If the winds off shore are strong, it's also better to be going down wind rather than be bashing to windward.

Moe again

(Have to go, will check with you guys later)

Why would you go to Cape May when Cape Henlopen and Lewes is closer and in a more direct path?

I dont think the stops are carved in stone yet and anything mentioned is just a geographic generalization.

Greetings,
I have a Cape Dory 25 based in Milton, DE. My venue is the Delaware Bay.
Would be interested in exploring the inland route from Rehoboth Bay on South to the Chesapeake; or crewing for an off shore sail with stops in Chincoteague etc. along the way.

Am retired, so can go anytime.

Dick

I've wondered about that also, but was defering to group think.

My assuption was the facilities at Cape May were nicer and perhaps offered more availablity. I've read blogs of folks doing the trip anchoring out in Harbor of Refuge before heading offshore, but don't know about the potential marinas at Lewes/Cape Helopen. My strong preference would be to be in a slip the day before/after the offshore passage, so if we need to go to Cape May to do that, so be it. In playing with SeaClear to entertain myself, I planned the offshore leg between Salt Ponds Marina in Hampton, to Cape May (or reverse). If slips are available at Lewes, it would probably lop about 2 hours or so off the trip.

Its a long winter, and I'll have some empty weekends, so I still plan to drive up and visit Chesapeake City and the Cape Henlopen/Cape May area before launching on this trip. I kind of collect ferry rides anyway and have wanted to take the Lewes Cape May ferry just to add it to the list. That visit will likely firm up my thinking on the need to go to Cape May.

Here is some info on Lewes slips and the City Dock and prices. This is a new facility. They are in the process of adding more space, but I do not know the completion date of this project.

Some more info on Lewes

I also find this link useful when going outside or in the bay to plan current conditions for the trip. SailFlow.com - DE- Delmarva Wind Data

Actually, Lewes would be a good stop along the way. I've been into Cape May a bunch of times, but wouldn't mind trying something new.

Flybyknight:

Nice to have someone else on this side of the Delmarva. Welcome to SailNet. I sent you a PM about your interest in going to the Chincoteague.

Lets plan for the 7th. I'll update the crew meeting post with a time of 1pm if that works for everyone.
