I have re-thought majorly as follows, on the premise that Annelies, Hans and I are going in Hans' van and sailing The Nuts Hell:

 

Saturday 25 May: go as far as we can towards Crisfield
Sunday 26 May: arrive Somers Cove, Crisfield - the only good place to leave car & trailer

Monday 27 May: Crisfield to Tangier > stay at Bayview Inn or Chesapeake House

Tuesday 28 May: Tangier to Onancock > reservation for Hans and Al at the Charlotte Hotel 757- 787-7400 (see below also) > reserve slip(s) at Onancock Wharf Harbor (757-787-7911 winter hours Tues, Thurs 9AM to 3PM)

Wed 29 May: Nancock to Tangier (via Watts?) or if winds permit to Smith? - book Bayview Inn?

Thu 30 May: home to Crisfield

Fri 31 May: start drive home

 

Cheers,

arrive around noon at the Somers Cove launch ramp across the Cove from the Somers Cove Marina > boat set-up and Marina check-in > group crab dinner at Captain Tyler's Crabhouse.

Accommodations:
Sleep aboard at marina, or follow the luxury model: Hans and I plan to return once more to our beloved Paddlewheel Motel aka Capt. Tyler's  (
