Celebrating the Skipjack Tradition

City of Crisfield

Labor Day's Skipjack races off Deal Island reminds Delmarvans of a rich history that saw thousands built beginning as early as the late 1800's. Delmarva Public Media's Don Rush talks with Robert Fitzgerald who is working to restore the famed "City of Crisfield" about grand history of this working vessel.

Don Rush is the News Director at Delmarva Public Media. An award-winning journalist, Don reports major local issues of the day, from sea level rise, to urban development, to the changing demographics of Delmarva.
