Some of CRAB’s guests want to take sailing to a higher, more competitive level by participating in sailing regattas. CRAB currently offers four regattas in the Annapolis area: two for recovering warriors, one in the Spring and one in the Fall; the Don Backe Memorial CRAB Regatta is for disabled sailors and hosted by the Annapolis Yacht Club in June; and The CRAB Cup which is open to all sailors and hosted at the Eastport Yacht Club in August.

The CRAB Cup (Formerly known as the Boatyard Bar & Grill Regatta)

Mark your calendar for the 2020 CRAB Cup on August 15th! You don't want to miss out on this party. This is CRAB's biggest FUN-raiser of the year!

Recovering Warriors

We offer specially arranged sailing and racing events for recovering warriors and their families.  In cooperation with veterans organizations and foundations, CRAB has offered two-day sailing clinics specifically for recovering warriors to learn to sail and race. We are happy to schedule sails for individual family members/friends and group sails for multiple people.

The Spring date is cancelled due to COVID-19.

The 2020 Fall Recovering Warrior Sailing Regatta is September 12th.

The Don Backe Memorial CRAB Regatta

This regatta is held every June and uses CRAB's fleet exclusively. Sailors with any kind of disability can come compete in a smaller scale race. Great for beginners and experienced sailors alike.
