Taste the salty life at the Skipjack Run to benefit local charities. 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.

Every mile marked, multiple water stops. Held in conjunction with Deal Island Chance Volunteer Fire Company's Skipjack Bike Tour. Race day registration available.
