|SVAuspicious||The view of the Annapolis Harbor South Anchorage from Eastport Yacht Club is quite good, and I'm there at least once a week to help with the Opti-Tots program. This summer there have been at least three boats anchored there every day and as many as ten. I think recent enforcement of anchoring restrictions off the Naval Academy wall have increased use of the area off EYC and SSA.|

That anchorage near Horn point is very rarely used and has a lot of traffic around it. As Jeff said...I have not ever seen 4-5 foot waves, but I am sure after a while with many boats passing by with no speed restriction, it felt pretty bumbpy where you set your anchor.
Having raced many times on Wednesday nights in Annapolis and also having taken a mooring ball on race nights just to be in the thick of the races. My wife and I have head great fun having a bottle of wine and dinner watching others skill as they tack through the field.
Try Annaplis again its a good place, Go under the Spa Creek Bridge or go to back creek and anchor its a lot quieter than the harbor if thats what you wont or go up a couple more creeks on the Severn.

|SVAuspicious||Please give Annapolis another try and do call the Harbormaster on ch 17 if you there are people not honoring the no-wake zone. We can't hold government accountable if we don't tell them there is a problem.|

I don't know what you mean by the "Southern Anchorage near Horn Point", but there is no limited speed zone outside of the Annapolis Harbor or outside of Back Creek. And in all my years of sailing in and around Annapolis Harbor, I cannot say that I have ever seen 4 to 5 foot wakes even in the channel. Now then, if you happened to be there on a race night boats will sail very close to moored boats, but collisions between raceboats and anchored boats are so rare that they seem to be front page news when they happen and lead to major investigations.

I was not in the mooring field. I was in the southern anchorage near Horn Point. There were 4-5 ft wakes around my boat. My 16 ton boat was bouncing a lot. I did not call the HM office because I decide to leave the anchorage.

I've defintely never seen either Woodwind boat cut through the moorings balls. They've always gone up one fairway or the other when I was there.
There is no question the lower mooring field will be more lively than the typical Chesapeake anchorage, but I've always enjoyed my stays there and like that its among the cheapest places you can visit and have access to some facilites.
