The weekend begins on Wednesday nights in Annapolis with the blast of a starting gun. That's when dozens of sailboats jockeying in the Severn River harbor head to the starting line for the Annapolis Yacht Club's Wednesday night races, a summer tradition in this waterfront community since the 1960s. What began as "beer can races" - just a casual event to break up the week - has become serious business for the sailors, as well as for City Dock bars and restaurants. "This is real sailing," said Bobby Frey, the yacht club judge who runs the races, which are perfect for the competitive sailors who don't have the time to travel the country to regattas.

Several members of the Ravens played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium while in college, most notably tailback Ray Rice (Rutgers) and quarterback Joe Flacco (Delaware). Backup safety Jeromy Miles is the only Ravens player who, as a collegian, dressed in the home locker room at the historic facility, which was dedicated in 1959 to “all those who have served and will serve in the Navy and Marine Corps of the United States.” In fact, Miles is the lone active National Football League player who attended the Naval Academy.

The average number of days Annapolis and Baltimore see flooding that causes road closures or overwhelmed storm drains has grown ten-fold over the past 50 years, the largest increase in the nation, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. What NOAA calls "nuisance flooding" events occurred an average 39 days each year in Annapolis from 2007 to 2013, up from an average of just fewer than four days per year from 1957 to 1963. That increase of 925 percent is the highest in the United States, according to NOAA.
