This is the first book that documents the development and history of racing activity on the bay. It focuses on the limited, inboard racing classes of the American Power Boat Association (APBA) because those craft have been the racing segment most avidly followed in the region. The drama of racing and the personalities of those involved are conveyed through the author's first-hand experiences gathered during close to thirty years of following Chesapeake Bay regattas. Particular tribute is paid to the owners, drivers, and mechanics who have risked their money, and sometimes their lives, to undertake the exciting and dangerous sport of powerboat racing, and, in so doing, to entertain the enthusiasts who follow their activities. An appendix listing of boat names, owners, and classes will surely be of interest to any racing fan.

Harvested for food, harnessed for power, and home to more than 3,600 species of plants, fish, and animals, the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries have long been essential to the sustainability and survival of the region’s populations. Historian William S. Dudley explores that history in an engaging and comprehensive account of Maryland’s storied maritime heritage. Dudley paints a vivid picture of Maryland’s maritime past in its broadest scope, exploring the complex and nuanced interactions of humans, land, and water through descriptions of shipbuilding, steam technology, agricultural pollution, commercial and passenger transportation, naval campaigns, watermen, crabbing, and oystering. He also discusses the evolution of recreational boating—yachting, cruising, and racing—and the role of underwater archaeology in uncovering the bay's shipwrecks. These interactions become chapters in the larger story of Maryland’s waterways, a story that Dudley tells through insightful prose and stunning illustrations. This rich history of Maryland's waterways reveals how human enterprise has affected—and been affected by—the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.
