Oxford’s Tred Avon Yacht Club Welcomes Chesapeake Bay Buyboats


Over the next couple of days, an important chapter of history is on display in Oxford with the arrival of the Chesapeake Bay Buyboats. Most built in the 1920s, these beautiful boats have been restored with about a dozen of the boats taking their annual tour around the Chesapeake.

In the 1930s there were over 2,000 buyboats licensed to work commercially on Chesapeake Bay, buying and delivering oysters to ports in the area.

They made for a beautiful site once again this week as the sun set over the Tred Avon River.
