Annapolis South:
In late September and early October each year hundreds of recreational boats both sail and power converge on Annapolis Maryland. This beautiful small city and capital of the state of Maryland is situated on the Chesapeake Bay just 50 miles from Washington DC. Annapolis becomes a mecca for boats from all over the East Coast, Canada, Great Lakes and even Europe.

Even more important than the two boat shows ( International Sail and a Regional Power) that span over two weeks using the same venue, cruises from all over use Annapolis as a staging area before heading south to winter cruising locations in Florida, the Bahamas and Caribbean.Among the attractions are the US Naval Academy, the Maryland State House, and historic Annapolis Museum. 

Listed below are few of Bluewater’s suggestions for your enjoyment, navigation and land needs. For a broader range of navigational products to choose from click here for our free Norfolk to Florida passage planner
