FL to CT Day 34
North Beach, MD to Chesapeake City, MD
Awake a little earlier to get an earlier start… destination for the today… Chesapeake City Town Docks… Docks are FREE with Electric $15 per night… we want to get there as early as possible to have a better chance of getting a space on the dock… Underway at 0615.
We did have current in our favor all day… 1/2 knot up to 3 knots in the C&D Canal… this shaved some time off the trip arriving at approximately 1430… sadly though it was not early enough to get a space on the dock… although there appeared to be only one cruising boat… the others were small local recreational boats… being Saturday this dock is very popular with the locals to go to the bar/restaurants in Chesapeake City… we had to go across the C&D Canal to Schaefer’s Canal House Marina… maybe a space will open up tomorrow and we will get a spot.
We were secure at Schaefer’s at approximately 1445 with shore power connected... Our position is N39°31.781', W075°48.766'
. We traveled today for 8.5 hours covering 62.1 nautical miles averaging 7.3 knots.
