CMPG Chestertown Imaging Event set for November 1
Related eventNovember 01, 2008 we will be having a CMPG imaging event in Chestertown, MD (on the Eastern Shore).
The schooner SULTANA will be downrigged for the close of its sailing season. This is an annual event that draws many sailing vessels from around the mid Atlantic region. These include the KALMER NYCKEL, PRIDE OF BALTIMORE II, SCHOONER VIRGINIA, A. J. MEERWALD, LADY MARYLAND and the skipjack ELSWORTH to name a few of the 11 or so that will be on display, offering tours and sailing sessions for a fee.

I’m not sure if anyone is interested in reservations for a sailing junket so let me know ASAP and I’ll begin the process of gettin g on-board. At the same time let me know your preference for sailing vessel. Even if you decide not to take a sail, the imaging opportunities are limitless. I’ll set up a schedule for the day after I get YOUR feedback once you have a chance to look at the day’s events. If I get no feedback I’ll simply assume that you will be attending at your pleasure.
Transportation will be by private car. So pick your travel mate(s) as you see fit. We will be having lunch at one of several places in Chestertown to be decided when we know how many will be attending the event.
The following will give you an idea of the sailing cost per vessel and the web site will provide a description of each. Please get back to me with your preferences as reservations will be needed should we “go a sailing”.
