14th place
Lady Maryland is a 104-foot (32 m) gaff-rigged, wood-hulled pungy topsail schooner. She is owned and operated by the Baltimore-based Living Classrooms Foundation and is used as an educational vessel. Lady Maryland is one of four historic wooden sailing ship replicas designed by Thomas C. Gillmer. I took this photo while sailing up the Chester River. Lady Maryland was on its way upriver to the 2018 Downrigging festival in Chestertown.
