Skipjack Heritage, Inc. was formed in 2007 as a non-profit organization with a goal of preserving the maritime history and the cultural heritage of America’s oldest working sailing vessel, the Skipjack. The heritage includes the people who built, owned, captained or worked on those majestic vessels and all the other work boats built and used by the watermen. Their mission goes beyond the Skipjack to include the entire cultural history of their area which includes the upper Tangier Sound and greater Deal Island area. Skipjack Heritage’s goal is to document and preserve the history…the events…the stories of their people and their way of life from the earliest settlers to the present day.
