Summer of ’18 is here and we can’t wait to get under sail with you! 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 present, you probably have a lot of questions. Here is the who, what where, when how and why of the classic yacht Lady Patty!
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 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.
Why 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.
We have had plenty of April showers and May’s flowers are doing fine. Hopefully the rainy season is behind us and we can get on with a great Summer sailing season. Join us aboard our classic sailing yacht departing from Tilghman Island for an experience that you won’t soon forget!
We are currently offering up to three sailing excursions daily at the following times:
In addition to our public sails, we also offer Private Charters aboard our classic sailing yacht for you and your group. Two-hour sails start at 575 depending on the day and time. Call or email to reserve your Private Charter.
We love the wedding season! Consider us for on-board bachelor or bachelorette parties for up to 13 of your closest friends and family. Did you know that we also offer on-board weddings performed by the Captain while under sail. Give us a call to describe your dream wedding charter and let us make it the experience of a lifetime.
We offer a true classic sailing yacht experience! We don’t do canned narratives or motor boat rides. The 1st Mate will hoist over 1100 square feet of sail so we can do what the ol’ girl was built to do. Go sailing! Lady Patty was built in 1935 for offshore racing by M.M. Davis & Son of Solomon’s Island, MD. Later she spent her early life cruising and racing all over the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Most noteworthy, she even made a Pacific sail as part of the Transpac Race to Hawaii. In conclusion, you will love the rich story of glamorous ports, hotly contested regattas, battles with the ocean’s fury and more.

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.

Sail from Tilghman Island on the Chesapeake – Lady Patty
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 small 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.
