Model Skipjack Races

Free for CBMM members or with general admission

CBMM_ModelSkipjackRaces1Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum guests are invited to watch model skipjack races.

The radio-controlled (RC) sailing races are organized by CBMM’s Model Sailing Club, which meets regularly throughout the year to build and race these models. The final race of the season is Sunday, October 15, with the public invited to watch from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. from CBMM’s Fogg’s Cove waterfront. The course will be available after the races for guests to bring and race their own RC boats. All races are dependent on marine conditions.

Built in the early 20th century, the sail-powered skipjack was once a cost effective working boat used by watermen for oyster dredging. Today, only a few remain on the Chesapeake Bay, including CBMM’s skipjack, Rosie Parks. CBMM’s Model Sailing Club races RC models of these two-sailed bateaux, which at full size can vary from 38 to 48 feet in length. The 48-inch skipjack models are built from scratch from plans sold by the club at the Museum Store.

Started in 1983 as the Saint Michaels Model Boat Club, CBMM’s Model Sailing Club and Maritime Model Guild continue today through its many members and volunteers. To learn more about the races, or to join the club, visit bit.ly/modelguild, or contact Commodore Gary Nylander at gnylander@atlanticbb.net.

CBMM receives grant from Grayce B. Kerr Fund

(ST MICHAELS, MD – August 22, 2017) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., recently received a $100,000 grant from the Grayce B. Kerr Fund, an Easton-based philanthropy that supports educational achievement and growth.

“The Grayce B. Kerr Fund is pleased to support the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum,” said John R. Valliant, president of the fund. “Planning has always been a cornerstone of CBMM’s growth and we are happy to participate in this important effort.”

CBMM has recently commissioned a Master Plan to help guide the museum’s future growth. The grant will help underwrite the cost of the Master Plan process, an integral part of CBMM’s five-year comprehensive campaign to allow the development of a number of long-term campus enhancements, including the locations of four new buildings.

In 2015, CBMM launched its comprehensive campaign to support museum improvements and grow its endowment, with a goal of securing the future of CBMM, and thus the history and culture of the Chesapeake Bay. The campaign aims to solve challenges in dealing with older facilities while creating new opportunities to engage with its more than 80,000 yearly guests.

“We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of the Grayce B. Kerr Fund, which will allow us to commission a Master Plan to guide our long-term plans,” said CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “It’s been almost 15 years since CBMM last held a campaign. In that time, a great deal has changed in the life of CBMM’s infrastructure, as well as expectations of the 21st century museum guest. We’re ecstatic about what the future holds for CBMM.”

Thanks to generous community and state support in these endeavors, CBMM has been able to install upgraded campus-wide alert systems, make improvements to many of its exhibition buildings, and support the historic two-year restoration of 1889 bugeye Edna Lockwood. It has also allowed CBMM to expand its Rising Tide After-School Boatbuilding Program, whose participants launched a boat of their own creation during this year’s Community Day celebration.

Upcoming priorities include expansion of CBMM’s shipwright apprentice program, the completion of various deferred maintenance projects, and a push to double the number of K-12 students visiting CBMM’s campus over the next five years.

To learn more about the Grayce B. Kerr Fund, visit gbkf.org. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission.
