NorthEast MD with a sailboat?

I have never been to NorthEast. Can I get in there with 5-1/2 foot draft?
Anyone know how it compares to Havre-de-Grace as far as shoreside attractions?

Re: NorthEast MD with a sailboat?

I've never attempted it with Halcyon because, if the charts are accurate, I can only get in and out at high tide with a 5'3" draft. I've been there on power boats and by car but I don't want to potentially be trapped.

Havre de Grace has a lot of history to explore besides really good ice cream.

Re: NorthEast MD with a sailboat?

I wintered across the river from Northeast, in Charlestown for several years. A winding channel must be followed, but then it opens up to a wider bay.
Havre De Grace has a long, very narrow channel that is shared with tugs and barges. Even though there's no place to sail, it always amazed me the large amount of serious sailboats that dock there. It's a very nice town with a lot of ammenites.

Re: NorthEast MD with a sailboat?

To be clear, we have been to Havre-de-Grace and liked it. We are wondering if going to NorthEast would be worthwhile or would it be better to go back to HdG. Water looks thin at best for NorthEast.

Re: NorthEast MD with a sailboat?

NE is a small water town that got "pretty-fied" for the tourists and big-bux boaters..a smaller vs of what HdG did some (quite a few?) yrs ago.

AFA sailability?
There's quite a bit of water available on the river .IF ya stay away from the far, upper end. I was cautioned to not stray past the last marker going N. Iff'n ya wanna sail up to the Naughty Goose dock? Fuggeddabowdit! Guess it depends on yer "pucker factor" tolerance for water under the keel
When I'm out on the NE River, N.of Carpenter Point, I have between 6 and 9 feet of water. I draw 3'-7" but still mind the charts/depth meter. Sneaking into Cara Cove at less than mid-tide is a bit trickier; but I'm a "chicken" AND a noob ! LOL
I have gotten a bit stuck coming into the dock inside Hance's Point, only because I went past the self-imposed time/tide limit due to having too much fun sailing. THAT'S why I always try to come back in on a rising tide!
*IF* I were ever to attempt the crossing to HdG, I'd be awful cautious, as there's scant water due to the "Flats".
Most of the larger boats up on the River tend to run down to the Bay to find bigger water; coming and going on the tide.

C'mon up and see fer yerself.....but mind the tides
HTH,
Paul
