Re: Delaware River May 2013

It will be a good short start for the sailing season.

My proposed 50 nm dash to Cohansey requires getting past Pea Patch Island before noon or I will not get to Hancock Harbor before the tide turns to ebb in the Cohansey at 6:00 PM or fight the current up to sunset at 8:00 PM

The Cohansey has two lights at the entrance but no lights until Hancock Harbor with lots of serpentine turns.

Departing Hancock Harbor about 7:30 AM in the ebb current will allow plenty of time to get back up to Delaware City by mid afternoon.

So if wind and weather work out in our favor you could join me on the dash to Cohansey or I will see you at Delaware City.
