…or just come sail away…
or even be a landlubber and have some nice fish and chips on a riverboat.
Downrigging Weekend has food, art, music, crafty things to buy, Chestertown’s historic colonial architecture, classic cars and wooden boats ashore and afloat, and real fish and chips on a riverboat… on a river…where you can have the slightly disconcerting sense of “why does the floor move” while enjoying an awesome view of a gorgeous river and a floating timeline.
It also has that floating timeline. Reproductions of ships from 1630 to 1812, plus hundred year old skipjacks, oyster buy boats and other Chesapeake Bay working craft.
Oh, and you can sail on them. Which puts you in the midst of the Greatest Photo Op Ever. Book a flight now though, the boats are filling up fast.
If you can’t book a boat, go anyway, there’s lots to see and do, free.
