Mae Lynn Rose under sail

Annapolis resident, George Vorwick, is embarking on the 2022 Annapolis to Bermuda Ocean Race, June 3-June 12, on his Hanse 458 "MaeLynn Rose".

The Annapolis Bermuda Ocean Race is an event like none other! The 753 mile race provides a unique combination of inshore and offshore sailboat racing through its route down the Chesapeake Bay, across the Gulf Stream, and onto Bermuda. The race, held bi-annually, is technically challenging, physically taxing, and alternatively boisterous and serene. It is not just a boat race, it is an aspirational event that enables many sailors to fulfill a lifelong ambition: a blue water passage to a coral island with pink sandy beaches and legendary hospitality.

Racing on the MaeLynn Rose with a crew of seven friends and family members, George is using this once in a lifetime opportunity to raise visibility and important funds for UM BWMC. Encouraging others to support him in this race by making a donation to UM BWMC, George is helping UM BWMC to continue to provide the highest quality healthcare to the communities we serve.

Even more exciting-can you guess the time it will take George to finish this epic race? Place your guess below in hours, minutes, and seconds, and the individual who guesses closest to his finish time will win a special Sailor's Delight Libation Package valued at $200!

All proceeds raised will directly benefit UM BWMC and its initiatives and programming focused on building and reinforcing Community Wellness.
