Skipjack Office Party
Mary's office sailed on a Chesapeake Skipjack as a fun test to see if it would be a good outing for clients. The skipjack was a slow but powerful type of sailboat with a wide beam and shallow draft specifically designed for dredging oysters from the shallow waters of the Chesapeake Bay while under sail. Mostly built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, there are few of these iconic boats left. The Stanley Norman is now owned and operated by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as an educational resource.
