Christina River

The Christina River is a tributary of the Delaware River 35 miles long, in northern Delaware in the United States flowing through small areas of southeastern Pennsylvania and northeastern Maryland. Near its mouth the river flows past downtown Wilmington, forming the city's harbor for traffic on the Delaware River; the Port of Wilmington, opened in 1923 at the river's mouth, handles international trade. The river rises in southeastern Pennsylvania, in Franklin Township in southern Chester County, flows southeastwardly, passing through the northeastern extremity of Maryland in northeastern Cecil County, into New Castle County in Delaware, where it flows through western and southern areas of the city of Newark and turns northeastwardly, passing the town of Newport and approaching Wilmington from the southwest, it receives White Clay Creek from the west near Newport, Brandywine Creek in Wilmington 2 miles upstream of its mouth. The Christina River and its tributaries drain an area of 565 square miles.

Brandywine Creek, despite being considered a "tributary" of the Christina, drains 58% of this area. White Clay Creek and its tributary, Red Clay Creek, drain a further 28% of the basin. Including Brandywine Creek, 71% of the Christina's basin is in Pennsylvania; the basin's streams supply 100 million gallons of water per day for more than half a million people in the three states, providing 75% of the water supply for New Castle County and more than 40% of the water supply for Chester County, Pennsylvania. The river was named for Queen Christina of Sweden. Fort Christina, the first permanent European settlement in Delaware, was established at the confluence of Brandywine Creek and the Christina River in 1638 as a part of the Swedish colony of New Sweden; the fort was captured by the Dutch in 1655, by the English in 1664. Many rowing teams and clubs in Wilmington practice along the Christina River, among them the Wilmington Youth Rowing Association, Wilmington rowing association, Newport Rowing Club, University of Delaware.

In addition, there is a fall "head race" occurring on the river by the name of the Head of the Christina held every year in the boat house of Wilmington youth rowing association. Just south of downtown Wilmington, the Christina provides home port to the "Kalmar Nyckel", Delaware's official Tall Ship. Co-located with the Kalmar Nyckel is the home port to the U. S. Coast Guard Auxiliary's Rescue Detachment Wilmington; the Christina River is one of many Striped Bass spawning areas that empty into the Delaware River. The Christina Riverwalk makes up a segment of the East Coast Greenway, a 3,000 mile long system of trails connecting Maine to Florida.
