7.30 am departure from Baltimore saw us under the Francis Scott Key bridge half an hour later. Key was a famous resident of this area whose notable achievement was writing the lyrics to the anthem Star Spangled Banner.
Our track today takes us through the headwaters of both Chesapeake and Delaware Bays via the C-D Canal which is about 15 miles long at sea level without locks. The canal was amazing, man made but as wide as the Tamar River where I grew up and learnt to sail. Today we moved from Maryland state to Delaware state and are anchored just inside the Salem River on the Eastern Shore of the Delaware River. We bunkered gas(oline) at North Summit Marina, it was cheaper than Maryland but not reflecting the tax free prices we were hoping for!
