The TAYA Tilghman Island Kayak Rally – August 25th 2013

The Tilghman Area Youth Association is hosting a Kayak Rally on August 25th to benefit this program.  If you know any local kayak enthusiasts or paddle boarders and could forward this message we really would appreciate your support.

The kayaks launch from the Tilghman On Chesapeake Yacht Club at 11:00 on Sunday Aug 25th and paddle 2.5 miles to the Black Walnut Point Inn for a picnic style lunch.  We provide transportation back to the Yacht Club, or experienced paddlers can continue on and circumnavigate the Island.  Rental kayaks are available if reserved in advance and there is also a lunch only option.  Everyone needs to pre-register by Aug 20th.

Front page coverage for our fundraising event

We, at Lady Patty Classic Yacht Charters are proud to have been a part of the 2nd Race ‘Round The Island last Saturday! While we didn’t win or even come close (last place actually) we certainly felt like winners.

We raised almost $1700 dollars for the Tilghman Area Youth Association’s youth sailing program. This modest sum would be put to good use by partially funding the purchase of Optimist sailboats, the perfect boat for a program such as ours.We feel great about that…but the best was yet to come.

After seeing the awesome front page article in the Star Democrat by writer and race crew-member Jennifer Allard we received a call from some very generous Talbot County residents offering us two pristine and fully equipped Optimists with dollys and rack. This amazing gesture exceeded my wildest dreams for our fundraiser. All I can say is thanks to those who helped set up the race/after-party, the racers who took part, the businesses who sponsored, Jennifer for her article and our amazing friends in Oxford for their gift. Thank you! Hopefully we can peak the interest of some of our youth to become the next generation of great, Talbot County sailors.

Cheers!

Yacht racing on the beautiful Chesapeake Bay

Hello all,

The socks are stowed in a box in the attic and the shorts are back in the drawer. This, my friends marks the beginning of race season for Lady Patty. I can’t think of a better way to start the season than to let the ol’ girl stretch her long legs in the way that she was intended.

So here it is…the first race of the year. The 2nd Race ’round the Island will take place on Saturday, May 4th on and around historic Tilghman Island. There is room aboard spectator boats and on the grass at the finish. People are encouraged to bring a blanket and the kids to enjoy a wonderful day for an excellent cause.

The R’rtI is sponsored by the Tilghman Area Youth Association, a non-profit organization that provides after-school programs, mentoring, tutoring and good, clean fun for the youth of the areas South and West of Bozeman/Neavitt Rd. I am hoping we can raise enough money to fund the beginnings of a youth sailing program here on the island….but that all depends on you.

You can help us achieve this goal by coming out, enjoying the live music by Carter Grant, pulled pork and libation brought to you by the ever supportive local businesses of the Bay Hundred peninsula.

So you want to race? That’s even better! Take advantage of the free dockage for Friday and Saturday nights compliments of The Tilghman on the Chesapeake Yacht Club, the official home of the R’rtI and hopefully the TAYA Youth Sailing Program. The registration form can be found on the official race website.

The forecast is Sunny and a high near 70…

Cheers!

Cool things happening on and around Tilghman Island

Hey all,

This spring is shaping up to be one of the most exciting times in recent history for our little patch of paradise.  YEAH SPRING!!!

We at Lady Patty are super excited to welcome Eric and Michael of Bay Hundred Restaurant to the Tilghman Island waterfront! I know these guys from previous projects that they have been involved in and am thrilled with the prospect of their talents and hard work being poured into the restaurant. As many of you know, we sail from the slip directly in front of their outdoor deck and bar. This makes us almost family, so Cheers Gentlemen! We look forward to supporting you in any way we can! I suspect that we might spend a little time at your beautiful outdoor bar.

Secondly, the Race ’round the Island on May 4th is shaping up to be a very fun day for sailors, spectators and landlubbers alike. Bring the kiddies down to the Tilghman on the Chesapeake to watch the finish and to join in the celebration of good folks, good music and good times! We hope to raise enough money to finance a youth sailing program for our Tilghman area youth. We feel good about anything that gets our kids out of the house and in to the real world. If you agree, come support our cause!

Lastly, we have partnered up with Lady Patty’s official home Inn and Marina to offer packages for rooms and sailing trips. Check out www.knappsnarrowsmarina.com to see the facilities, rooms and package rates. Their rooms are beautiful, up to date and what I consider the best value in waterfront accommodations on the Bay.

Follow us here on svladypatty.wordpress.com to keep up with all the fun stuff that Lady Patty and our fellow businesses on Tilghman Island have to offer.

Cheers!
