About This Activity

Taste the salty life at the Skipjack Run to benefit local charities!
The crew of Skipjack Run sincerely appreciate your support in our inaugural event! The 2014 race was a resounding success and plans are already in the making for next year. We hope to make this a community lefted event of the absolute highest quality while preserving a uniquely personal atmosphere. We sincerely hope that you and your family will make plans to join us again!
Admire the Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Fleet as you cross Deal Island Bridge - it is the last commercial sail powered fishing fleet in North America and the only cohesive sailing fleet in the western hemisphere. Catch the osprey fishing for their final meals in our marsh creeks before they retire south for the winter. 
Held in conjunction with Deal Island Chance Volunteer Fire Company's Skipjack Bike Tour.
