"The Bay is an open invitation to an endless variety of adventures. From the thrill of competition, crewing in sailing boat races out of Fishing Bay Yacht Club, Deltaville, to relaxing romantic getaways in quaint historical villages like Gloucester, Mathews, and Smithfield where you can absorb the natural beauty, habitat and wildlife, and charm, while amidst a calmer pace on backroads and taking in local epicurean delights.
The Bay, this invitation, is for all, but those of us who are Virginians, it is in our backyard! With every visit I feel the tide pulling stronger for my return and discovery of more of its majesty, a richness that needs to be preserved for future generations."
