Bay Journal Article:

Sultana setting a course for Chesapeake Bay appreciation (June 2008) - Fourth graders from Ridgely Elementary School in Ridgely, MD, squinted skyward at the large canvas sail flapping above their heads.

Once the enemy, Sultana now a friend of the Chesapeake (September 2003) - Sometime in the mid-1760s, Sir Thomas Asquith contracted with a noted Boston shipwright, Benjamin Hollowell, to build a fast schooner, a relatively new type of ship that was gaining in popularity. She would serve in trade and as his personal yacht. He named her Sultana.
