Doesn't need to bother with Marina's on the River, Has a whole network of YCs instead.
many don't have deep water but all of them welcome members from other DRYL clubs

Re: Not one nice Marina from Trenton to Essington, Pa

After following the discussion on another thread on taxes on MD, the Delaware River and Bay gets even more attractive.

There is a fragmented Industrial Hertiage Trail ( to be completed eventually) from Trenton to Wilmington along the Delaware River with close to 400 years of European industrial development overlaying 10,000 years of human occupation. The shore line is a history lesson.

If the desire is a bucolic shore line then go upriver from the Tacony Bridge or down river from Marcus Hook, and if you just want to be alone go to the bay below the Cohansey.

For all the Chesapeake sailors when you have light or no breeze in the summer we have fairly reliable wind down river from Marcus Hook, and steady wind in the bay below the Cohansey.

Fluky and gusty up river from Commodore Barry but very predictable shore line breezes when the temperature starts nudging 100 deg F

Not the best video, test flight of a chinook at the Boeing plant down river from Philadelphia airport. Industrial can be entertaining.

I'll tell you an interesting Delaware River story. Whenever there is a northerly breeze and we're off the Eddystone shore, we smell this delicious chocolate smell. Have you noticed it? I would always think, "OMG, some factory is spewing out some hazardous chemical that smells like chocolate."

Then several weeks ago this article alleviated my fears. I can breathe easy, so long as I stay away from Paulsboro when there's a southerly breeze. I hope the chocolate factory is back online by the time we splash.

I've found the evening breezes to be very steady all summer long, even above the bridge. They seem to be particularly good on days that go well into the 90's. Heading out around 5 or 6 pm almost always makes for a pleasant evening sail down to the bridge and back. Weeknight sails after work would be impossible if I had to drive 1-2 hours each way.

Small price to pay for a few weeks in the summer for the wonderfull sailing from March through December. We love the ability to take a trip for a weekend and anchor somewere nice up a small creek or river. We also like the ability to raft up with others.
So many places to visit on the Chessie with a close distance, but at the same timne you feel you got away from the crowds.

Hey when the winds stop blowing on the Chessie do like we do...head up to Long Island and New England for 3 weeks..

Dave

Rick, I can appreciate what you say about having it close by. We are 45 minurtes from our boat and go for evening sails after work occasioonally
