Adventure is a steel gaff rigged schooner based in Galesville, MD and has been owned by Dick and Leigh Woodling.

Adventure is sailing virtually this year to support The Maryland Food Bank. In a year as challenging as 2020, the Food Bank is going above and beyond to help people feed their families.

  • From March through August 2020, the Food Bank distributed more than 31.4 million pounds of food vs. 15.9 million pounds during the same period in 2019, a 97% increase over last year.
  • Maryland Food Bank is also spending more money than ever before to purchase food, having seen a 414% increase in the amount of money spent ($13.7 million vs. $2.7M) between March and August.

"...we're going to need the support of Maryland residents, businesses, and government to help us feed increasing numbers of individuals and families facing hunger statewide."
-- Carmen Del Guercio, President & CEO, Maryland Food Bank

To learn more about the Maryland Food Bank and its important work, please take a moment to watch this video.

We can help. These are our families. These are the children and families who depend on the Bay for their livelihoods. These are the children who are going to be taking care of our Bay in the future. They should not have to worry about where their next meal is coming from. Maryland Food Bank is trying to change that. Team Adventure asks for your donations to help our MD families.

Thank you for your help and support!

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.
