Re: I may try for a solo trip in Sept.
I'll be singlehanding from Bohemia Rive back up to Essington tomorrow. Hopefully the NW wind will allow me to sail most of the way, maybe I'll even keep the jib up in the canal to boost the motor.
If you have to do stuff in the cockpit, do take note that the canal probably has surveillance cameras, so do your business before entering.
I love that bakery in Chesapeake City (Bohemia Cafe), and might be tempted to stop if I'm making good time.
I had hoped to make it to St. Mike's this past week, but the small craft advisories prevented me from going south of Rock Hall, lest I risk not getting back to take my wife to the airport on Sunday. If you head down there, the Miles River Yacht Club looks like a nice place to visit if you want to do club hopping. I had told them I was coming, but had to cancel due to weather. Try to visit when the canoe races are going - I hear that they are something to see.
