Helen Virginia


Updated 27 June 2017:
After an extensive rebuild completed in 2014, Helen Virginia went on to win the Deal Island Labor Day Skipjack Race that year with a precedent-setting all-women crew. She sails out of Deal Island, Maryland, as a working dredge boat. Capt. Art Benton took her back to Crisfield, where she was built, for the summer season in 2017 and plans to conduct nautical tours out of Crisfield in 2018.
