|Our last leg….100 miles….Cape May, NJ to Rock Hall MD
Cape May is the point at teh Delaware Bay
Rock Hall, MD is in the Chesapeake Bay, safer area
We are currently running the Delaware Bay from Cape May NJ to the C&D Canal where we will then run down the Chesapeake Bay to our home port of Rock Hall, MD where we will dock. Tonight we will strip the boat of all sails, canvas, dinghy, and tie up with extra dock lines and spring lines. We have booked a room for Sat PM to move off the boat as the winds will be so high that the boat will be rocking and bouncing so much that it could be dangerous, plus during a storm like this, there will come a time, if you are on the boat, that you will NOT be able to get off. That is very dangerous….so we will move off to land. We hope everyone fairs well in this EPIC storm!
