Dan Breitenbach 

     ‘Local knowledge has always been a critical requirement for transiting Knapps Narrows. I had long used the Narrows to transit into the Choptank, but three seasons ago, the shoaling forced me around Black Walnut Point. The Hunter Sailing Association Station 1 July 4th Cruise from June 30 – July 4 presented me with an opportunity to challenge the newly dredged channel. I transited twice, once from each the Bay side and the Choptank side.’

The channel is dredged, providing plentiful water, and is newly marked! Click below for more details from Dan Breitenbach regarding the passage. 

Dolphin Tracking App

The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science has developed an app that tracks the dolphins on the Bay! Available for both the iPhone and Android, the app allows users to record dolphin sightings on the bay. 

 

 

 

Boater Safety

     July is a great month for boating. Between the wonderful (albeit hot) weather, the multitude of events, and the kids being out of school, getting out on the water is a great idea this month. However, with the increased activity, July is also the most dangerous month on the water. Always remember to take the time to put on your lifejacket before getting out on the water, and make sure everyone on board knows some boating safety basics.
