Even if you don't sail, sign up and support the cause!
The Boatyard Regatta to benefit C.R.A.B. (Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating – a non-profit organization dedicated to making sailing available for people with disabilities) - next year’s event date is in August 19, 2017.
2017 year will be our 10th Annual Boatyard Regatta to benefit C.R.A.B. The Boatyard Bar & Grill’s owner was approached by C.R.A.B. to consider taking over the old Heineken Cup, a fun, friendly, family-oriented pursuit-start Regatta, and have it benefit C.R.A.B. Dick Franyo had visited The Boatyard in Barbados which holds a Mount Gay regatta and was of course very envious! Enthusiastic about creating his own Boatyard regatta and have it benefit an amazing organization like C.R.A.B., he immediately called his friends at Mount Gay who agreed to sponsor it and to provide those coveted red hats to participants. A Mount Gay resounding “yes” and the Boatyard Regatta was born.
