Our son is getting married in September but as long as the pre-wedding festivities don't interfere, count us in.

I'd be interested but I think that I am too deep draft to get into Rock Hall.

Sounds good to me... would prefer September but doesn't really matter to me.

Maybe consider Swan Creek, more anchorage and marinas, Haven Harbor Marina has a nice room for a gathering. Just a thought.

Re: Rock Hall Sailnet Rendezvous August 2017

Rock Hall is a good location and we are tentatively interested depending on where the sailing season takes us.

Labor Day weekend (9/2 - 9/4) tends to be a busy one in RH so if that's going to be the date, it should be confirmed sooner than later as marinas book up early.

One caveat about Rock Hall is the main harbor has a public dock at which a dinghy can presumably be tied up free of charge but no place to anchor and Swan Creek has lots of places to anchor but no place to tie up a dinghy without paying a steep landing fee to one of the private marinas (I believe now north of $20/day). Maybe one of those marinas would reduce or waive that fee if we had a large enough group?

Re: Rock Hall Sailnet Rendezvous August 2017

I forgot Labor Day weekend is September 2 -3. Not a good weekend, I suspect most folks will have other places to go. Being a foreigner even though I have lived in the US for almost 35 years I tend to still think May 1st is Labor Day.

Revised dates:

August Saturday 26 Sunday 27
or
September Saturday 9 Sunday 10

I prefer last weekend of August but the second weekend of September may be less crowded.

Either way with timing currents in the C&D and Delaware River it is two days to Rock Hall and two days back to Philadelphia for me.

Re: Rock Hall Sailnet Rendezvous August 2017

Sounds fun, we've never done something like this but it sounds like a good time. We could do the last weekend in August, not the one in September; I work on Sundays except in August.

Can someone who knows post information about anchorage in Swan Creek? We've been to Rock Hall but not anchored in Swan Creek.
