We are about to embark on the 28th Annual Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race, an event promoting public awareness of the Chesapeake’s maritime heritage and the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay.
Our students, acting as goodwill ambassadors, are spreading the word of our gap voyage to Cuba while also meeting and greeting professionals in the schooner industry. After spending the last month sailing along the East Coast, our students and crew now have the opportunity to swap stories with fellow Tall Ship crews as we race south together.
Track our progress in the race today! Our official start time is 1:30pm EST.
