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.

To reserve your spot call the Captain at 410-886-1127 or go to our Public Sailing page. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.

Cheers!

Last season was rich with great sailing, exciting events and most of all, awesome people to share it with and 2013 promises to be even better.

The Lady Patty will resume operations on or about 1 April. The spring on the Chesapeake Bay can be wet but can also offer some awesome wind and crisp, cool temps for our sailing pleasure. Join us aboard Lady Patty to experience classic yacht sailing at it’s finest on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.

The 3rd Annual Elf Classic Yacht Race has been scheduled for May 18th and promises to be even more fun than years one and two. While LP has a full compliment of crew on the books, the race can be enjoyed from another boat, at the dock in Eastport and/or on the grounds of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Whether as racers or spectators, I encourage any and all to take part in the coolest new race of old boats on the Bay!

Lady Patty will be partnering again this year with her beautiful home marina and inn to offer sailing and room packages. Check out Knapps Narrows Inn and Marina for beautiful rooms, incredible views and easy access to the historic yacht, Lady Patty.

Are you wondering why I included a 2001 Chesapeake Bay Magazine cover in this post? I received two very special gifts for Christmas this year. One of which is this beautiful image of Lady Patty’s original wheel as photographed by the incredible photographer, Jim Tadder and featured on the cover of the October 2001 issue. The framed copy was a gift from friends, innkeepers, fellow sailors and previous owners of Lady Patty, Captain Mike and Carol Richards of The Lazyjack Inn and Chesapeake Lights.

I encourage you to check out their charming, waterfront B&B on historic Dogwood Harbor of Tilghman Island, MD.

As always, I appreciate all the support, business and kind words!

Cheers!

Jeff
