Downrigging Sultana in Chestertown

Ships from across the mid-Atlantic came up the Chester River this weekend to participate in the schooner Sultana’s tenth annual Downrigging Weekend. Established in 2001, Downrigging Weekend marks the close of the schooner Sultana’s sailing season and the beginning of “downrigging” for many of the region’s tall ships and traditional sailing vessels. A very big annual event with lots of stuff happening all weekend. Cool.

This is definitely a left-brain activity. Look at all the complicated rigging! It’s exhausting to think about dealing with all of this. I can’t even tie a bowline without trying ten times……

My motto: if you can’t tie a knot, tie a lot…….

  1. Like you said, “cool”. Very cool. Is that REALLY your motto? Amusing 🙂

  2. Hi Su! No, I definitely stole that motto from someone else. Around here though, there are so many sailors, that if you really need to tie a knot, you can just stand back – someone will do it.
