Welcome Dinner on the Historic Dee of St. Mary's (limited tickets)

Thursday's Dinner is a sailing excursion on the Historic Dee of St. Mary's. Dinner will be served onboard the Dee. Bring your own Beverage (coolers provided).
Space is limited - reserve your tickets now!

The Dee is a skipjack sailing vessel that represents the last commercial sailing fleet in North America. The Dee is 56 feet long on deck with a 20-foot beam. Her mast is 76 feet tall and her boom is about 56 feet long. She carries about 2,600 square feet of sail with a hull speed of roughly 10 knots--about 11 miles per hour. The large amount of sail enables skipjacks to pull large iron dredges across the oyster beds of the Chesapeake Bay with a minimum amount of wind. The heavy dredges are pulled aboard using an hydraulic motor.
