Looking forward to meeting everyone at Maggies next weekend! I haven't been down to the bay in a few months but those blowout tides are something to witness. Great Bay isn't the greatest sailing location but my dockage is free(I've crammed my sailboat onto my parents floating dock) so no complaints. There are two bars, Oyster Creek Inn and Motts Creek that you should definitely add to the voyage. Motts is a true biker/booze cruise bar but the creek run is longer and you have to good docking skills as the boats on the weekends are some times 4 deep on the dock. There's a dockhand to help with the chaos. This is our usual go to cruise spot (unless the wind is more westerly then Oyster creek it is) from the house as it's about a 2 beer (45min) sail to Motts, 2 beers there, and one beer home.
