Day 75- Sassafras River, MD

We're in the Chesapeake!  It feels like a new stage of this adventure.  In fact we've traveled over 1000 miles on this journey already, so it's time for a new stage.  We left Cape May early to catch favoring currents in Delaware Bay and the C&D Canal.  Pablo's planning was excellent, we had a 2-3 knot current in our favor for about 12 hours.  The winds picked up late afternoon and were blowing 20 knots on the nose, against the current, making for a bumpy ride.  We were happy to tuck into a calm anchorage in the Sassafras River.  Really looking forward to exploring the Chesapeake.
