On the afternoon of Saturday, May 7, the schooner Sultana will arrive at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Maryland. The replica schooner will be at the Museum and on the Chesapeake with students throughout the week. Sultana will be docked along the Museum’s harbor-side through the early morning of Saturday, May 14.
The Sultana will be open for boarding to all Museum visitors from 2:30pm to 5:00pm on Tuesday, May 10. The tour is free for Museum members or with Museum 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 for up to 32 participants as well as live-aboard programs for up to nine guests.
The member-supported Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is open 10am – 5pm, 7 days a week. For more information, visit www.cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916.
