Today we hauled our anchor, motored through the C&D Canal and then proceeded South on the Delaware Bay.
The C&D Canal connects the northern Chesapeake Bay to the Delaware Bay to allow the passage of both commercial and recreational craft.
The Delaware Bay has significant currents due to tidal action. We got lucky and rode the tide out sometimes pushing greater than 9 knots.
We passed a lot of commercial shipping from all around the world, several light houses, and a nuclear power plant along the way.
We ended up, well after dark, anchoring behind Cape Henlopen in Breakwater Harbor.
