The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum welcomed more than 450 people to its waterfront campus in St. Michaels on Saturday, September 10th, for its 19th Annual Boating Party Fundraising Gala. The event featured a rare experience aboard the schooner America, a 139-foot replica of the vessel that started the America’s Cup tradition in 1851, along with a cocktail reception, dinner, and dancing to live music by dance-band DC Fusion. Proceeds support CBMM’s education, restoration, and exhibition programs. For more information, visit
