Sailboat Racing

Hoist the sails, grind the winches and trim the sheets - your team sailing experience awaits as you enter the Chesapeake Bay and head to the starting line for the countdown. Similar boats seem to be coming from everywhere, all with the same goal of hitting the line at the gun with speed and clean air. Join Captain Larry Vazzano for fast-paced sailboat racing aboard the CS40 Wharf Rat. Communicate with the trimmers, work together, delegate and make decisions to keep the yacht moving at target speeds as competitors work to gain an edge over you and other class boats. Respond quickly and adapt to the fast-changing environment of Sailboat Racing. Navigate the waters, trim the sails and keep a true helm working to maintain wind filled sails.

Don't have a team? No Problem, individuals and smaller groups can team up with the regular crew for an adventurous day racing on the Bay. Run the lines, set the sails and check the settings as we leave the dock and prepare for the start.

Brunch and Sunset Sails

Brunch & Sunset Dinner Cruises depart from Oak Harbor Marina in the Baltimore/Annapolis/DC area and feature freshly prepared meals May through October.
