Photo of the Week: A Lot of Beauty Along the Way

Hoops.S-BlakelySkipjack mast hoops, Chestertown, MD. 

In winter, the historic skipjack Elsworth (left) and Schooner Sultana (right) are docked side-by-side at the Chestertown dock. Sail technology has come far, but it's lost a lot of beauty along the way. No boat defines the Chesapeake Bay like the skipjack—a vessel that's more endangered now than the oysters it used to harvest.
