Month-long Sailing Trip: Heading Home
Monday, July 28
|Prior to departing Anchorage Marina in Baltimore|
After taking showers, filling our water tanks, and having coffee, we left Anchorage Marina in Baltimore at noon. It was nice to be moving again. We followed the shipping channel out of the Potapsco River and into the Chesapeake Bay.
|The large topsail schooner was the Pride of Baltimore. It was sailing under |
reduced sail and still must have been doing 10 knots.
|The man on the bowsprit give you a good idea of the size of this sailing vessel.|
|The Sandy Point Shoal Lighthouse is located just north of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. It was |
erected in 1883. Like the Baltimore Light, the structure is now privately owned and is
powered by solar panels.
