What could be finer than enjoying wine and cheese at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s Van Lennep Auditorium and deck? Come out and join us for wine, cheese and great company with our local friends who will be sharing a bit of St. Michael’s history. We are honored to have Johnny Mautz who will assist with the introductions and opening remarks. Hear the local lore, Pam O’Brien, whose family dates back to the 1600’s will entertain you with her witty humor and enthusiasm along with photos of the town from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s.
The racing of log canoes emerged in the mid-1840’s from working boats dashing from oyster beds to market in efforts to obtain the best price for their goods. By the early 20th century, log canoes were built to race. The “Magic” was built in 1894 in the town of St. Michaels and has been owned by the Wilson family since 1923. Our guest speakers, fourth generation skipper, Jonathan Clarke and second generation skipper, George Wilson Jr. will speak about the log canoe sailing tradition.
