AHOY from the Potomac! Travel Onion hosts writer event with Potomac Riverboat Company

Jul 10, 2010

This week, the team at Travel Onion, along with some of D.C.’s inspiring writers, set sail on the Potomac Riverboat Company's Skipjack Minnie V. Sailboat!  Those in attendance included Tonya and Ian of World World Footprints, Jason of DCFud, Whitney of Pamela’s Punch and Mike of GregsListDC.


The trip was a blast from the past; the Skipjack Minnie V. is a sailboat with an illustrious history.  Built in 1906 in Wenonah, on Deal Island located off of Maryland’s Eastern shore, the ship has survived many generations.  It began its life in the oyster dredging business, until being refurbished and rebuilt in 1981 by Lebourne Smith.  The Minnie V. now sets sail on the Potomac, providing local residents and visitors with a fresh look at the river's scenic landscape.  Everyone aboard kicked back and relaxed while enjoying the beauty of a sunset on the river.  We would like to thank the Potomac Riverboat Company for a wonderful time aboard the Skipjack Minnie V., and all of our friends for joining us!

For those interested, the experience on the Skipjack Minnie V. lasts approximately 90 minutes and departs from the National Harbor dock in National Harbor, MD.  Reservations are not required but highly recommended, as there is limited seating aboard.
