Imagine how pristine the Chesapeake Bay and it's rivers were when these historic tall ships sailed it's waters in the 1600s!

Historic replicas of tall ships, including the Kalmar Nyckel, had several public sails on the Chester River last month. We moved to West River, Maryland to be near the Chesapeake Bay. Sailing her waters are a true pleasure. The Bay and her rivers are a sanctuary for wildlife and aquatic life.
