This page highlights some of the accomplishments of our RBSA members, upcoming events, and important announcements. While we may be a smaller sailing association, our crews and boats have achieved a number of awards outside of Round Bay....Here are a few past, current and future activities of some of our Round Bay racers. RBSA is a great place to practice your skills, whether you are just beginning to race or have raced for many years!

Attention Severn River Sailors!

By Don Snelgrove l Round Bay Sailing Association

Everybody knows about the active sailboat racing that takes place in Annapolis during the warmer months. But did you know that you can comfortably (and inexpensively) race your sailboat on Round Bay, just five miles up the Severn River from Annapolis?

The Round Bay Sailing Association schedules weekly racing on Wednesday evenings, monthly racing on Friday evenings and special races on some Saturdays. Boats from 18 to 40 feet in length participate in friendly racing on our lovely Round Bay. Wednesday evening races will start on April 21, beginning at 6:00pm, and continue through late September. No racing experience is needed to register/participate. In fact, we have volunteers who will happily help sail with you on your boat and provide instruction on the course and racing rules. Annual membership dues are only $45. Round Bay sailing (and racing) is a great way to enjoy the water, have fun with friends/family, and meet new people.

For more information and an application, visit www.roundbaysailing.com or call/email me, Don Snelgrove, at 410-697-3173 or dsnelgro@aol.com.

The Round Bay Sailing Association (RBSA) fleet was in full race mode in July. At the start of racing season in late April, Governor Larry Hogan’s orders did not permit recreational boating, so RBSA canceled the first series of six races. Then, at the end of May, the governor opened recreational boating and series 2 racing began. RBSA has since completed series 2; the results for the six races in the series are included below (click to enlarge the image).
