Puddleduck Regatta! Oct 17!

So everyone at our Marina was so stoked about our PD Racer build that Tom, the owner, suggested that we hold our own Regatta and offered to host, so we're DOING IT!!

Here's the Info:

The Middle River Misfits Yachting Association and Middle River Landing Marina is pleased to announce our first annual "Before it gets too damn cold Puddle Duck and small Sailboat Regatta," Oct 17 in Essex, Md.

The Regatta is open to all sailboats eight feet and under, with a special class for Puddle Duck Racers.  Free camping is available overnight for Captain's and their crews at the Marina.  

Boat display and rigging will commence at 10AM with the race at 2PM.  The course will be here on the beautiful upper end of the Middle River, with trophies for overall winner, Puddle Duck Racer class winner, and various other things as we think of them.  Entry into the race is a massive $5.  Anyone is welcome to come and watch under the drinking trees.

Middle River Landing Marina is located at 1901 Old Eastern Ave, Essex, Md, just a bit North of Baltimore Md. For further information, drop a line to

Hope to see you and your boat there.

This is gonna be FUN :)



  1. Are you publicising under the usual areas that PDR people frequent? Have you told Chuck over at

    1. I just read the Duckworks forum (Yahoo group) and I see your entry there. Looks like you are one step ahead of me on that one.

  2. And, yes, to answer your earlier question, I've gotten email to Chuck and to Shorty about this, as well as emailing the local PDRacer groups around us. Only trouble is, it's rather short notice (the marine police folks took a while getting back to us), but we'll have a good time anyhow.
