As one of only twenty-three remaining Chesapeake Bay Skipjacks, the Wilma Lee is a member of the last commercial sailing fleet in the United States and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Wilma Lee was built in Wingate, Maryland in 1940 by the well-known boat builder, Bronza Parks, and is one of the younger boats in the extant fleet. She was purchased by the Museum from the nonprofit, Ocracoke Alive, in June 2018 to strengthen the mission of the Museum. Today, Wilma Lee runs educational programs and recreational sailing events to preserve our area’s rich maritime heritage and connect people to the Chesapeake Bay.

Liquified Creative Annapolis

“It’s amazing, and sad, to think there used to be over 1,000 Skipjacks plying the Chesapeake Bay. Now there are only 23,” says Wilma Lee Captain, Rick Flamand. “Getting to sail aboard the Wilma Lee is like getting the chance to sail back in time. It’s an experience you won’t forget.”

Tickets are currently available for public cruises through Memorial Day, and will then be released in two-weeks increments. Purchase tickets online at the link below or at the museum’s front desk Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Additional information about each cruise is provided on the ticketing site. Request a charter or education cruise today to give your guest or students a one-of-a-kind Annapolitan experience.
