Chesapeake Bay Cruising

Off to Chesapeake City.
So I know I am late, I know it is July, but hey – we are all busy. Well late in May, Rick organized a great cruise for the Club up to Chesapeake City. Four boats with some 16 participants (and a few pets to boot) cruised from Tidewater to the start of the C&D Canal.

A grueling sail (not) required a few drinks in the cockpit of Woza Moya with some awesome punch supplied by Karen. This was followed by the awesome dinner (sown above).

In all a great weekend – Thanks Rick
Looking forward to the next one! We will send out a mail for those interested in more cruising.

Other Ideas

Sassafras River – Has some good anchorages along the river plus good marinas & restaurants in Georgetown. Recommend Sailing Associates (410-275-8171) or Georgetown Marina (410-648-5112) for a slip. Recommend Skipjack Cove for a mooring but call for water taxi info (410-275-2122). For restaurants in Georgetown try the Kitty Knight House (410-648-5200) or the Granary (410-275-1603). Also Turner Creek is a good anchorage on the Sassafras. (Georgetown is about 3 hours from BaySail).

Still Pond – Quiet anchorage (no facilities) – Voted “Best of the Bay” by Chesapeake Bay Magazine readers last year. Please do NOT go “inside” because of shallow water. This anchorage is not good when wind is strong from the West or Northwest. (Still Pond is about 3 hours from BaySail).

Worton Creek – Worton Creek Marina (410-778-3282) for a slip. You may also anchor here. Good restaurant, Harbor House (410-778-0669) but they do not have a water taxi. Call first to check restaurant days of operation. (Worton Creek is about 4 hours from BaySail).

Fairlee Creek – You can either anchor here or get a slip at Mears Great Oak Landing (410-778-2100) which has a restaurant and tiki bar. Can get a little crowded on weekends in the summer. Please read Cruising Guide for directions on entering Fairlee Creek before you go in. (Fairlee Creek is about 5 hours from BaySail).

Rock Hall – Charming town with marinas, restaurants and shops. Please read Cruising Guide for directions on entering Rock Hall before you go in. For a slip we recommend Rock Hall Landing Marina (410-639-2224) and for dining we suggest Waterman’s Crabhouse (410-639-2261) or P.E. Pruitt’s Restaurant (410-639-7454). (Rockhall is about 6 hours from BaySail).

Baltimore Inner Harbor – Bustling port with marinas, restaurants, shops, and attractions. Inner Harbor East (410-625-1700) is a nice marina near the major attractions. (Inner Harbor is about 9 hours from BaySail).

Annapolis – Capitol of Maryland. Lots of marinas, restaurants, shops. For a slip we recommend Mears Marina Annapolis (410-268-8282) or Yacht Basin Company (410-263-3544) and for a mooring we suggest the Annapolis City Dock (410-263-7973). We do not suggest that you get a slip at Annapolis City Dock because some slips are not in the best shape and it can get very noisy. (Annapolis is about 8 hours from BaySail).

St. Michaels – Quaint town with good restaurants, shops, marinas and Maritime Museum. Recommend St. Michael’s Harbor Marina (410-745-9001). (St. Michael’s is about 12 hours from BaySail)
