We’ll be back up and running soon!

Unfortunately, Lady Patty suffered some damage to her rig over the Memorial Day weekend. The good news is that repairs are going well and we will be back in operation by Friday the 12th of June.

The bad news is that we are closed for business this weekend.

I hope you’ll be patient while we return LP to her usual safe and fully operational status.

Thanks!

Funnel_LyonDistilling_02Hello travelers,

The chilly wind and frigid temps have me thinking about Spring and with Spring comes sailing and with sailing comes boat drinks aboard the yacht Lady Patty!

We are very excited that our 2015 season will feature the spirits of Lyon Distilling Company including their rums, rye whiskey and moonshine, depending on what Ben and Jamie release that week. Like most hand-crafted small20140917_190252 batch liquors, the quantities are limited so the drink menu will be as they say, fluid.

If you like good hand-made Rum and love to support  small, local businesses, check out their new website or show them a little love on the Facebook.

I’m going to spill a little of their caramel Rum in my coffee, join the dog in front of the fire and leave you with a heart-felt cheers.

So, cheers!

Sailing Charters from Tilghman Island for the Chesapeake Bay…

 

..aboard the classic racing yacht Lady Patty. Two hour private and open sails departing up to three times daily. Experience the golden age of yachting today

3 hours from New York and Philadelphia, 1.5 hours from DC & Baltimore. Minutes from St Michaels, Oxford, Easton, MD on Tilghman Island. The yacht Lady Patty

Hello travelers,

Welcome to LadyPatty.com!

Thank you for a fantastic 2017 sailing season but like all other good things, this too must end. We are closing a little early this year but fear not…we will be back on the water in the Spring. We are very excited and proud to announce that  Lady Patty will be available for charters with former First Mate, now Master Captain Emma Brown sharing time the helm.

If your planning your Summer get-away for 2018 or looking for a gift Certificate as an awesome wedding reserve button present, you probably have a lot of questions. Here is the who, what where, when how and why of the classic yacht Lady Patty!

SONY DSC I’m Captain Jeffrey Mathias, owner and operator of the 1935 built offshore sailing yacht Lady Patty. We offer two-hour public sailing excursions and two-hour, half-day and full-day private charters for our guests to experience the magic of varnished teak, polished bronze, towering sails and the wide-open spaces of the Chesapeake Bay.

We are conveniently located just 3 hours from New York and Philadelphia, 1.5 hours from DC & Baltimore. Minutes from St Michaels, Oxford, Easton, MD on Tilghman Island. The yacht Lady Patty is in a perfect spot for our purposes. We motor for 5 minutes to the wide open Chesapeake Bay.

We pride ourselves on offering our guests a true yacht sailing experience. We don’t do harbor IMG_1558-2 tours or historic narratives. We hoist over 1,100 square feet of sail and let the ol’ girl loose in her favorite environment.  Whether it’s a relaxing reach in 5 knots of breeze or sailing close hauled to windward in a brisk 15+ we enjoy sailing in its purest form. Of course a delicious boat drink like a fresh-squeezed margarita can help make your trip memorable, too.

 

friends of LPWhy should you choose a sail aboard the Lady Patty?

Because we think our area of the Chesapeake is one of the best sailing spots in the country. We love sailing aboard the historic yacht Lady Patty and we look forward to sharing this simple but beautiful lifestyle with you.

Cheers!

Jeff
