Maybe a mooring for the second night in Annapolis. Does anyone else have a decent idea for a couple day sail based on the forecast and starting point?

I'm really looking forward to getting out on the water. The V berth is 100% done, and now I'm working on finishing the rest of the interior prep and paint. The deck nonskid is almost completely done too. So close, yet so far! Tomorrow (Tuesday) will be meal planning and last minute boat prep.
Good to see you getting out. Looks like a nice couple of days. Wednesday north winds. Thursday and Friday very light wind.

Here are some options.

South River Aberdeen Creek or Harness Creek the first night. 11-13 miles downwind , then broad reach up the river or

Clements Creek up the Severn with free navy moorings or one of my favorites Hopkins Creek in the Forrest way up the Servern off of Little Round Bay. Same down wind broad reach then close hauled up the Severn. 10 miles to Clements , 13 to Hopkins.

Second night eithe moor in Annapolis Harbor or Anchor in Mill Creek (JeffHs ) or my creek Whitehall Creek both off of Whitehall Bay

Good shakedown cruise.

Last suggestion Rhode River H Bar for the first night and Annapolis the second.

Have fun. Nice days, cool nights.
