Virginia Maritime Heritage Foundation and Nauticus Foundation have partnered bringing schooner VIRGINIA to the downtown Norfolk waterfront for summer education programs, visitation and special events as fund raising efforts to get VIRGINIA sailing intensify.

For the community, the move provides an opportunity to explore a piece of the living history of Hampton Roads, a re-creation vessel of a Chesapeake Bay Pilot Schooner. It will also be a part of the ongoing educational programs already in place at Nauticus, adding value to the visitor experience.

As part of the move, Virginia won’t be sailing this summer, as it is still not financially feasible to hire the full complement of crew necessary to sail.
We need your help. Please consider a tax deductable donation to VIRGINIA today! Schooner Virginia website.
