The Rhodes River

Growing weary with the chop by the Naval Academy anchorage, we decided we could deal with the gusty winds for the 11 mile-or so trip to the West River. We thought we might even be able to sail. This novel notion was just a figment of our imaginations.

But, a couple of hours later we took a right turn off the West River and headed into the Rhodes. There is simply nothing here except trees and birds, and Camp Letts, the location of the Seven Seas Gam being held later in the month. Watch it as you round the #7 marker and make your turn toward the Big Island anchorage (perfect for NW protection) as the shoal marked on the chart has grown over time. Give it a wide berth and you will be OK. Also watch out for High Island, which is covered most of the time.

Love it here.
