I have not heard of anyone being asked to move, but Annapolis Harbormaster will no longer provide pump-out services to boats directly off the wall in the federal zone unless they can show mandated approval to anchor from the Naval Academy Superintendent. I don't know what the Watermark water taxi policy is, but it might be well to call and ask.

I'll check St Mary's Cove later today. I have a client on a ball by Truxton Park and will ask him what the upstream balls look like.

Opinion: If you come in any time next week don't bother heading up the creeks. Anchor in the South Anchorage and deal with dinghies or water taxis. Bring lots of ones for the taxi.

Now thats a report!!!! Thanks so much! If my wife could get off the full day on Thursday, I might just go for it. Being unfamiliar as I am with Annapolis as far as the water goes I guess I'll wimp out and drive down. Both of us have off from Friday onwards, we'll just go sailing then.

Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UPDATE 1600L Friday 30 Sep 2011

This is based on personal observation and that of two others e-mailing their observations to me.

Back Creek: 1 ball still open. Additional boats coming in to anchor. Getting crowded.

Spa Creek: Main field still has about 10 balls open. South anchorage has 15 boats anchored. 3 boats off the Academy wall. Lots of balls still open in St Mary's Cove above the bridge for boats 35' LOA or less. Balls upstream are all full.

Weem's Creek: No report.

NB: Some enforcement of federal no anchoring zone off Naval Academy exists. I have not heard of anyone being asked to move, but Annapolis Harbormaster will no longer provide pump-out services to boats directly off the wall in the federal zone unless they can show mandated approval to anchor from the Naval Academy Superintendent. Watermark water taxi appears to continue to serve those boats.

Opinion: If you come in any time next week don't bother heading up the creeks. Anchor in the South Anchorage and deal with dinghies or water taxis. Bring lots of ones for the taxi.

UPDATE 0930L Wed 5 Oct 2011

This is based on personal observation and contact from Annapolis Harbormaster Patrol 2.

Back Creek: 1 ball still open. Additional boats coming in to anchor. Getting crowded from Eastport Yacht Center past Jabins.

Spa Creek: Main field is full. St Mary's Cove has 6 balls for boat no longer than 35'. Well's Cove has 1 ball open. Truxton Park has 2 balls open. Anchorages are filling up.

Weem's Creek: No report.

NB: Some enforcement of federal no anchoring zone off Naval Academy exists. I have not heard of anyone being asked to move, but Annapolis Harbormaster will no longer provide pump-out services to boats directly off the wall in the federal zone unless they can show mandated approval to anchor from the Naval Academy Superintendent. Watermark water taxi appears to continue to serve those boats.

Opinion: If you come in any time this week don't bother heading up the creeks. Anchor in the South Anchorage and deal with dinghies or water taxis. Bring lots of ones for the taxi.

We had a great day at the show yesterday , but many of the previous vendors were a no show. Maybe a sign of the economy. The usual bling boats were there, Hylas, Shannon, Outbound, beautiful 47Passport. We actually Ike the new 41 Gozzard.

Ran into Mike and his wife and had dinner at Joss with Shawn and Raina. It's terrible when the best restaurant in town like this is a sushi restaurant. It ais ahold one though and the food was very good. Especially like the dessert of fried bananas, red beans vanilla ice cream and honey. Was great catching up with our friends especially.

Have fun at the show today , we are off sailing over to Wye River so there wilbe a mooring ball free in from of Jabins on Back Creek

We went Thursday and met up with our friends that we charter from in Abaco, they are picking up 2 Jaenneaus and sailing them home. We are considering that "boat as a business" thing where you put 25% down, put it in charter for 5 years drawing income and paying off the note and then owning it free and clear. Obviously there must be more to it but it doesn't sound like a bad idea.

As for now we're heading out on our boat to enjoy one of the last 80 degree days of the year.

Coming in to White Rocks marina last night there were more than a dozen boats anchored, more than I've seen on any Summer weekend. Is there something happening or is it everyone getting in on the last of the nice weather?

Is anyone finding any worthwhile show specials for gear this year?

I'd be especially tempted by any great deals on inflatables, Harken furling gear, and good sea boots but even specials on charts and cruising guides can make it worth it to "earn back" the price of admission in savings.

Glad to hear everyone who went had a good time and beautiful weather (though I was really hoping for a little more breeze than the 0-4 knots we've been seeing!).

4arch,

I have found the best deals on inflatables are through Defender during their annual sale. If you're interested in a Harken Furler, call Ken at Oak Harbor Marina (back the creek from MYC). He is a dealer for Harken and they can do the install as well, and they have installed many.
PalmettoSailor and chef2sail like this.
