UPDATE 1600L Friday 30 Sep 2011

This is based on personal observation and that of two others e-mailing their observations to me.

Back Creek: 1 ball still open. Additional boats coming in to anchor. Getting crowded.

Spa Creek: Main field still has about 10 balls open. South anchorage has 15 boats anchored. 3 boats off the Academy wall. Lots of balls still open in St Mary's Cove above the bridge for boats 35' LOA or less. Balls upstream are all full.

Weem's Creek: No report.

NB: Some enforcement of federal no anchoring zone off Naval Academy exists. I have not heard of anyone being asked to move, but Annapolis Harbormaster will no longer provide pump-out services to boats directly off the wall in the federal zone unless they can show mandated approval to anchor from the Naval Academy Superintendent. Watermark water taxi appears to continue to serve those boats.

Opinion: If you come in any time next week don't bother heading up the creeks. Anchor in the South Anchorage and deal with dinghies or water taxis. Bring lots of ones for the taxi.
sail fast and eat well, dave
