The Chesapeake Bay is well-known as an outstanding waterway for sailboat cruising

Protected waters, great anchorages...

…gorgeous natural scenery, unique towns and villages, and a forgiving bottom make the Chesapeake an excellent choice for sailors, novice and expert alike. Historic Annapolis, the crown jewel of the Mid-Atlantic, is the best sailing destination on the East Coast, and is the perfect place for you to begin your exploration of the Chesapeake Bay.
