Actually, it is cheaper the further north or south, or east, you are from Rt 50 with the big bargains being south and east.

I sail out of Rock Creek and have never done an overnighter. Can I just drop anchor anywhere I feel safe for the night or is anchoring restricted to marinas?

Chas,

Other than in the middle of a channel (shipping or otherwise) anchor where you want. Do make it out of the way of course. From Rock Creek, go down to the Bodkin and check out some of the small bays there as a place to start. Email me directly if you want to chat about other possible anchorages. Rock Creek is my home base, too (White Rocks Marina.)

The Bay is full of wonderful anchorages. You do not need to go into a marina but you should anchor somewhere that will provide protection should things kick up during the night. I try to find anchorages that have some breeze for ventilation, are not down wind of a marsh in order to minimize mosquitos, and which has some protection from a storm or high wind should it build up. There are places where people routinely anchor with full exposure to the Bay (Whitehall Bay and Fairlee Creek come to mind), but I have also spent some very bumpy nights in that kind of rodestead.

There are a lot of good anchorages that are pretty easy sails from Rock Creek. I am very fond of Greys Inn Creek and the Corsica River both are off of the Chester River. Swan Creek (if you are not too deep) is a nice anchorage that should be easy to get to from Rock Creek as well.

Regards
Jeff

Jeff,

Sorry I missed you. This past weekend, I sailed from Rock Creek to a new marina in Fells Point. But I still intend to overnight it down south on the weekends. Thanks again.

Chas

Sailing north vs south of the Ches. Bay Bridge

I recently read a message that you know a bit about the Mill Creek area. Do you know if any private slips are available for the month of October? I have a friend who is interested in renting before the seasons ends in November. He has to be out of his slip by Oct. 7, 2003. I know of a few private marinas in Mill Creek but do not know the names. Can you help? Thanks ...Hawk
