Weekend forecast brings changes to Chestertown’s Downrigging Weekend


UPDATE: 3:06 p.m., Oct. 26, 2012

Sultana Projects has announced that all scheduled activities for Sunday Oct. 28 during its Downrigging Weekend Tall Ship and Wooden Boat Festival have been cancelled.

Forecasts are now calling for hurricane Sandy to make landfall on or near the Delmarva on Monday or Tuesday. Because of the potentially historic nature of this system, Sunday will be required to make advance preparations for the arriving storm.

Activities for Friday and Saturday will proceed as planned, except that all sails on Kalmar Nyckel and Sigsbee have been cancelled for the entire weekend. Saturday sails on all other vessels including Pride of Baltimore II, A.J. Meerwald, Lady Maryland and Sultana, and the skipjacks Sigsbee and Elsworthwill take place as scheduled.

Earlier today, Sultana projects had announced that Kalmar Nyckel’s three scheduled public sails were canceled.

Please contact the Sultana Projects office at 410-778-5954 for details.

Please consult the Sultana Projects’ website for additional updates to the schedule as they are warranted.
