Sail back in history with CAPTAIN WADE H. MURPHY, JR. who, as a third generation waterman, ably achieves perfect synchrony of Boat, Wind, and Water whenever he's at the helm. Forty years experience makes a difficult task appear easy as Rebecca rocks and creaks to a rising wind, her sails fill, and she gathers way.
Sketchbooks, cameras, and questions are encouraged by colorful CAPTAIN MURPHY, whose knowledge and Tilghman Island charm make him a delightful and well-informed historian on numerous factual and anecdotal aspects of Bay life.
