May 12 brings 8th annual Elf Classic Yacht Race to Chesapeake Bay

CBMM_ElfClassic3_May2018 CBMM_ElfClassic1_May2018 CBMM_ElfClassic2_May2018(ST MICHAELS, MD – February 19, 2018) The Elf Classic Yacht Race returns to the Chesapeake Bay on Saturday, May 12, 2018, with the traditional yacht race departing from Annapolis and arriving at the finish line on the Miles River and the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md.

The May 12 race features a nautical Le Mans start, beginning with a captain’s meeting on land, followed by the sound of a whistle, signifying each yacht captain’s mad dash to a tied-up dinghy, or tender. Next, the captain’s row out to their moored vessels and waiting crews, before tying up their tenders and raising anchor, with up to 30 yachts racing off from Annapolis in a cloud of white sails across the Chesapeake Bay.

The Classic Yacht Restoration Guild, Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, and Eastport Yacht Club are sponsoring the annual race, which includes a fleet of antique and classic sailing yachts, both large and small. Race proceeds benefit CYRG and CBMM, where race participants will be greeted along CBMM’s Fogg’s Cove and the winners announced at a trophy reception later in the day.

Organized by CYRG, the race features America’s oldest active racing yacht, the 1888 Elf. Restored to historically accurate condition and re-launched in 2008, Elf is a Lawley-built 30-foot class cutter. Elf pioneered offshore yacht cruising in 1893 by being the first small craft to race round-trip from Marblehead, Mass. to Halifax, N.S.

“It’s very unusual to see a single classic yacht on any given day, so watching a fleet of them sailing away from the anchorage and into St. Michaels is an incredible experience,” said CYRG President and Elf skipper Rick Carrion.

The event begins at 8:00 a.m. at the Eastport Yacht Club, where spectators can watch the fleet depart Annapolis against the scenic background of the U.S. Naval Academy. The race can be seen as it crosses the Chesapeake Bay to the Eastern Shore and into the Eastern Bay, and the Miles River.

The race concludes at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, where onlookers will greet the fleet of classic racing yachts as they arrive along CBMM’s Miles River waterfront, anchoring off in Fogg’s Cove. The race ends when all captains have rowed to shore, and signed the race log on land.

To see a documentary and race footage of the Elf Classic, go to bit.ly/ElfClassic. To register a yacht for the race, download a complete registration package at cyrg.org, or contact CYRG’s Rick Carrion at cyrg.elf@gmail.com or at 443-566-2212. The racing fleet is limited, with early registration recommended, giving preference to wooden, classic, and traditional yachts.

CYRG is a non-profit, member organization dedicated to the preservation of maritime heritage through the maintenance and operation of Elf. She was designed by George Lawley & Sons of South Boston, Mass., and built in 1888 for William H. Wilkinson. Over the warmer months, she can be seen dockside at CBMM, and under sail along the Miles River and Chesapeake Bay.

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Serving more than 70,000 guests each year, CBMM’s campus includes a floating fleet of historic boats and 12 exhibition buildings and historic structures. For more information, visit cbmm.org.

“Seeking Justice” Chautauqua Summer Series in St. Michaels July 9-11

CBMM_Chautauqua_CopyrightTomChalkley_2018

(ST MICHAELS, MD – February 19, 2018) On the evenings of July 9-11, the annual Chautauqua Summer Series brings three live, waterfront performances to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. This year’s Maryland Humanities’ series theme is Seeking Justice, with all living history performances taking place from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on CBMM’s Fogg’s Landing and the Miles River. All performances are free and open to the public.

A Chautauqua performance is a historical dramatization featuring individuals who are part scholar and part actor. Each performance is broken into three acts, where the performer represents a historical figure in the first person, then invites audience questions; and in the final act, steps out of character to answer questions that the historical figure could not have been able to answer.

The 2018 Chautauqua Summer Series at CBMM is generously sponsored by Karen and Langley Shook, and is funded in part by a grant from the Talbot County Arts Council, with revenues provided by the Maryland State Arts Council, Talbot County, and the Towns of Easton, Oxford and St Michaels.

On Monday, July 9, Seeking Justice, with Frederick Douglass will kick off the series. Talbot County native Frederick Douglass, a writer, orator, and abolitionist, was one of the most important African-American activists of the nineteenth century. During the “Year of Frederick Douglass,” the bicentennial celebration of his birth, this Maryland icon will be portrayed by Bill Grimmette, a living history interpreter, storyteller, actor, and motivational speaker who has appeared as Martin Luther King, Jr., W.E.B. DuBois, and Benjamin Banneker at Chautauqua performances in Maryland, Colorado, and South Carolina.

On Tuesday, July 10, Seeking Justice, with Eleanor Roosevelt will be performed. Eleanor Roosevelt, a humanitarian, diplomat, and the longest serving First Lady in American history, was also an important advocate for justice. She will be portrayed by Susan Marie Frontczak, a writer, speaker, living history presenter, and storyteller. Frontczak has appeared throughout the United States as Marie Curie, Clara Barton, Mary Shelley, and Irene Castle.

On Wednesday, July 11, Seeking Justice, with Thurgood Marshall will be performed. Thurgood Marshall was a civil rights activist from Baltimore who broke barriers as the lead NAACP attorney in Brown v. Board of Education and as the first African American Supreme Court Justice. He will be portrayed by Brian Anthony Wilson, a film and television actor and producer who will perform a scene from the play Thurgood by George Stevens, Jr., followed by a dialogue with Lenneal Henderson. Henderson is an internationally recognized scholar who brought Marshall to life in the 2010 Maryland Humanities Chautauqua tour.

“Chautauqua” was the name for the Chautauqua Lake area in upstate New York, where the movement began in 1874 as a Methodist summer retreat. A wide range of religious lectures and educational programs attracted a huge following. As it evolved, the Chautauqua movement presented the latest in thinking in politics, economics, literature, science, and religion. Maryland Humanities launched the modern Chautauqua program in Maryland in 1995.

The Chautauqua Summer Series at CBMM invites guests to bring carry-on food and beverages along with their own chairs and blankets for seating. All performances are held on the lawn of Fogg’s Landing, near CBMM’s Steamboat Building, with convenient entry adjacent to parking. In the event of rain, performances will be held in the Van Lennep Auditorium, with space limited. No registration is required.

For more information, visit cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916. Additional information about the Chautauqua Summer Series can be found at mdhumanities.org.

Build a half-hull model in St. Michaels this March

(ST MICHAELS, MD — Tuesday, February 6, 2018) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Model Guild is offering a beginner’s model boatbuilding workshop from 9am—5pm on March 3 and 4, with limited participation and advanced registration needed.

The weekend workshop includes instruction on carving a solid half-hull model of the historic Chesapeake Bay tugboat Delaware. This model is band-sawed from a two-tone wood block and carved to the rounded shape of the Delaware’s hull. The cabin and pilot house are cut from the same pieces. The pieces are then shaped and sanded to a fine finish and then mounted on a baseboard to form a wall display piece.

The workshop is taught by the skilled craftsmen of CBMM’s Model Guild, who enjoy sharing their knowledge and techniques with CBMM members, visitors, and students.

Built in Bethel, Del. by William H. Smith, 1912 tug Delaware once hauled scows on Broad Creek-often laden with lumber-and towed ram schooners to and from Laurel, Del. Occasionally, she carried parties of young people to Sandy Hill for day trips on the Nanticoke River. Donated to CBMM by Bailey Marine Construction in 1991, Delaware is now a floating exhibition along CBMM’s waterfront campus.

Adults and children 12 years of age and older can participate in the workshop, with all tools and materials supplied, as well as some use of the Model Guild’s power tools. The two-day workshop takes place in CBMM’s Bay History building and is $80 for CBMM members or $110 for non-members, with participants taking home their half-hull model at the end of the workshop.

Registration is required to cbmm.org/delawarehalfhull, with more information about CBMM’s Maritime Model Guild and Sailing Club at bit.ly/CBMMModelGuild, or by contacting Bob Mason at 410-745-3266 or at bobmason@atlanticbb.net.
