An annual day of fun (and some debauchery) in Chesapeake City, Md.

Every cloud has a silver lining

A commenter in the previous post mentioned the Noreaster Magazine article on Canal Day and the possibility of a 24-hour rule being enforced on boats in the basin. If your boat is occupied, I don't see that happening but you can always check with the town or Coast Guard when you pull in to moor.

Here's a link to the Nor'easter article.

I think the town is trying its best to let the water side of the event maintain its sense of fun and tradition while not letting the land side be inundated with the spillover of the boat owners' friends and hangers-on wandering around peeing on every porch and bush as they make their way to and from the basin and Inn.

Instead of letting a few ignoramuses ruin it for everyone, the town seems to be searching for balance.
