DIRECTIONS BY WATER: From Point Lookout MD (Chart #12233 Potomac River/Chesapeake Bay) proceed west  about 10 miles to the Yeocomico River Entrance light Fl R4s 18 ft 4M 2  (38-02.44N  076-30.04W). From the Yeocomico River Entrance light proceed (Chart #12285 Potomac River Yeocomico River Inset 4) westward to Fl G 6sec "3" (line up on the large white house with red roof on Horn Point), then to "2". Note the shoal area to the Southeast of "2". Give "2" a slightly wide berth to the Southeast, and you will have no problem.  Continue in the West Yeocomico past 2 red daymarkers (#4 and #6) and past the Port Kinsale Marina to starboard. Continue to where the West Yeocomico stops (at Kinsale) and you must either turn to the port or starboard. Turn to port (starboard takes you to the grain elevator and a marina) and follow the channel into the Hampton Hall Branch. You will see it open up into a small bay, just continue around the bay until you see a point (WITH FLAGPOLE) on your starboard. Give this point a wide berth, and continue to the second boat dock after passing the point where you will see SHEARWATER tied up there anxiously awaiting all her sisters! (Check chartlet on Website for an overall view of the area.)
