Schooner Adventurer, captained by the renowned Duncan Hood, will be raising funds for the Downtown Sailing Center in Baltimore, MD.  

The Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) is an award-winning, nonprofit 501 (c)(3) community sailing center offering sailing instruction and access to sailing through a variety of programming to the greater Baltimore community since 1994. They provide quality educational and life-enriching programs that promote self-esteem and teamwork through the joy of sailing.

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.
