Sailing Capital of the World, home of USNA, one of the oldest continuous state capitals.

My family history there goes back to the early 17th century.

Notice I said “there”, not “here”. I was born there, mostly raised there, but it ain’t my jam.

Local lad Chris Vermuelen won the French GP at Le Mans in '07.

His parents and siblings still run our local bakery... buy a loaf of bread and get some motogp goss. :)

We once had the worlds tallest freestanding structure. Doubt it’s still even in the top ten anymore.
