The schooner Lady Maryland has been sailing the waters of the Chesapeake Bay since 1986, and is the flagship of the Living Classrooms Foundation. Since her launch, Lady Maryland has participated in nearly every Schooner Race and is the only vessel that carries students across the finish line. During the Race, students aboard Lady Maryland work side by side with the crew to stand watch, navigate, steer and handle sail.
On most days of the year, Lady Maryland can be found on the Patapsco River running day-sail programs with students from a variety of backgrounds and economic means. During Maritime Environmental STEM Voyages, students work together to trawl for marine life, perform scientific experiments and explore the commerce, history, natural resources, and ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay. This has been a challenging year, but Lady Maryland is proud to be serving local students in Baltimore and is looking forward to the introduction of a Virtual Field Trip in the Fall of 2020 and a sailing season in 2021.
The mission of the Living Classrooms Foundation is to disrupt the cycle of poverty and help our communities in Baltimore and Washington, DC become safer, stronger, and healthier. Funds raised for the Living Classrooms Foundation will support their efforts in education, workforce development, health and wellness, and violence prevention.
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.
