C.R.A.B. Regatta

CRAB Regatta full SS0716Next Date: August 19, 2017
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.

Dick and Mary Ewenson of Spinsheet serve as Board and Regatta Chairs and the event could not be held without Spinsheet's dedication and enthusiasm.  See Gallery for pictures for last year's event.

Eastport Yacht Club generously hosts the event and serves as race committee. What makes the race different is that it is such a fun, no-pressure, feel-good regatta where captains bring their families and friends. But it is also a nice tune-up for the competitive Annapolis Race Week held throughout the week following the event.   Heineken provides very cool shirts for each boat and of course the after-party totally rocks with a great band and food provided by the Boatyard team!

Nobody has been more dedicated to the Boatyard Bar & Grill Regatta than Maury Niebur, who has skippered an entry all seven years of the event's existence.

"It's my favorite race on the bay," Niebur said. "First off, I really appreciate that it benefits a charity. Second, I love that it's a pursuit format, which is something different than the norm."

In the early years of the Boatyard Regatta, Niebur competed single-handed aboard his Beneteau 36.7. He was runner-up one year and finished fifth or better a couple other times.

Now racing a J/35 named Bump in the Night, Niebur finally got over the hump and captured overall victory in the Boatyard Regatta, which was held last Saturday on the Chesapeake Bay.
