Thanks for the suggestion. Since I work in Wilmington, Northeast is even closer for me. I had not previously considered the Northeast river because that part of the Bay looks too shallow north of Turkey Point. But after looking at the chart again, there looks to be a couple miles of sailable water north of Carpenter Point. So you could do short sails in the river itself, or motor the 6 miles down the channel past Turkey Point for a full day and/or weekend, right?
