SULTANA Public Sails

Departing and returning from SULTANA’s home port of historic Chestertown (and occasionally other ports around the Chesapeake), SULTANA’s two-hour public sails are a great way to sail the Chester River onboard a traditional schooner. Passengers are encouraged to help raise the sails, steer using Sultana’s seven-foot long tiller, and explore the authentically reproduced crew’s quarters below-decks.

SULTANA’S 2015 Public Sail Schedule will be posted by March 1

Until then please reference SULTANA’S 2014 schedule.  SULTANA’s 2015 schedule will be very similar to 2014.

Music Sails – All of the fun of a regular SULTANA trip with the added treat of hearing great music by local artists or SULTANA’s own Chris Cerino.

Ecology Sails – Help pull our 20-foot-wide sampling net to catch fish, crabs, and other critters from the Chester River.  Lots of fun for kids and adults, too.  And yes . . . we still go sailing, fire the guns, and do all of the other things that make a SULTANA sail fun.

Wizards on the Water – SULTANA joins forces with Chestertown’s Harry Potter Festival to offer an exciting and magical sailing experience. On board will be a local wizarding historian ready to share stories of the magical pirates, wizards and creatures that inhabit the Chester River. And yes . . . just like our other sails, we still go sailing, fire the guns, and do all of the other things that make a SULTANA sail fun.
