I am at the Maryland Yacht Club on Rock Creek on the Patapsco. It is a first class facility with 5 minute acess to the deep water of the Patapso and 1/2 hour sailing time before you are out on the Bay.

It is worth the extra 20 minute ride from Middle River as you will spend more than that to get out to sailing in the Bay and also have to deal with a plethora of powerboaters. Also the Navy Warthogs (wing stationed at Martain Airport) have been known to dump fuel leaving a small film on boats before they land at the airport which is adjacent to Middle River, Dont get me wrong its a nice place and one of our summer destinatuion. It is closer for us to keep out boat there, but we opted for the MYC>

If you need more infor feel free to PM me.

I'm not, but raced with the Rock Creek Racing club for many years and enjoyed many a post-race cookout at Oak Harbor where I met the owners who are fine folks.

I grew up in Newark, DE and spent most of my youth on the Sassafras, so I'm a little disappointed it didn't get more mentions. There are a plethora of facilities in Georgetown. My marina intel is a bit dated, but the river is arguably one of the most scenic on the bay. If you want to spend your nights in Baltimore or Annapolis, then you'd probably want to look further south, but a night on the hook in Turner's Creek is pretty magical.

Sassafras

The Sassafras is lovely and there are complete facilities up river. I just have to knock it for traffic. Nonstop big powerboat action on the weekends. There are 100's of slips in those marinas and the river is fairly narrow for much of it's length. It's almost 8 Nm from Georgetown to the mouth of the river. A 36 footer might not be bothered as much as I am by the distance and the chop.
