Is she a Chesapeake Bay Dead-Rise Schooner?

the little tall ship schooner delight, which has been a fixture for 20 years on the chesapeake’s horizon off the town beach in cape charles, will be the lead vessel in norfolk’s annual harborfest parade of sail for 2010. For a front and center grandstand seat to view this spectacular annual parade, visit norfolk’s town point park on friday, june 11. The parade starts at noon as the fleet of harbor tugs blasts their steam whistles and sweep the sky with their powerful plumes of sea spray from their fire hoses. If you love sailboats, harborfest is an event not to be missed.

Video of delight starts at 4:28

harborfest’s parade of sail this year was particularly poignant for her captain and owner, dave kabler, and her regular crew which carried her through the parade waters into her slip at waterside marina.
This was her last year under capt. Dave’s command as she has been sold to a new owner from Baltimore, MD.
The delight has sailed in the great chesapeake bay schooner race since 1995, winning her class twice.
Known all over the bay for her sweet, traditional lines, delight was built 40 years ago in the east river of mobjack bay in north carolina by Thomas E. Colvin who also designed her. . . .
