USA - Maryland - Annapolis
ANNAPOLIS HARBOR, MARYLAND
Two hundred years ago, sailors from every colony gathered in Annapolis, trading tales of the sea. Today, one can still watch a multitude of sailboats slip into the historic harbor. Annapolis is Maryland's state capital, an American sailing capital, and home of the U.S. Naval Academy.
