Woodwind - GCBSR Education Program
Fundraising Page Image

Schooner Woodwind was built to make sailing dreams come true back in 1993 by the Kaye family. For the past 27 years, guests from all over the world have sailed on her for public cruises, private events, multi-day cruises and educational cruises. Just 5 years later her sister, Woodwind II, set sail. Woodwind II is the "movie star" of the family - she played an important role in the movie Wedding Crashers. But it's the classic Woodwind that sails every year in the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race - and she's known to be a fast competitor! 

This year, Woodwind is working in partnership with GCBSR's education program to host educational programs aboard the vessel. Donations to Woodwind's campaign will be used to provide sailing experiences free of charge to local youth. Offering programs in STEM and navigation, Woodwind helps kids experience the magical Chesapeake Bay under full sail.

ABOUT 2020 Virtual Race

In a normal year, the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race takes dozens of schooners out on the Bay, racing from Baltimore down to Norfolk. But 2020 is not a normal year.

This year, we're holding a Virtual Race! Each of our schooners has picked a nonprofit partner, and is racing to raise as much money as possible for charity. YOU can participate in the race by choosing a schooner, making a contribution, and sharing this webpage with your family and friends! 100% of gifts will go directly to charity, and will help make the Chesapeake Bay region a healthier, stronger, and more beautiful place to live.

Donations of $50 to $249 will receive a Commemorative Face Mask.  Donations of $250 and above will receive a Commemorative "Q" Flag Burgee !!!!

Gifts are considered tax-deductible contributions to the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race. At the end of the race, GCBSR will contribute 100% of your donation directly to your team's charitable cause.

Please note: The Chesapeake Bay schooner community could not exist without people like you, and we're eager to keep in touch. If you opt in to email communications when you donate, GCBSR will share your contact information with the schooner you support, as well as the partner nonprofit that will receive your donation. If you do not wish to be contacted, please opt out of communications on the donation form.
