CT to GA Day 8
Chesapeake City, MD to Solomons, MD
We left Chesapeake City this morning at 0500... early departure to leave with a favorable current... underway at over 8 knots.
The current was in our favor for a good part of the day... but we lost our boost just below Annapolis, MD.... slowing to 6 to 6.5 knots for the remainder of the day.
Weather supposed to be deteriorating on Sunday so we opted to do two long days down the Chesapeake Bay instead of normal 3 days we normally take... destination Solomons, MD
Still have not seen any other cruisers heading south... we have been solo as far as we know up to this point.
We arrived to Solomons and were securely docked at Calvert Marina at 1815... Our location for night N38°19.936', W076°27.460’
. We traveled today for 16 hours covering 99.5 nautical miles averaging 6.2 knots.
