EWE Spirit Cup Annapolis

Second Annual SCC Spring Race for EWE Spirit – The EWE Spirit Cup

Event Update 6/1/22:

Forty-one boats registered to sail in the EWE Spirit Cup, over 40 runners participated in the warm-up event at Forward Brewing, and most importantly, we brought in over $18,500! With another round of grants planned for next quarter, these funds will go far in making a difference in the lives of those in our community who are most in need..


The regatta was a beautiful day on the water with a steady 10-knot breeze for our 7-mile course. Sailors and friends enjoyed Forward Brewing's "La Spirit" beer (created in Geoff's honor), handed out at the finish line as well as at the post-race party. We want to thank our sponsors, competitors, Sailing Club of the Chesapeake volunteers, and a special thanks to our top fundraising team, Annapolis Sailing Fitness, and our top individual fundraiser, Craig Ligibel. Thank you for all you do in the name of EWE.


We are already looking forward to next year's EWE Spirit Cup and hope to see you there!














On May 21, 2022, the Sailing Club of the Chesapeake (SCC) will once again host its Spring Regatta in Annapolis in support of the EWE Spirit Foundation. This fun pursuit-style race is open to any sailing vessel. Anyone looking to Sail Like EWE and live like EWE should register to sail, fundraise, and join in the post-racing fun!


There will be awards for the top fundraising individual and team and special Forward Brewing beer for all finishers, and any individual who raises at least $100 for the foundation will receive a EWE Spirit Cup tech shirt from Team One Newport.


In Key West EWE Spirit supporters raised over $30,000. Let’s show the world what Geoff’s hometown can do!

A peer-to-peer fundraising competition—open to anyone, whether sailing or not—will be held in conjunction with the regatta to benefit the EWE Spirit Foundation.

Again this year Forward Brewing will have a special run of La Spirit beer in honor of Geoff Ewenson and in support of the EWE Spirit Foundation.
