Charters on former America's Cup racing boats to benefit bay

June 07, 1999

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and America's Cup Charters are offering companies and individuals around the Chesapeake Bay an opportunity to improve teamwork skills and enjoy the splendor of a day on the bay.

Participants will trim the sails, grind the winches and take the helm of one of three racing boats that contributed to the longest winning streak in the history of sports, the United States' 132-year retention of the America's Cup up to 1983.

Weatherly, American Eagle and Nefertiti are available for full-day charters out of Annapolis from Oct. 19 to Nov. 2. Sailing experience is not necessary. Aboard all three boats will be experts who will walk participants through maneuvers. Each charter includes lunch and beverages.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's efforts to restore the health of the bay. The deadline for charter registration is June 15. Information: 401-846-9886 or 410-268-8816.
