Re: Delmarva Circumnavigation

Josh, if he doesn't reply soon, send a PM to JamesWilson, too. He's done it twice, I think, and fairly recent. No slight meant against PDQ - he's an invaluable resource here - just getting you other points of view/additional info, too.

We bought our boat from a marina in Delataville, VA. I considered trying to sail her up the coast to NJ, but when I looked at the VA coastline, I wasn't thrilled with the options for overnights. I hadn't considered Chincoteague; it seemed a bad choice from the charts. If Chincoteague or Ocean City are a real possibility, then the trip seems much more do-able. The idea of overnighting in the ocean, when I really don't know what I'm doing, didn't sit well with me.

Please keep updating this thread! The idea of a circumnavigation, even one broken up over the course of several long weekends, seems appealing.
