Why Charter Local? Annapolis is the Sailing Capital of the U.S.!

The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the U.S., offering so many options to the sailor and boater. From amazing sails under the magnificent Chesapeake Bay Bridge, exploring the many inlets, dropping anchor in a quiet cove, watching the stars at night, or sailing by the famous Thomas Point Lighthouse.  

Not to mention, the many ports you can visit. Starting with Annapolis, you have the U.S. Sailboat Shows in the Spring and Fall, Blue Angels practice and main show during Commissioning week, and the historic treasures of downtown Annapolis to explore. Next is St.Michaels, a short day sail away with plenty to do, including a visit to the Chesapeake Maritime Museum, a tour of the local winery, and shopping. The local hotels on the water offer dockage and free use of the pool for those hot summer days. Oxford, Solomons, and Deale are other quaint little towns that offer a nostalgic feel and are known for their romantic destinations. If you are more into the big city life, Baltimore is close and easily reachable by boat.    … Read More
