    Name: Watch Log Canoe Races onboard The Patriot
    Date: September 9, 2017 - September 10, 2017
    Event Description:
    Join us onboard the Patriot during our regularly scheduled narrated historical cruises ar 11, 22:30 and 2:30 and experience the rare treat of watching Log Canoes race on the Miles River

    These iconic Chesapeake Bay sailing log canoes only race along the Chester, Miles, Choptank, and Tred Avon rivers on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. With long masts and large sails, these boats keep upright as they accelerate to speeds of 10 knots or more, thanks to crew members climbing to the ends of 15-foot boards that hang off the side of the canoe

    Based on weather and race scheduling, we hope to see these amazing sailboats race (and maybe capsize) while telling you the history of our area and seeing many beautiful historic mansions. Including 2 that were used in filming the movie, Te Wedding Crashers.
