A six-pack of beer and some sailing cloth might seem a dubious construction combination for most Annapolis-area skippers. But add a little ingenuity, and you've got a model boat fit to compete in this year's "12 oz. Regatta," a quirky boat race that benefits local charity. Organized by the Chesapeake Outdoor Group, the seventh annual 12 oz. Regatta benefits Annapolis Community Boating, an organization that promotes access to boating, and has held free sailing classes at City Dock.

Next weekend, assuming the Chesapeake Bay isn't bombarded with gale-force winds, about 100 sailboats are expected to compete in one of the largest charity regattas in the state: The Hospice Cup. The regatta has been sailed every year since 1981 - so this year marks its 25th anniversary. Now there are 24 Hospice Cup regattas held in sailing communities all over the country, including in California, Florida, and the Great Lakes. The first race, however, was on the bay.

The Upper Chesapeake Bay area is served by the Upper Chesapeake Health System, with hospitals in Bel Air and Havre de Grace, and the upper bay area, in turn, supports the health system. One of the more fitting ways to tie the health system and the community support together is to use the Upper Chesapeake Bay waters. The annual Upper Chesapeake Hospice Regatta is held where the Susquehanna River becomes the Chesapeake Bay with the onshore party next to the Concord Point Lighthouse.

Pieter Schneider's research and planning paid off every time his boat hit the finish line. The 7-year-old had studied pictures of fast boats in magazines to design his catamaran, made of four aluminum cans and two plastic cups, with a paper plate sail. His model took first place in the Root Beer class of the Chesapeake Outdoor Group's 12 oz. Regatta Saturday. The fundraiser, held at the Port Annapolis Marina, drew more than 40 racers Saturday who had designed sailboats using 12-ounce cans — Budweiser or Bud Light for adults, and root beer for anyone below legal drinking age. The event, which has run for eight years and raised thousands of dollars for local charities, grew out of a serendipitous moment during an Outer Banks vacation.
