Earlier today, Hans and I firmed up plans for a 2020 Chesapeake Cruise as follows, on the premise that only Hans and I are going in Hans' van and sailing The Nutshell but would welcome capable company of course:
Saturday 23 May: drive as far as we comfortably can towards Crisfield > motel t.b.d.
Sunday 24 May: arrive Somers Cove, Crisfield - the only good place to leave car & trailer - Capt. Tyler's Motel
Monday 25 May: Crisfield to Smith > stay at a B&B?
Tuesday 26 May: Smith > Tangier > stay at Bayview Inn or Chesapeake House
Wed 27 May: Tangier to Onancock> > haul-out: arrangements to be made with Capt. Tylerís Donna? for van-trailer delivery from Crisfield Marina to Nancock > head home via Chincoteague?, Capt. Tyler's

Weather permitting, our itinerary will be as follows:
Excellent launch ramps across from the Marina
Captain Tyler's Crabhouse
Sun 24 May 2020:Mon. 25 May:
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.
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 (410-968-2220) which is eminently acceptable: clean, very reasonably priced, right near the Marina.
sail to Smith Island Ewell Marina - B&B likely
