Lady Maryland

The replica Chesapeake pungy schooner will be docked harborside at CBMM or seen sailing along the Miles River and nearby waterways. While in St. Michaels, the Lady Maryland will take Salisbury School, Worcester Prep, and Country School students sailing as part of the Living Classrooms Foundation’s programming.

Built in 1985 by the Living Classrooms Foundation, the Lady Maryland is a replica of a Chesapeake Bay pungy schooner. Pungies, which were considered fast sailing vessels in the 1800s, were primarily used as workboats carrying perishable cargo such as oysters, watermelons, tomatoes, fish, peaches, and grain.
