ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2012, twenty OLLI members took a working “cruise” on the Chesapeake Bay out of Annapolis, Maryland, aboard the skipjack Stanley Norman, a vintage, oyster-dredging sailboat owned and operated by The Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Crewmembers gave talks on skipjack history, oyster-fishery history, oyster biology, Bay ecology and threats to it. While under sail, the boat dredged for oysters, and OLLI participants assisted in unfurling and hoisting sails, hauling in an oyster dredge, and culling the oyster catch. OLLI member Dick Young created this video of the event and graciously shared it with us.
