Our overall voyage wound up being from Back Creek in Annapolis, MD, to Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City, NJ. Depending on your preferences, there are a few ways to make the trip, including variations on a theme:
The following table shows our daily runs and where we stopped each night. Distances are from the chart rather than the GPS and are straight-line distances (extra mileage from tacking was ignored).
|Day||Date||Mileage||Where We Stopped|
|1||Sunday, June 17||60 yds||Moored on Back Creek, Annapolis, near Bert Jabin's Yacht Yard|
|2||Monday, June 18||4.3 nm||Anchored in Whitehall Bay, near Annapolis|
|3||Tuesday, June 19||40.9 nm||Anchored in the Elk River, at the head of the bay across from Cabin John Creek (which is just south of the Bohemia River)|

|5||Thursday, June 21||*||Overnight passage, at sea off the New Jersey coast|

When you're planning a trip, it helps to have all the relevant charts at hand. Below, I have a link to a list of all applicable charts for this trip, plus a link to download them from the internet, for free. It's also useful to read about the trip in the Coast Pilots; they describe the various waterways, ports, and anchorages. The Coast Pilots also discuss special navigation regulations that might be unfamiliar to you. I have links to the relevant volumes, below.
I'll tell you about each leg of the trip in the following sections.
