Re: Chesapeake at night

In some ways, it's easier sailing at night. All the "clutter" is gone. The important thing, in the Chesapeake especially, is knowing your navigation lights. You absolutely must understand what a tug towing (or pushing) a barge looks like. The cruise ships can be difficult because they are lit up like Christmas trees and it's often hard to pick out running lights from that mess of illumination.
