Join us for a carpool trip to the historic seaport of Chestertown, MD, for the Sultana Downrigging festival. This is a great time. There will be at least a half dozen tall ships, including the Pride of Baltimore II, Kalmar Nyckle, and Lady Maryland. They will participate in an afternoon parade and you can ride on one of these historic vessels for $25 to $55 (you must make a reservation in advance to sail on one of the Schooners-check the website for details).
There will also be other historic skiffs and buyboats and a lot of activity in the harbor. In addition to the boats, there will be concerts, displays and fireworks after dark.
We will meet at the Belair Rd Shopping center just north of I 695 behind the Bank of America at 8:00AM and carpool to Chestertown. It is about a 2 hour drive to Chestertown. We will return late, probably around 11:00PM. If you are willing to be a driver, please let us know.
