I’ve put some miles down since my last post.
Saturday afternoon I got underway from Atlantic City. I had arrived there late Thursday night from NY and was waiting for weather to clear to continue.
My timing was perfect. I cruised down the coast in a dying west wind, and got to Cape May at slack tide and calm, and then had a nice run up the Delaware River. I hit the Chesapeake Delaware canal with a favourable current, and kept going… I stopped for lunch in Rock Hall, then continued down to near Annapolis where I anchored about 4:00 pm Sunday and crashed.
Monday was another long day, leaving Annapolis at 0700 and arriving in Norfolk about midnight. Nice run down the Chesapeake with a following breeze.
This morning I was underway early and into the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. I stopped at dusk to anchor here just off the dredged channel.
I feel fortunate to have had the weather window to do this easily. It’s a relief to be south of winter and off the ocean. Should be smooth sailing from here.
It’s about 1,000 miles from here to Miami, with sheltered water all the way. From here on in it’ll be daytime travel mostly. I like this segment.
