Fishing Bay YC in Deltaville - at their dock

The smaller of two clubhouses at Fishing Bay YC
The stay at Solomons anchorage by the Holiday Inn was quiet as always. The Holiday Inn dock is still there for $2/night, very convenient. The winds were predicted to be less than 10 kts out of the south and for the most part, the forecast was true. We had 56 Nm to go so we hurried and got going around 8:00 and reached Deltaville by 3:30 pm. It was a smooth ride.

The view to Fishing Bay, several boats are anchored
The Fishing Bay Yacht Club is high class. They've replaced their fixed docks with floating docks using ipe wood, the top of the line choice. The yacht club here has multiple clubhouses, one on the south side facing Fishing Bay and one on the north side facing Jackson Creek, both are beautiful. It's easy to see that sailboats rule here.

Brand new docks, floating with ipe wood, top notch. Look at the height of the pilings!
We took advantage of their reciprocal offer with other recognized yacht clubs for a free dock for one night. You get a free floating dock that comes with electricity and water. We're using the electrical hook up for our air conditioning since it's in the mid 80's here tonight.

We are suckers for a good sunset
In addition to everything else, we are positioned for good sunset photos too! We will move on to Hampton on Friday and rent a car for provisioning for the next leg of our trip south, at least enough to last until Charleston.

Good evening. Echoes is anchored in the Currituck Sound before Coinjock in the western small anchorage. We saw many trees in the water south of North Landing Bridge. Mayfly-like bugs are swarming and we had to retreat to the salon after sunset. R.E. Mayo dock hopefully tomorrow.

Cheers, RickG & Sweet Christine

Rick, let me know if RE Mayo is open. It’s one of our favorite stops. I hope you’ve been there before so you’re not surprised. It’s rather raw. It is not a marina, just a place to tie up and get seafood. Fuel is cheap too. There’s only one 30 amp outlet but then it’s only 0.40/ft for the night.
