Re: Weekend Sail from Annapolis to Baltimore

Hi, I am new to sailing and new to the forum; I apologize in advance if this is not the appropriate thread. I was wondering if someone could offer some advice on a good boat size (22-27) ft, type (swing keel/fixed), etc for sailing in the Chesapeake area? I am not looking to spend too much money but have recently passed the ASA basic keel boat course and am anxious to take this to the next level.

Further, I heard Rock Hall is a good/safe place to keep a boat and would offer many sailing destinations (in all directions). Would a boat (22-27) be large enough to sail in the Chesapeake? Also, would it be sufficient for weekend sailing via live-aboard? Any suggestions as where to sail? destinations? travel times? etc.

Your question would get more visibility in it's own thread, in the general area, or over in the "Destinations>Cheseapeake Bay" area, but you didn't commit a faux pas by putting it here.

I started out with a Coronado 25 and sailed it all over the Bay- Oxford, Annapolis, Solomons and other intermediate destinations. I have a friend who's spent the last two months living aboard a Precision 23, sailing all over the Bay as well.

The bottom line is- If your boat is in good repair, and you don't take stupid chances, and closely monitor the weather, you can go all over the place.
