Over 400 guests braved an early evening shower to enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and plated dinner by PeachBlossoms at the 18th Annual Boating Party on Saturday, September 12th.

The event--A Broad Reach on the Bay: Charting our Course--celebrated the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum's 50th anniversary of preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the Chesapeake Bay. The signature fundraising event supports the museum's education exhibition and boat restoration programs for children and adults.

During cocktails, The Honorable John C. North, II and his wife, Ethel, were presented the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Heritage Award in recognition of their significant contribution to the preservation of the cultural and maritime heritage of the Bay through their lifelong commitment to promoting and sustaining the great Chesapeake Bay tradition of log canoe racing.

The event was sponsored by Hawthorn PNC Family Wealth, Guilford & Company, Wye Financial & Trust, C-JAM Yacht Sales, and many other generous donors.

The 19th Annual Boating Party will be held on Saturday, September 10th, 2016. Contact for more information.
