I did the 'Round Delmarva in 2004 as a shakedown trip with my crew prior to heading offshore to the Caribbean. It's a great first-time-offshore experience.

We did the circuit in the counter-clockwise direction to take advantage of the prevailing southwesterlies on the offshore leg. It was late July, and the winds were light for a good part of the trip, so we exercised the engine more than I would have preferred.

We rounded Cape Henlopen into Delaware Bay at sundown, just at the beginning of the flood tide, and rode it all the way up the Bay, through the C&D Canal, and all the way down to Tolchester Beach! What a ride-it gave us a 1-2kt boost. The tide is something to seriously consider when transiting the Delaware Bay. You wouldn't want that 1-2 kts against you.

The entire trip was 384 nm, and took us 4-1/2 days, including one overnight stop at Solomon's Island.

Hello Bad SantaL I'm sure we've seen each other on the river. What is your boat's name?

I may want to take this trip also. If I can work in the time off. I would be my first offshore in my own boat. I have been getting it prepped to go South on and it/we should be ready for offshore by then.

Brokesailor, glad you're thinking of joining us. The more the merrier. Let me know if you're looking for crew, if so, what kind of boat you have.

All, if there is someone who has an image program that would allow one to take an image of the Peninsula and then draw over it (like photoshop) please let me know. I'd like to show where everyone will be coming and going on the loop so we can keep track if someone were to fall behind. I can prepare something in Autocad format and then PDF it to everyone involved. That will require me to get email address for everyone or I could host the image and post it up on sailnet. Please let me know what the best way to do this is. If I could get some help on a boat list that would great as well. One showing skippers names, boat name, screen name, and boat make and model, possibley sail numbers. It would help visiual recognition and keep in touch via VHF. I can also take care of this, but posting up the required info would help. I may start multiple threads asking for the info above and another for boats looking for crew.

Awesome. I knew someone with more computer sense than I would step up. Thanks!

How do I add my location? Sorry, I'm slow.

You'll need to be logged into Google, then save to My Maps. You'll then see the edit button, add place mark at your location & hit save.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
