Have you ever desired to sail aboard a tall ship or crew aboard a vessel during a major sailing race? Imagine a fleet of schooners racing head to head in the Chesapeake Bay and you're part of the crew- pulling the sheets, port and starboard tacks with brisk winds and the spray of salt water stinging your face. Captivating. Exhilarating. Memories not soon forgotten.
