If you are ,looking for a college town near good sailing, look no further than Annapolis and The Chesapeake Bay. The Bay is an inland sea with over 4,000 miles of shoreline and 30+ rivers all with their gunkholes. It is a sailing paradise. And as colleges go, we have many, US Naval Academy and St Johns in Annapolis; University of MD Baltimore County and Univ MD At Baltimore (Law, Med School, Nursing School), John's Hopkins all in Baltimore; Univ of MD Eastern Shore (Eastern Shore MD; St Mary's College St Marys MD; University of MD College Park (just outside DC), Georgetown, George Washington, Howard University, UDC and American University all in Washington DC. VA has Merry Mount College (Arlington), George Mason (Fairfax). Add to this list scores of Community Colleges and you see the Baltimore/Washington/Annapolis area is rich with institutions of higher learning. The sailing is superb. The Chesapeake Bay is almost 200 NM long and is a rich ecosystem. In addition, the area is rich with culture with major theatre and museums and places to see and do in you non sailing time. And then there is The Annapolis Sailboat Show.
