The Chesapeake Cowboys are bringing their season finale boat docking competition to Nick’s Fish House and the Baltimore Yacht Basin on the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River in Port Covington this September. Boat docking is a 50-year-old watersport native to the Chesapeake Bay’s Eastern Shore and this marks the first ever extreme boat docking event in Baltimore on the Western Shore!

“The Baltimore Yacht Basin is proud to host the Chesapeake Cowboys for their 2016 season finale event. Their enthusiasm, competitiveness and passion for celebrating the heritage of the Chesapeake Bay watermen is something we look forward to enjoying together,” said Justin George, Dockmaster of the Baltimore Yacht Basin.

The festivities will kick off at Nick’s Fish House on Friday, September 23 at 6:00PM with the official Chesapeake Cowboys Captains’ party.  The party will continue at the Baltimore Yacht Basin on Saturday, September 24 at 12:00PM with live bands, local brews and foods, and crab picking and oyster shucking contests featuring some of the best competitors in the region. The Chesapeake Cowboys Extreme Boat Docking competition will run throughout Saturday and conclude with the “Grand Finale Shoot out” where the best of four Captains will compete for the fastest time to be crowned “King of the Bay.”
