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!
The Boatyard is already where local sailors, fishermen and lovers of the Chesapeake enjoy pint drinks, great crab cakes and the freshest local seafood. Ease into the evening and enjoy the Boatyard’s new Happy Hour
