CHOPTANK HERITAGE SKIPJACK RACE
September 24, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
One of only two skipjack races left on the Chesapeake Bay. The race takes place, 10am-noon, on the Choptank River off Cambridge, with the starting and finish lines near the entrance to Cambridge Creek. The best vantage points for viewing are at Long Wharf or Great Marsh Park, or on the water by boat. At Long Wharf there will be bleachers, food vendors, and a radio-controlled skipjack demonstration for those who like their skipjacks on a smaller scale. Cannons on either side of the creek entrance will start and finish the race with a cannon salute. More info at www.skipjack-nathan.org.
