Wine list was made by an amateur.

My wife's crusted rockfish was small over cooked and thin. Our friends entres like crab imperial ( swimming in a broken mayo sauce),and stuffed shrimp using 6 U-25 with miniature balls of crabmeat were skimpy and average.

No culinary creativity. They must play on the gimmicky placing your name on the menu and the fact their are no eateries within 10 miles

On a scale of 1-10. I give the restaurant a 3.5.

Don't waste you money.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I'm not going to make it around Delmarva this summer. I broke things during Governor's Cup and have spent too much time sorting it out.

I'm south of Pt. Lookout right now and plan on continuing south just to explore.

Go ahead and finish the trip!

You have already completed a difficult part of the trip - the narrow portion of the Bay from Annapolis to Potomac River - approximately 60 n.m. You are only a few days away - you can easily make it out of the Bay by Friday a.m., then Cape May by late Saturday/early Sunday and home by Tuesday. The weather forecast is o.k. for the next 5 days, although you may have some rain.

I have gone from Potomac River to Rappahannock in 8-9 hrs. I went from Urbanna to Cape May in 50 hrs. (subtract unnecessary 15 n.m. from Urbanna to Stingray Pt.) Cape May to Still Pond in 14 hrs. with the current. Still Pond to Annapolis early morning to early afternoon.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I was in Urbana a week ago. Just a heads up, it's maybe impossible to get diesel and ice there. I couldn't believe the marinas didn't have either. If you need such supplies, better to try Carter Creek or the Corrotoman River. Or Deltaville, of course.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I use gasoline. Atomic 4 engine. I think I'm OK for supplies.

I meant that I was a bit north of point lookout, sorry. St. Georges Creek.
30 miles today put me at a cove off Windmill Point.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I'll be at Cape Charles in a couple hours. Wind has died.

Go Old Shoes!

Good meeting you in St. Mary's.

Hope you have a great trip. I'm still thinking maybe to try a Delmarva this year. Some of my Gov Cup crew would be up for it.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Now the worry is that I'll have to motor around. There's very little wind.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

If you have to motor around, you can easily come into the inlet at Ship Shoal, spend the night there, then head north early tomorrow and make it all the way to Chincoteague or maybe Ocean City, MD. Both those inlets, however, can be a little hairy when the tide is rolling. Ship Shoal Inlet is a piece of cake, even when the tide is running hard. However, there are some sand bars directly east and southeast of the inlet that you need to skirt. The approach is from the northeast and well marked.

Good luck,

Gary
