The Patricia is a Chesapeake Bay log canoe built in 1942 by Oliver Duke. She measures 27'-4" long, and has a beam of 6'-434". The Patricia has a slightly hollow longhead bow and a sharp stern. Painted white, the canoe races under the no. 19. She is one of twenty-two traditional Chesapeake Bay racing log canoes existing today. The Patricia, and boats like her, carry on a tradition of racing on the Eastern Shore of Maryland that has existed since the 1840s. She is located at Cambridge, Dorchester County, Maryland.[2][3]

She was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
