August 25-28, 2021

Check back here at the start of the race on August 25th for donation links.

Last year’s Virtual Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race was a great success! Thanks to the spirited participation of schooners, non-profit organizations and generous donors, the Virtual GCBSR raised close to $67,000 for educational and environmental organizations. See the results of the 2020 Virtual Race.

The Virtual GCBSR is here to stay!

Here’s how it works:

Each schooner will partner with the non-profit organization of their choice which fits into the GCBSR mission of preserving the Chesapeake Bay’s history and ecology. (Educational vessels with 501-c3 status can raise money to support their own programs.)

At the start of the race on August 25th, return to this page and donate to your favorite schooner. At the end of the race on August 28th, the schooner that raised the most amount of money wins. Simple!!

All funds raised will be donated to the non-profit partners.

See you on August 25th!
