Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Done the trip from Annapolis to Solomon’s many times. Never really considered stopping after Herrington . 32 mile shot to Solomons.
I have once thought about Flag Harbor, but looks pretty shallow there. Their website has sailboats at dock, but they are smallLL ones.

Make the run to Solomons. You could get trapped their.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

"We had at least 60 boats in the Turkey Shoot Regatta on the Rappahanock off Carter Creek today. "

Closecall, do you enter?

Looking at results, I read that in Sunday's pursuit race, 54 finished and 34 did not (exceeded time, break down, or just didn't show up?). It was brutal trying to make it to the last mark and like several others we got a TLE. Upwind in faint breezes is def not our strong suit :-}

But hey, we had a great time and got to meet some new folks, so it was def worth it. Of course it's also a good cause, so win-win!

We crewed on Shorebird, a Bombay Clipper. On Sunday we came up to the third mark just as the race timed out.

We had a great time. Except for the lack of wind the weather was great. And like you said, it's for a good cause.

Thursday's weather looks pretty good, at least until about 7 p.m. when there is a 30 percent chance of thundershowers.

You may want to talk with Fred Donivan, one of the owners about the channel before trying to get in. Fred is an old friend of mine and keeps tabs on the channel depths throughout the year. He managed to get it dredged a couple times, but not recently that I know of.

The facility there is fantastic and you will really enjoy the food it the restaurant.

Good luck,

Thanks.
Just to follow up I called the resort/marina. Not sure who I spoke to, but he said they "tell people 5 ft, to be on the safe side". Considering I'll hopefully be coming and going near high tide when it's an extra foot or so I should be ok with a 4 ft draft. I'll report back again if get stuck..

That place is only and 8-10 mile trip from Herrington. Not very far away.

I don’t like to ground my boat. It can stress the keel as we’ll as the keel bolts, course not a concern to you as you are chartering.

What size, type boat are you charting

It's a 30 ft O'day, I believe a 302.

I know it's close, but my 4 year old son is coming so I don't want to be too ambitious. We'll go out sail around a bit. If he does well maybe we'll go somewhere further, if he (or anyone else for that matter..) are having issues this is the "emergency lunch location".

Understand 4 year old keep it simple .

West River is close by also and has anchorage places and Marinas . About same distance away of 12 miles. From there South River and Annapolis around the corner.

Go where the wind is best .
