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

Hello Travelers,

We are very excited about the coming week and look forward to welcoming you  aboard the Lady Patty!

Independence Day is a pretty special holiday around here since so much of the history of our struggle for independence from the crown took place right here on the Bay.

We will be offering three trips daily on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a Morning Sail on Sunday. Enjoy an all-American list of craft beers and drink specials while we sail out into the historic Chesapeake Bay with our own star spangled banner popping smartly in the breeze. Tickets are available for purchase online here.

Have a safe and happy independence day.

Cheers!

Lady Patty, Out

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
