We’ll be back here for sure
See why we loved sailing from Deltaville when we were at Stingray Point? Dymer is one of many such anchorages within range for an overnight.

And to the previous comment its a shame how the dining situation in Deltaville has gone downhill the past 4 to 5 years. There used to be several decent places (Toby's, Captain's Table, Kokomo's, Taylor's, etc). I follow the Deltaville group on Facebook and it seems they are all now closed or or only open sporadically and universally bad. Its a area with incredible potential that seems mostly wasted.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Dinner tonight was a good old American ground NY Strip burger with farm tomatoes, chopped salad , and the last of the potato salad.

Close..thanks for the tip on Urbanna . Last time we visited there we ate in a very eclectic restaurant.

How about J&W seafood in Deltaville? Do you know if the sell steamed crabs to go. The Marinia has a courtesy car so we could pick them up. Donna can pick them at a picnic table in the marina, while I get a lb of jumbo lump picked for me.

We have friends from our old haunts (MYC) who are meeting us in Deltaville Monday. Where’s a good place to eat there? I’ve read the reviews , but would like to hear first hand . Doesn’t have to be fancy. Our friends are a day behind us, currently in Solomon’s. They are continuing on going to Ononcock and Cape Charles on our recommendation, while we turn back north.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Leaving DC tomorrow and heading up and through the C&D Canal and back over to the coast to head north. Any interesting history sights to see along the way (other than Annapolis and Solomons)?

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Fort Delaware State Park, Delaware City, Delaware

After the east end of the C&D go up river a few miles to the entrance to Delaware City DE and the original C&D canal. Stay at the marina or anchor upriver from the C&D north jetty, and take the ferry a short ride in the Delaware River to Pea Patch Island and Fort Delaware. The ferry stops at Fort Delaware then continues to New Jersey and Fort Mott. Across the old C&D canal from Delaware City is Fort Delaware.

If you have time for a longer detour Philadelphia is about 25 miles up river, a 5 hour sail with the current for my 20 ft boat.

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Just got home from a short trip to the boat to adjust some mooring lines. The temp was 92 degrees, very humid, nasty air quality. I didn't accomplish all I wished, but most everything is ready to go sailing next week when the weather cools down a bit.

Also, got to try out my ice maker on the boat, and I was able to make enough ice for a Margaretta in just 10 minutes - LOVE IT!

Re: 2018 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Neat place. Some of the best white perch and croaker fishing in Chesapeake Bay could be found near the mouth of the river, but that was many years ago.

enjoy the scenery.

Sorry, I was in Charleston this weekend and didn't have regular access to wifi.

We referred to J&W as "the gourmet bait shop". They have an awesome shrimp salad we used to get nearly every trip down. They will do steamed crabs but we never did that.

I can't give recent first hand info on dining in Deltaville but from what I gather from Facebook, Urbanna would be your best bet.

E joyed our first day in Deltaville. Nice sail on the Rapppahanock. Docked at Doziers Regatta.firt class place. $1.65/ ft. We're see rating through the mini heat wave. Decided eating on the boat is what we will do. Antique show in the town for Donna tomorrow.

St Micheals on Miles River or better yet go up Choptank...Broad Creek.....San Domingo Creek. Anchor off Dick Chaneys or Donald Rumsfields house and dinghy into backdoor of town. neat museum and town. Better than Solomons. More historic as well. Try Avas ...good brick oven pizza and Italian food

Play the currents on Delaware or you go backwards. We stage behind Reedy Island and anchor taking off 1.5 hours before CURRENT switches. Boring motor day swatting NJ state bird...aka greenhead fly. They fight till they die.

If less than 51 ft mast you can take 2 hour shortcut through Cape May Canal. Anchorage is off the CG station.
