Designed to introduce persons with disabilities and their families to the therapeutic value and pure joy of the wind and water, by sailing on Chesapeake Bay. The SailFree program is scheduled one Sunday each month from April through October. Information on SailFree Sundays is available on the CRAB calendar and reservations are recommended. Our volunteer Skippers and Crew look forward to taking newcomers and returning guests sailing. Unless noted on the calendar, we offer SailFrees from CRAB's dock at Sandy Point State Park. Directions to the dock are on the contact page. Individual sails are approximately 45-minutes long but can be modified depending on the weather and personal circumstances.
Boats are ready for participants at 9:30 a.m. and the last boats leave the dock at 2:30 p.m. Please dress warmly, the weather on the water is cooler than in town.
To make reservations for a SailFree Sunday, please complete the SailFree Registration form. Please note that each guest is required to sign a yearly waiver form which may be downloaded below and signed in advance. Please bring this completed form with you.
CRAB guests are required by the park to pay the customary service charge for entry to Sandy Point State Park unless they possess a Maryland Park Service Golden Age Pass, a Maryland Park Service Annual Passport, or a DNR Universal Disability Pass. The DNR Universal Disability Pass is free and does not require renewal. For more information click HERE. Military personnel who display active military identification also have the day use service charge waived.
NOTE: Once the park is closed due to full capacity, there is no entry for SailFree participants.
