A long-time favorite with Chesapeake Bay Racers, Screwpile is returning again to its mid-summer 3-day weekend.

Three days of great racing and fun parties at Safe Harbor Zahnisers Marina… Friday-Sunday, July 19th-21tst, Mount Gay rum drinks, Beer Truck, red hats, music each night and the customary, excellent race management.

A huge Thank You to Screwpile Racers, to our loyal sponsors, and to all the hardworking volunteers who give up their time and make the regatta a tremendous success.
