I agree; Harness Creek and the whole Rhode River area would be a great starting area. Protected and yet many choices.

This, about a resent trip to Harness Creek:
Sail Delmarva: Harness Creek

With practice, the Bay will be yours next summer. It is largely about picking weather and places. Trailer sailors have so many choices.
