaville, it's not near anywhere. It's about 2 hours outside Richmond, and 3.5-4 hours outside DC and Baltimore. It was almost 6 hours from Philly. I think that speaks to it probably being a pretty darn good place to sail.
I don't really believe that, perhaps the largest percentage of sailboats making up the total boats in Deltaville (i.e. 75% are sailboats).

There is not nearly the number of marinas in Deltaville as there are in Annapolis. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of boats, but not as many as there are in Annapolis and the surrounding areas.
