MIKEMCKEE will become famous soon enough
We've had our Irwin 37CC at Regent Point Marina right off the Rappahannock for about 7 years and we find the area to be pretty good of eather a quick day sail or planning a week long sail around the area. There's so many creeks and places to anchor you'll run out of time well before you run out of places to go. We were going to go to Reedville but couldn't by boat so we drove up there just to see what was there, well unless you like nice old house's to look at there's not a whole lot to see or much do. The area around Yankee Point Marina has a bunch of real nice creeks & coves to slip into.
One thing I found useful was the webb site Google Earth. You can take a good look at the various places you might want to go ahead of time. It can also, using Earth Link overlay the bouy's and channel markers right onto the Google Earth spot. If you also have a chart plotter some of them will let you down load your routes onto the Google Earth spot. I find this very useful to print out the picture from Google Earth along with the routes and bouy's already on it for use in the cockpit while underway.

Good Luck,

Mike & Glinda
