...I would be up for something in November, though only by car, since my boat will be hauled by then. One possibility might be the new Riverwinds Restaurant in New Jersey - it would give us a chance to scout out their cove for a possible anchorage rendezvous next year on the Delaware:
Fine Dining - ..::The River Winds Restaurant::..
We got in an unexpected sail today. With one forecast showing 35 mph gusts, I woke up assuming we would be landlocked. We headed down to the boat expecting things to be more than we'd want to handle, but found a pleasantly gentle breeze. So we grabbed hoagies at Wawa and headed out.
I finally got up the nerve to pull into the cove at Riverwinds. It might be a nice point for a Delaware River rendezvous. Colin and Denise - what are your drafts again? We went in at about MLLW+3', and found a minimum of about 8 feet at the entrance. So it might be a little tough for Denise getting in at low tide - hopefully she could time it for more water. Once inside we had about 11-12 feet at our mooring ball. (Note that my transducer is about 1' below the waterline.) It was a nice day, and there were about 4 boats when we entered, and about 12 boats - most of them rafted - when we left. One catch is that there is no marina or dock - you need to dinghy in to use their nice restaurant, beach, and walking paths. There were several people swimming, though I would not do that. It's an easy 1 hour sail from Essington, and could be easily reached from Bristol in a day. A bunch of powerboaters in my marina head over there for overnight anchorages.
