Historic Sailboat Tours of Edna E. Lockwood
June 8, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmfree
The last historic sailing bugeye in the world, Edna E. Lockwood, a National Historic Landmark, recently underwent a two-year restoration of her nine-pine log hull. This summer, the 85 ft., 130-year-old vessel is traveling to ports around the Chesapeake Bay and up the Potomac River, as part of a National Park Service-funded heritage tour. Included is a stop in Colonial Beach, Virginia (CBVA), during the Town’s Potomac River Festival.
Owned and operated by the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM), Edna Lockwood, will be docked at Town Pier from June 7 until June 9. Visitors will be invited to tour the ship’s deck free of charge Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 pm. and talk with crew members about traditional Chesapeake Bay boatbuilding techniques and the oystering industry past and present.
