Father’s Day Weekend aboard the Lady Patty

Lady Patty is back in business and better than ever!

Fall sailing on the Chesapeake Bay aboard the classic yacht Lady Patty. Available for private charters and public sailing from Tilghman Island, MarylandHello all,

As some of you may know, the Lady Patty  suffered some damage to her mizzen mast and rigging over the Memorial Day Weekend! I know, right? That’s a heck of a way to start off her 80th year in existence. The great news is that the meticulous repairs over the last two weeks has returned her to her usual safe, able and sea-worthy status as the longest operated charter sailing yacht in Talbot County!

Join us this weekend to beat the heat in the coolest way possible; under 1100 square feet of sail with a fresh-squeezed margarita in hand on the wide open and beautiful Chesapeake Bay.

We have plenty of room on our Friday Champagne Sunset Sail and on all three trips on Saturday(10-12, 1-3 and 6:30-8:30). There is still room on the Sunday morning Mimosa Sail from 10-12. Buy your tickets here  or call our office at 410.886,1127. We’ll answer any questions that you might have then sign you up for a wonderful sail aboard the classic yacht, Lady Patty!

Ask us about our reduced kid rates and our military, law enforcement and fire fighter discount.

I look forward to sailing with you.

Cheers!

Jeff

 

 

Sail from Tilghman Island on the Chesapeake – Lady Patty

 

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 weddingreserve 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 DSCI’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 harborIMG_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!

Summer is here on the Chesapeake Bay

Hello travelers,

The summer is in full swing and the sailing has been great!

This weekend is going to be typical for this time of year for temps and humidity but the wind is forecast to be a beautiful 10-15 knots from the Southwest. Lady Patty loves that kind of breeze. We should have some beautiful sails on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. As usual for this time of year, there is a chance of T-storms this weekend but don’t let that deter your planning. We monitor the radar prior to and during our trips. We will gladly refund the price of your tickets should  a charter be canceled due to lightning and T-storms.

Laura & Emma, the 1st Mates have some wonderful offerings from the ship’s bar. We have bottled water, soft drinks, a great and ever changing list of beer, wine and cocktails for sale on board. Here is the current list:

Beer – Coors Light, Brooklyn Summer Ale, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Fat Tire Amber Ale, Oscar Blues Brewing Company’s Mama’s Little Yellow Pils (pilsner), Old Chub Scotch Ale, Dale’s Pale Ale and the Ten -Fidy Imperial Stout (10.5 abv, not for the feint of heart), Ozzy Belgian Ale by Brewer’s Art in Baltimore and Flying Dog Atlantic Lager of Frederick Maryland.

For wine we have a great Italian white wine from Lost Vinyards called Treehugger  Organic Bianco and a pinot noir from Cavet.

Our featured cocktails are our famous Sunset Gold Margaritas made with top shelf  tequila and fresh-squeezed lime and clementine juice. We are also serving a Dark & Stormy which is Gosling Bermuda Dark Rum and ginger beer.
