Re: Question

Might depend on your speed, but...


Assuming you're starting on the Wicomico River, try Solomons -- any of about 5 good marinas, we usually stay at Zahnisers.


If you're too slow to do that in one leg, try anchoring in Fishing Bay or Fishing Creek, not far from Blackwater Refuge.


Then Annapolis, any of about 10 decent marinas in Spa Creek or Back Creek.


If you're too slow to do that in one leg, try Deale, any of 3-4 good marinas; we usually prefer Herrington Harbor North. Herrington South could be an OK alternative.


Check activecaptain.com for marina info and reviews.

Re: Question

Thanks Chris
Sounds like a run you have made before , this is a first for me do you think it is possible to run from eden md( wicomico river ) to Chesapeake to Annapolis in one shot? If so what kind of time can I expect, 11-12 hrs etc

Re: Question

Can't guess without knowing your ride. Sail or power? And so forth. We make ~20 knots at cruise, so it would only take us a few hours.


BTW, your thread title -- "question" -- probably isn't very helpful, and might not attract enough folks who might have a clue about times...

Re: Question

In that case, and if time permits, I'd suggest doing it in at least two legs. Figure 6 knotds?


Looks like roughly 30 nm from the mouth of the Wicomico to Solomons, then about 48 nm from Solomons to Annapolis.


If you're prepared to anchor out, it might be warm enough yet for a one-nighter... but if not, Solomons makes a good marina stop. If you can't make Solomons to Annapolis is one leg, Deale is about halfway.
