Special guest third generation waterman Denny Hampton will exhibit replicas of his Chesapeake workboats.
On the first weekend of November each year Sultana Projects hosts a three-day festival to celebrate the close of Sultana's sailing season. Tall ships and historic vessels from across the mid-Atlantic and beyond visit Sultana's home port of Chestertown for this three-day public event which draws over 10,000 people to Chestertown. The weekend features opportunities for the public to view, board and even sail on an impressive fleet of visiting ships, schooners and skipjacks.
