Needless to say, we were rocked a number of times. Not as bad as the Tangier run, but unnecessary.
This stop, close to the Chesapeake/Delaware Canal, is largely to prep for the next few days of travel, whenever the weather lets us get to them. From here we have some open waters before we get to the Hudson; the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic. Tides will be an issue we need to pay attention to. Working with them, you can get an extra 4 knots of speed, against, of course, you'll go 4 knots slower. That can make for a long day.
|Cloudy, but placid waters. Good boating day.|
Our next stop is Delaware City, about 23 NM away. From there, it's a straight shot down the Delaware Bay into Cape May.
That also means we'll be leaving yet another state. Gotta say, Maryland has the coolest state flag. Looks so regal, to me.
|See? Ain't that a cool flag?|
