On the afternoon of Sunday, May 4 and through the early morning of Saturday, May 10, the schooner Sultana is scheduled to visit the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in St. Michaels, MD. The replica schooner will be docked harbor side at CBMM and sailing on the Chesapeake with students throughout the week.
The Sultana will be open for boarding to all museum visitors from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 6. The tour is free for museum members or with general admission.
The schooner Sultana serves as an on-the-water classroom for learning about the history and environment of the Chesapeake Bay. An almost exact replica of a British schooner that patrolled the North American coast just prior to the American Revolution, Sultana provides day-long programs as well as live-aboard programs for participants.
During Sultana’s visit, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s waterfront campus and 12 exhibit buildings are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. For more information, visit www.cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916.
