The most the current in the Canal will really slow you is 2 knots so you might slow to 6. If you want to wait a little or slow up on the way up it is ok but keep your eye on the weather. I want to get to the Canal ASAP as there is the Reedy Anchorage or even Delaware City if the weather looks snotty. But the flies will vanish
