If winds are west anchor inside just past Worton Creek . Not sure of draft but it's 6 ft for a small stretch. Great wind protection and nice setting lots of hawks and we've spotted bald eagles there and on the outside. Watch the birds line up on the picket fence of the fish traps and fight each other for spots all morningThank for the tip! we'll give Worton creek a try instead.
That's SO AWESOME! You have SAILING FACE! Such a big smile - so glad you got a med that gives you some freedom and the ability to sail with such joy! YAY!!!This is from today - pay no attention to all the fat man behind the wheel - I've gained a ton since the docs put me on prednisone. I feel and look like a blimp, but now I can go several hours without supplemental oxygen, which feels pretty darned good for a change.
You've got that right.Currently at Smith Point , southern side of the Potomac crossing over going north in very begnign conditions. The forecast was for strong southerly winds the next two days gusts to 37 so we decided to cross today even though we wouldn't be beating into it.
We've decided the Potomac has its own weather conditions and the wave action sucks, especially when wind against current it becomes a dishwasher. We may stop at Solomon's or continue to the Choptank which is a good haul from the Rappahanack.
Conditions perfect starting Later on Saturday for T37 trip south down the Bay.
Having purchased our first boat in Deltaville and subsequently sailing in that area for 5 years, I know well what you speak of.snip: We visited mostly new spots, and definitely like the different flavor the southern Bay has to offer.
Slip and marina fees are half what they are in the northern and mid bay. Anchorages are truly rural. Next time down ( maybe in mid September) we go up the Rappahanock further past Urbana. We like to visit Yankee Point Marina,
My favorite anchorage is the mouth of Bench cove about 1/2 mile from the the mouth ofAlmost at Solomon's
We are going to soldier through and get to Boby Owl Cove on Ledenham Creek, Broad Creek , Choptank .
A nice 75 mile trip...lol
It's pretty hot out today.
