Father’s Day Sail

As a unique Father’s Day present, Jack Spain’s son and son-in-law took him sailing along the York River near Williamsburg with his three grandchildren. All three men worked in various professions, and they have a family farm on the Mattaponi River in King & Queen County. The Mattaponi is one of two rivers that feed into the York. It splits into three rivers all the way west to Interstate 95. The family farm grows corn, soybeans, winter wheat and lobloly trees for harvest. Jack said, “When the tree branches are touching, that suggests that roots are also touching. So the trees have to be thinned. They grow to 50 feet.”
