Hampton to Annapolis

Tentative plan is to leave out from the Hamptons at 11pm with the low tide on Fri heading to the Severn River on a 25’ Ericson with 3 people. Any advice other than to stay warm and dry? I am thinking that if all goes well that we should be able to sail nonstop. IF the winds are as predicted out of the NW and then E on Sunday. I am hoping that we should be able to make it in less than 30 hours. Any good hiding holes if we need to anchor on the western shore? Thanks Dan

My advice is that the Maryland crab soup (the red stuff) is best at The Boatyard Bar & Grill. Nice and spicy.

We have added "hot water heater" and "heater" to the TO DO list for the boat so we can also do some winter sailing on the Bay. Looks like you had a good one!
