Greenwich, NJ to Chesapeake City, MD
Rhode Island to Florida - Day 9
Short day planned for today… destination Chesapeake City, MD… due to current we had to get an early start so we set our alarm for 0530 hours… however, we were both up and getting ready to leave before the alarm went off. We departed at approximately 0630 hours and headed out of the Cohansey River toward the Delaware Bay. There was just enough daylight to be able to see the crab trap floats and avoid hitting any of them and there were a lot them to avoid.

It was a calm day with less than one foot waves and absolutely no recreational boat traffic… we only saw commercial crabbers and a couple of ships. In the C&D Canal we had a large ship… car carrier following us all the way to Chesapeake City… it was huge.

We arrived to Chesapeake City at approximately 1200 hours and docked at the city docks which are free dockage and $15 for electric. We were soon joined by two other boats at the docks and the dock was full… believe I saw another 4-5 boats come into the harbor and anchor.

Our location is N39°31.640’, W075°48.669’.

We traveled today for 5 hours and 30 minutes covering 33.8 nautical miles averaging 6.15 knots.
