Tangier Island 2006: Waterman Parks meets Coverman Gottschling

Farewell to Milton Parks - An American National Treasure

Milton Parks of Tangier Island, the Wayfarer Chesapeake cruisers' most beloved waterman. Milton passed away at age 90 in the summer of 2022. He is now a heart-warming memory to all on Tangier Island and the Wayfarers who knew him. Obituary here.

And speaking of Milton and Chesapeake Bay ...

2023.01.30: My first web project of 2023 will be to revisit and polish the log of Dick Harrington's legendary solo 2005 cruise on Chesapeake Bay (photo above) and the logs of its more than a dozen imitations (polishing now complete to the end first part of 2012 cruises, North and South). 2023 will see Cruise veterans, Hans Gottschling (87) and Uncle Al (81), planning to keep the tradition alive at the end of May 2023. We will welcome company - especially folks with a motor.

Cedar Key Rally to follow Midwinters

2022.11.20   Jim Heffernan invites us to join him and Linda in Cedar Key, Florida right after the Midwinters February 6-12 or any part thereof. See the invitation here.
