You are right, it is just a long day sail, not the Northwest Passage.
I took my daugher and two friends out for a sunrise sail this morning, not enough wind to go against the current but enough for easy sailing with the current. Sunrise on the river is spectacular.

It's almost always a "motor all the way" type a trip when ever going north or south on the river.

Today was a rare day for us! Nice 10-15 (guessing) winds from the east! we were sailing well deployed and leaning about 15-20 degrees. and there wasn't much weather helm either. I was very pleased with the new used sails for my boat! even got to close haul the main and jib a few times! It was hot though.. sweltering again like it's been for weeks. This was late in the day. the winds started building about 3 pm

Just bumping the thread.
Out for a sail this morning, slalom cans and nuns (if you can call two cans and a nun a slalom) off Eddystone and Chester.
Out on slack at low and return on the flood. Low 90's F with 5kn breeze, clocked 4.5 kn SOG before the flood increased. Windward return but with the flood.

Ulladh - Sorry about the delayed response. We've been at Lake Wallenpaupack all week, sailing the Phantom plus one afternoon on a friend's Catalina 250.

I really hope to come by boat on Friday, departing about the same time as you. I'll have to confirm that I have a 1st mate, because I'm not ready to single-hand yet. Count on Lori and me for the picnic. There is a chance my youngest son will join us, but that will depend on a whole lot of factors that we will not learn about until he starts school in September.

If the Delaware is in ebb, then the opposite is true.

However, if you have personal observations that contradict this, please let me know, since open source software is known to have a occasional bug.
When I come up Delaware Bay to the Chesapeke, I try to time it so that I get to the C&D a little after the flood ends, so that I'll have a fair current heading west on the canal.
