Norfolk to Annapolis
Best stop-overs: Great Wicomico - just west of Reedville, Smith Creek on Potomac, Solomons Island (best). Your timing will depend on the tidal flow. In good weather you can anchor just about anywhere ON the bay close to shore; but, but, but, night sailing on the Ches. is an extreme PLEASURE when the weather is good - no motorboat chop to spoil light air sailing!!!!
At night, give the mouth of the York, Mobjack and Rappahannock a WIDE clearance due to the many unlit fish traps - keep in water deeper than 25-30 ft to be sure.
