The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. is once again offering the opportunity to view Chesapeake Bay sailing log canoe races along the Miles River while aboard its 1920 buyboat, Winnie Estelle.

The two-hour scenic cruises depart from CBMM at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, June 24, and at both 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays, July 29, September 9, and September 16, 2017. Regular drop-in cruises aboard Winnie Estelle are otherwise offered at CBMM Fridays through Mondays, May to October.

These iconic Chesapeake Bay sailing log canoes only race along the Chester, Miles, Choptank, and Tred Avon rivers on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. With long masts and large sails, these boats keep upright as they accelerate to speeds of 10 knots or more, thanks to crew members climbing to the ends of 15-foot boards that hang off the side of the canoe.

These two-hour special cruises aboard Winnie Estelle offer scenic views and photo opportunities, along with commentary from CBMM’s docents and crew. The cost is $25 for CBMM members, or $35 for non-members, with boarding limited and advanced registration needed at bit.ly/winnie2017.

On select Saturdays beginning June 24, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s 1920 buyboat, Winnie Estelle will take passengers out to watch the Chesapeake’s iconic sailing log canoe races along the Miles River.
