Free Admission Weekdays in February

CBMM_FreeinFebruary18_1The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is offering free admission Monday through Friday this February, thanks to the generous support of Free in February sponsors Shore United Bank and Awful Arthur’s of St. Michaels, Md.

During February, CBMM guests will receive a discount card for 15% off all meals at Awful Arthur’s, which will be redeemable through March 15, 2018.

Located along the Miles River in historic St. Michaels, Md., CBMM’s campus is a short walk or drive to area restaurants, shops, inns, hotels, and other attractions. Free admission covers access to CBMM’s numerous indoor and outdoor spaces, including the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, a working boatyard, and numerous permanent and changing exhibitions focused on the traditions, environment, and history of the entire Chesapeake Bay region.

Progress on the log-hull restoration of the 1889 bugeye Edna E. Lockwood is now underway and in full public view in CBMM’s boatyard, and continues through 2018. The nine-log bugeye was built by John B. Harrison on Tilghman Island, Md., in 1889 and is the oldest of her kind still under sail. The oystering boat is a National Historic Landmark and was donated to CBMM in 1967 by John R. Kimberly.

“This winter, come and experience the Edna Lockwood restoration before it wraps up in October 2018. Our shipwrights and apprentices are now fairing the new hull with the old topsides, and it’s incredible to watch the transformation,” said CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “We also have a great number of exhibitions for all ages to enjoy, and this time of year offers clear, underwater views of oyster beds, and abundant waterfowl and wildlife along our living shoreline and quiet waterfront.”

This winter, CBMM members and guests can enjoy several special exhibitions, including Robert de Gast’s Chesapeake, Potomac Waterfowling: Gunning the Nation’s Rivers, and Bob Grieser’s Lens on the Chesapeake.

Admission will be free weekdays in February for all CBMM guests. General admission is otherwise good for two consecutive days and is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students with ID, $6 for children 6-17, and free for CBMM members and children five and under. During the winter months, CBMM is open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. seven days a week, except for Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Inclement weather closings are announced at cbmm.org.

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. Charitable gifts to the museum’s annual fund enable CBMM to educate and inspire the next generation of Chesapeake Bay stewards, and can be made online at cbmm.org/donate.

America’s Cup’s Dawn Riley to attend CBMM’s Sept. 10 gala

CBMM_BoatingParty_RileyDawn(ST MICHAELS, MD – September 1, 2016) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. has recently announced American sailor and four-time America’s Cup racer Dawn Riley will be a guest at CBMM’s 19th annual Boating Party Fundraising Gala on Saturday, September 10.

This year’s gala is themed around the historic America’s Cup race—featuring foods and libations representing the six competing nations in the 2017 race—and includes a rare, and up close experience aboard the schooner America. The 139-foot yacht America is a replica of the vessel that started the America’s Cup tradition in 1851 by defeating the British to win the Royal Yacht Squadron’s “Auld Mug.” Boating Party proceeds support the children and adults served by CBMM’s education, restoration, and exhibition programs.

CBMM_SchoonerAmerica2_Sept2016Riley is CEO and Captain of America True, a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation promoting and introducing young people to the joys of sailing nationwide. The America True Youth Program was born in 1997 while CEO Dawn Riley was campaigning for the 2000 America’s Cup. Under Riley’s direction, America True was the first syndicate in history to be headed by a woman, and the first to have a co-ed crew.

Riley is also the first American—man or woman—to have raced on three America’s Cup teams and two Whitbread Round-the-World Race (now Volvo Ocean Race) sailing teams. She is former President of the Women’s Sports Foundation, founded by Billie Jean King and is active in many public service and political activities. Dawn currently is running Oakcliff Sailing in Oyster Bay New York which is building American leaders through sailing. With more than 100 boats and year-round programs, Oakcliff prepares individuals for careers in the industry including positions in the America’s Cup, Volvo, and Olympics.

“Dawn Riley is one of my personal superstars and one of the most influential and inspirational sailors in the world,” remarks CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “We are excited to host her as our guest at this year’s gala and share our maritime world with her.”

Boating Party guests will have the opportunity to meet Riley at the September 10, which begins at 5:00 p.m. along Navy Point and the Miles River. Boating Party tickets are $250 per person with special sponsorship table reservations ranging from $2,500 to $7,500. Each table sponsorship offers special recognition in the Boating Party program, at the table, on name badges and event signage, along with a special gift. Table sponsors include Wye Financial & Trust, a division of Shore United Bank, the Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond, and Wilmington Trust. To request an invitation, or to reserve your table, call 410-745-4978 or email Liza Ledford at lledford@cbmm.org.
