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.

For midshipman Duncan Mamer, the skipper of a Navy 44, the waiting was the hardest part of the 19th biennial Annapolis-Bermuda Race. "The prevailing conditions for this race were mostly just lots and lots of light air," said Mamer, a Caldwell, Iowa, resident and rising senior on the Naval Academy's varsity offshore sailing team. "Whether it was on the Chesapeake [Bay] or half an hour from the finish line, we definitely spent our fair share of time drifting around. "The biggest challenge was definitely just always trying to keep the boat moving.

The final day of Severn Sailing Association's Laser Atlantic Coast Championship Regatta ended with a whimper off Annapolis yesterday afternoon.The only race that was attempted was abandoned in the face of an extremely light and dying wind, a strong flood tidal current, and a 20- to 25-degree wind shift that forced most of the fleet eastward into the mouth of the Severn River instead of south toward the first weather mark.In the absence of results yesterday, the regatta consisted only of Saturday's two races, falling one race short of the number required for an officially sanctioned championship.

The bay breeze whips at the sails. Nearby, a small group of government workers chats amicably. The college students look over their fleet and the gray skies beyond. They want to get in one more practice before the Naval Academy Mids get on the water. It's a scene right out of Annapolis. Only this is Essex. As the Eastern Baltimore County area continues to shed its rusty image, it has become home to waterfront estates and marinas filled with yachts. Now, Essex is hosting its first collegiate regatta -- a signal to the sailing world that it might have overlooked a spot.

ST. MARY'S CITY -- The day is crisp, the leaves turning gorgeous shades of red and gold and the big team on campus is preparing to meet its archrival this weekend.But the familiar sounds are missing. No clacking pads, no loud pops from a hard tackles, no "Hut! Hut! Hut!" from a quarterback.That's because this is St. Mary's College, and the big team on this campus along the St. Mary's River is the sailing team.On most afternoons, the sounds are those of the gentle lapping of water against the dock, the flapping of sails as they're hoisted and the voice of coach Adam Werblow as he directs his team in its afternoon practices.

Legendary Annapolis-based sailor Gary Jobson played a key role as the tactician on Ted Turner's Courageous, which won the America's Cup in 1977. The Baltimore Sun recently interviewed Jobson, now the president of U.S. Sailing and a member of its Hall of Fame, about this year's America's Cup finals, which begin Saturday in San Francisco. Jobson is serving as a television commentator on NBC.   Having been a part of so many past America's Cup races as a competitor, can you ever see yourself trying to compete in the America's Cup again - or has sailing, like other sports, become a younger man's game as the boats get much faster?

One of Lauren Morrell's earliest memories involves a family hike and a candy wrapper, which explains why the 16-year-old from Arnold is now the student representative to the Severn Riverkeeper group and why, the day she turned 15, she applied to become a Pangaea Young Explorer, trying to help a world-renowned adventurer named Mike Horn save the planet. Her passion began with those summer trips to the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York — and that little piece of trash. "We were on top of a mountain, and my father just picked it up and said, 'I just hate it when people litter the mountain,'" Morrell said last week at the Severn School in Severna Park, where she is a senior.

THE WATER is warming up, everyone is on vacation, the air is still - and did we mention it is getting hot? But stuffy weather need not precipitate a full retreat to an air-conditioned cube. We've pulled together a few water-related events that don't count on a strong breeze. Listen to tunes at City Dock on Wednesdays at noon. Today's concert features Susquehanna River Valley crooner Don Shappelle. Take lunch and sun block. On July 6, the band will be Them Eastport Oyster Boys, playing songs such as "Good Hat, Good Dog, Good Boat" and "Back Creek Crab."
