Re: Motoring from Newport, RI to Annapolis, MD - trip planning

I am waiting for the tide to rise here so that I can make it to fuel dock, and looking at tomorrow's planning. If I read it correctly, I want to enter the C&D canal heading west at around high tide so that the ebbing flow pushes me through the canal. High tide there tomorrow is 14:58 (call it 3PM) so with about 50nm from Lewes doing 7 knots on average I'd have 7 hours travel which would have me leave the anchorage at 08:00. If I go at 6 knots then I'd leave at 07:00. Since I'm up early anyway I'll leave a bit earlier and adjust my speed accordingly.
