Our feet hails from around the Bay, from Annapolis and Herrington Harbor to St. Michaels and Oxford and points in-between. We share a common passion for this beautifully designed and well-built boat and a love for the Chesapeake Bay. We also enjoy gathering together for casual racing, good food, and great company.
Note: The 2017 and 2018 rendezvous were both scrubbed due to weather.
