Good weather and beautiful boats brought hundreds of people to Urbanna Friday and Saturday from around the Chesapeake Bay to get a glimpse of the bay’s maritime past.
“This is the third buyboat rendezvous held in Urbanna,” said director of the event Bill Hight. “This was the biggest and best rendezvous that we have ever had.” The other two rendezvouses were held at Rock Hall, Maryland and Tangier Island.
Ted Parish, owner and captain of the buyboat Nellie Crockett, said that other than the rough trip down the bay to get here, it was one of the best rendezvous yet.
