Downrigging Weekend, Chestertown Md.

The harbor and wharfs of Chestertown will be filled to capacity on the weekend of October 28- November 1, 2009 as ships from across the mid-Atlantic make their way up the Chester River to participate in the schooner Sultana’s ninth annual Downrigging Weekend. Established in 2001, Downrigging Weekend marks the close of the schooner Sultana’s sailing season and the beginning of “downrigging” for many of the region’s tall ships and traditional sailing vessels. The weekend will afford the public opportunities to view, board and sail on the assembled fleet and to join in celebrating the maritime heritage of the region. A fleet of “tall ships” and historic vessels are scheduled to participate in Downrigging Weekend 2008, including the KALMAR NYCKEL, PRIDE OF BALTIMORE II, schooner VIRGINIA, AMISTAD, A.J. MEERWALD, LADY MARYLAND, ELF and more!
