8/22/2014: Getting Ready to Race

The Ida May has been hauled, painted, and caulked.  She is getting ready to race and defend her crown from last year's Deal Island Skipjack Races.  The Ida May just might be the fastest skipjack on the Chesapeake Bay and we look forward to sailing.  We have a new mast and boom from Cropper Brother's Lumber and we hope for fair wind on Labor Day!
