Solomons Island Sports & Outdoors: 7 reviews and 20 photos
In September 2001, we were expecting friends to come up from Deltaville in their boat and we were going to meet them and go up the Chesapeake Bay together. On 9-11 they came over from the eastern shore to our Marina off the Potomac.
We took them to dinner where they could see the TV reports of 9-11, because of course they got no TV reception on their boat in the middle of the bay.
Afterwards we both sailed up the Chesapeake and anchored in Solomon's Island Back Creek (one of many, many Back Creek's in the Bay area) where we waited out a storm. Charlie, our friend, took the first three pictures of our boat, and I took several of his.
Equipment: The area is nice and sheltered, but you still need to set your anchor well. There were 5 or 6 boats there with us, and we were the only ones that did not drag. Photo 4 shows Charlie checking his anchor - he had to pull it and reset it.
We have a 55 lb. SuperMax anchor and 300 feet of chain, and we did not move.
