The Schooner America Visits Annapolis

Boasting the name of America’s Sailing CapitalAnnapolis seems a fitting place for it’s latest visitor. An article published by The Capital Gazette titled Historic schooner moors in Annapolis, highlights the Schooner America – a replica of the ship that won the first America’s Cup.

“This is one of the more impressive of the older boats and replicas that visits Annapolis,” said Robert Madden, a retired National Geographic photographer who lives in Shady Side. “You should see how powerful these are when they are under full sail. She’ll move through two-foot chop with barely a ripple.”
