Yacht Charter in Portsmouth and Norfolk
Portsmouth and Norfolk lie opposite each other just inside the James River at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay. The region is heavily used as a military and commercial shipping hub, with the Naval Station Norfolk, which is actually in Portsmouth, being the largest naval station in the world. Here you will find 75 ships including five aircraft carriers, eight submarines and 22 guided missile destroyers. Despite this, it is still a wonderful base from which to explore the area on yacht charter, with Virginia Beach a short sail away. The towns of Portsmouth and Norfolk are also very near to Chesapeake Bay, America’s largest estuary which offers sailing enthusiasts a wealth of possibilities.
