Re: Planning a trip
- It looks to me that the distance is greater than 80nm, without adding
for side trips into anchorages.
That is, I took waypoints from Piney Pt., on the Potomac (farthest named
point on my charts upriver), to Annapolis.

My guess is: a little, or a lot.
I watch the Lower Bay, mostly, and the graphical weather charts are
helpful to me to see how the winds clock around over a period of days. I
find the wave forecasts helpful, too.
Here is a link to a graphical forecast page I took down just now, for
the area in which you will be operating.
The days will be short, a fact that came back to me earlier this month
while out on the water, and sundown was before 5PM.
Good luck with your plan!!
