Hello - I saw this post when I googled Guy H. Asbury. My step-father knew him intimately - Asbury was from Montreal and died in Nova Scotia:
A wonderful time again with the Sara B. Thank you for a ride with her and your hospitality. (Chris ans Sue)
Will the Sara B come out of her shelter soon??

Windsong is a 47' Tancook Schooner homeported in Norfolk, Virginia where she offers 6 person private charters on the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding waters.

Operating as usual

That's a wrap folks! Harborfest 2022 is officially over and there couldn't have been a better way to end it than a sunset sail back to our marina with friends.
