Slip lines to motor down the Washington Channel - only to be stopped by DC Harbour Police boat (blue lights flashing)!! We had paid our marina dues (and even registered with the Maryland coast guard)! Safety inspection only - all was well (one would think so given Magic Friday is ocean passage equiped) - still nice to know they are checking. A lot of helicopter activity covering the White House as we motored away from the sights. Reasonable wind saw us with the genoa flying for a good portion of the day - although mutliple tacks due to river bends! Anchored east of Cobb Island at Rock Point.
