Under full sail, the schooner "Serenity" arrived at Urbanna Harbor.   The Town of Urbanna and the 65-foot schooner have partnered to bring a unique sailing experience to the area. Serenity currently offers afternoon and sunset cruises on the Rappahannock River on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Serenity, with a14-foot beam (width) and full keel makes it a smooth and stable ship for passengers, said Captain Laura Lohse.  Urbanna Town Councilman Lee Chewning worked to bring Serenity to Urbanna.  Having our wonderful town marina and  a number of exciting activities that will draw guests to visit for a weekend or more is the key to our revitalization, he said. "Serenity will be an important link in that whole process.....
