This is your opportunity to help support Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (CRAB) so we can continue the mission to bring the thrill and freedom of sailing to people with disabilities, recovering warriors and local youth from at-risk neighborhoods.
Over the last year CRAB faced many challenges getting the boats out sailing and planning for our new Adaptive Boating Center in Annapolis.
Because of the pandemic CRAB was not able to take guests out sailing until June. But sail we did!!! So many of our guests let us know that many of other the programs they normally attend were closed for the pandemic. We received so many thanks for giving them a safe way to get out and do something fun.
On land CRAB has been working away at getting our Adaptive Boating Center built. We have the property; a former marina on Back Creek. The custom floating docks are on order; hopefully to be installed before the end of the year. The plans for building are in the works and permitting stage, with construction planned to start next year. You may learn more about the Adaptive Boating Center here: https://crabsailing.org/adaptive-boating-center/
The CRAB Cup is on Saturday, August 21st at Eastport Yacht Club. We have a sailing race and the Shore Party after. Additionally, new this year we are adding a Poker Pursuit for powerboats. We are biased of course, but we think it is the best party of the year in Annapolis! Learn more and sign up here: https://crabsailing.org/crabcup/
