Photo of the Week: Sunrise Sailing with the Grandson He Never Met

Photo of the Week: Sunrise Sailing with the Grandson He Never Met

—James Wilson

This is a sunrise photo from a father-son sailing trip I took with my five-year old son this past Memorial Day weekend. 

It is an amazing experience to introduce my son to sailing on the Bay in the same way my father introduced me to sailing on the Bay some 40 or so years ago. I can practically feel my father's presence with the grandson he never met as I talk about anchoring, navigation, and the stars above us.

Ensure that James, his son, and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights and places like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint—the plan to Save the Bay and its waters!
