Lewes is a neat place, the anchorage possibilities are somewhat limited if there's a northerly blow, but I guess you could find a spot inside Roosevelt Inlet it the weather turned nasty. I've spent a few nights fishing near the Ice Breakers and Rock Walls, both of which provide good protection, but it's an easy place to loose an anchor if you get too close to the structures. The skeeters, gnats and greenies can be your worst nightmare if the wind is blowing off the tidal marsh, but that's true throughout most of the mid-Atlantic region. Hopefully, my boat will be ready in time--I really need a break from work and winter. The get-together would also be a real good excuse for me to make the Delmarva Loop again--something I've only done in power boats. I think it would be a neat trip under sail.
