Meetings & Minutes
The next meeting of NVSPS will be at Boat US on September 9. Our speaker/performer will be Janie Meneely, editor and musician.
Janie grew up sailing on the Bay and has spent most of her adult life chasing down stories about people, places and history of her "big backyard" She's managed over the years to encrypt many of those stories in songs and performed on stages around the country, including Mystic Seaport's prestigious Sea Music Festival and the Chicago Maritime Festival. When she's not busy editing Chesapeake Bay Magazine, she's working on new musical material and sailing her little Tartan 27 Petrel.
