Re: Kent narrows vs. around Kent Island

Traveling to St. Michaels from Rock Hall via the narrows saves you about 17 miles or +/- 3 hours. Sometimes I'd rather spend those 3 hours sailing and other times I'd rather have them to hang out in the town, check out the CBMM, kick back in my cockpit while on the hook, or go exploring in the dinghy. But I do try to avoid the narrows on weekends (especially holidays) and I try to run at slack tide.
