Lady Patty on Tripadvisor





Hello travelers,

We have had some BEAUTIFUL weather that has made for some fantastic sailing and that seems to have resulted in some incredibly kind reviews on Tripadvisor so to all of our friends who reviewed us, thank you. Your kind words have made us the highest rated charter sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay!

We try to provide our guests with a personal and memorable experience and the recent reviews make me feel like we are doing something right. Again, thank you.

We are very excited about late summer sailing and if 2013 is like my previous years on the bay, it promises some perfect conditions for an old racing yacht like Lady Patty. As you may know, she is not a light air boat. She really starts to come alive as the wind blows and that’s what we can expect from our late summer and fall seasons.

We really appreciate our guests spending their time with us and hope we can continue to provide them with an “All 5s” sailing experience that they will remember for years to come.

Shakedown sail this week then Lady Patty and I are ready for the season!

Hey friends,

The Spring has arrived and we are wrapping up the final preps to be ready for an awesome 2013. The only thing that remains is my solo shakedown sail on the fantastically beautiful Chesapeake Bay.

This has become a cherished ritual for me each spring. I look forward to spending many days underway with some super-cool people but before that happens I go it alone, just the old girl and me. I love the opportunity to listen to the boat-sounds, study the rig and dig the cool relationship a sailing vessel has with the world. There is so much going on with the wind, tide, waves, water, rigging, sails, hull and me. It’s really an incredible relationship. I sometimes get caught up in marketing, bookkeeping, maintaining the boat, managing the crew and watching the forecast and the reason I chose this life slips slightly from the forefront on my mind.

The annual spring shakedown lays it all out in clear and concise terms. I love this stuff! There is nowhere I would rather make my living than healed 35 degrees off normal with a rail in the water, rising and falling with the pulse of the elements, the yacht ensign popping in the breeze, the rush of water on the hull and the excitement of my guests getting their first taste or a welcome refresher of life at 8 knots on a 77 year old sailing yacht.

I still can’t believe I get paid for this!

I hope to see you all when I get back but for now, I have a date.
