"All I ask is a tall ship   
and a star to steer her by"   
John Masefield   

Join ELF and other classic sailing yachts for the 8th annual ELF Classic Yacht Race in 2018 – a true yachtsman’s race. The Eastport Yacht Club in Annapolis will serve as the departure point for this sailing classic to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, scheduled for Saturday, May 12, 2018.

SponsorsThis Classic Yacht Restoration Guild event recreates the traditions of yacht racing of the 1880’s when the races began on shore, included rowing to the boat on mooring or anchor, making sail and reversing the process at the finish, signing the race log on the grounds of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

Please consider joining or sponsoring this 8th annual event, which helps raise funds for the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, ELF’s homeport on the Chesapeake and the CYRG.
