Re: New to sailing, new to Chesapeake

Well now you've done it! You moved to a prime sailing area so now you are going to go sailing.
I'd recommend that you and your wife take a basic keel boat course. You can take the course separately or together; for some couples taking the course separately may be better.
If you don't know someone with a sailboat there are several places on the Chessy where you can charter a sailboat. There is an outfit on the South River that is cheaper then the places in Annapolis or Rock Hall.
If you really like unspoiled natural settings then you will love the eastern shore. On my last visit to the Choptank River we saw Bald Eagles and rays. La Trappe creek made a wonderful overnight anchorage.
