Now in its thirteenth year, Sultana Projects’
Downrigging Weekend is one of the largest annual Tall Ship and
wooden boat festivals on the East Coast. Originally established
to mark the end of the schooner SULTANA’s sailing season,
Downrigging Weekend has grown to become a celebration of
maritime culture, wooden boats, and everything else that makes
the Chesapeake Bay great. What can you expect at Downrigging? A
waterfront packed with ships, schooners, and wooden boats;
performances by world-class musicians; lectures by nationally
recognized authors and filmmakers; opportunities to go sailing
as part of a fleet of “Tall Ships;” and the chance to spend the
weekend in one of America’s best preserved historic seaports.
Don’t miss it!
