The schooner Lady Maryland will be dockside at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum and out on the Miles River with local students from Sun., Oct. 21 through Thurs., Oct. 25.
Built in 1985 by the Living Classrooms Foundation, Lady Maryland is a replica of a Chesapeake Bay pungy schooner. Pungies were considered fast sailing vessels in the 1800s, and were primarily used as workboats carrying perishable cargo such as oysters, watermelons, tomatoes, fish, peaches, and grain.
Throughout the warmer months, CBMM’s campus is host to marina guests and numerous visiting tall ships and vessels, with on-board programming and dockside tour opportunities.
