Founded in 2017, The Fort 2 Fort Race was conceived by local Annapolis sailor Drew Beach. Drew graduated from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2007, where he was a member of the Keelboat Sailing Team. Since graduating, Drew has been an active racer in Annapolis sailing all over the Chesapeake Bay on various boats.
As the Founder and Race Director, Drew wanted to start a new type of racing which could be challenged over a period of months each year. To often, our races are set on the schedule months in advanced which could have no breeze. We hope with the addition of these races, you and your crew can enjoy a record attempt for our area when the conditions are right.
It is our hope with these races, we may increase participation in sailing by having another type of event for those who love the wind, water, and camaraderie. Each year, a portion of the entry fees will be donated to a sailing program on the Bay to help further participation.
