With this week predicted to be the hottest of the summer so far doesn’t a sunset sail on the Chesapeake sound too good to miss? On Thursday, July 18th, enjoy your two hour sail on the historic 1901 Skipjack Sigsbee, which for 88 years was part of the oystering fleet. Sigsbee is one of the 35 surviving traditional Chesapeake Bay skipjacks and a member of the last commercial sailing fleet in the United States.
Ryleigh’s Oyster kicks off the sail with a cocktail reception at the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park dock at 6 p.m. and the sail begins at 6:30 p.m. Along with taking in the beauty of the harbor and the bay, enjoy unlimited oysters, fresh fruit crushes, beer, and wine.
