Ulladh and Denise,

Lori and I are very interested. We'll definitely be there unless a kid's school commitment makes it totally impossible. And even it that prevents sailing down for the weekend, we'd probably be able to drive down for dinner.

If you're looking to encourage sailing in, then Sept. 4-5 (Labor Day weekend) or Sept. 18-19 have the most favorable tides for those of us who are upriver. You know how it works - every other weekend favors going downstream.

I'd love to use this as a target for our first overnight.

Have either of you stayed in Delaware City before? My friend at work says crime can be a problem there, but not sure whether they've improved in recent years. I have some Boat Show coupons for Crabby Dick's, so maybe we'll ride down and check the area out. Summit North might be another alternative in addition to Chesapeake City.

chef2sail - If it's not too late, we're going to think about driving down for dinner Saturday. I need to take some time to read through your other thread to find out what's involved. That one got in "under my radar" because it's buried so deep in the sub-forums.
