CT to NC Day 7
Chesapeake City, MD to North Beach, MD
We departed from Chesapeake City today at 0545 at slack tide to enable us to carry as much of the ebb tide as possible out the C&D Canal and down the Chesapeake Bay. We carried a favorable current all the bay to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge where current switched around on us... slowing us a bit but nothing horrible.... still maintained 6.5 knots.
We saw quite a bit of commercial traffic today and a few recreational boaters but still no cruiser heading south... mostly tugs with barges and large ships.
Our destination today was Herrington Harbor South in North Beach, MD... good prices on fuel and just the right distance for the day... we arrived to the marina at approximately 1430 and went straight to the fuel dock and fed SAILS... she was hungry taking on almost 800 gallons of diesel.
We left the fuel dock at approximately 1600 and moved one dock north for our location for the night.
We were securely docked at 1615... Herrington Harbour South Marina. Our position tonight is N38°43.568', W076°32.565'
. We traveled today for 8 hours and 45 minutes covering 62 nautical miles averaging 7.1 knots.
