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.
Sail from Tilghman Island on the Chesapeake – Lady Patty
Spring of ’18 is near and we can’t wait to get back 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 are excited to be underway and look forward to sharing with you a glimpse into the past at the golden age of yacht racing. Join us aboard our lovingly restored and historic 1935 sailing vessel, the Lady Patty.
We are the only charter sailing vessel on the Eastern Shore that ventures regularly on the wide open expanses of the beautiful Chesapeake Bay.
We offer for your enjoyment a wonderful list of soft drinks, craft beers, wines and featured cocktails like ourSunset Gold Margaritas made from fresh squeezed lime and clementine juice and blue agave tequila….cheers!
Trips depart three times daily from Tilghman Island for the Chesapeake Bay.

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!
