2022 Bay Paddle

Thank you to the 2022 ChesapeakeBay Paddle!

The third annual Bay Paddle, held August 27-28, 2022, raised more than $46,000 to benefit Oyster Recovery Partnership, Chesapeake Conservancy and Waterkeepers Chesapeake. The 45-mile, 2-day, staged paddle race began at Haven Harbour South Marina in Rock Hall and finished in Cambridge, Maryland. Since 2020, Bay Paddle has elicited over $330,000 in charitable donations. Chesapeake Conservancy extends our heartfelt gratitude to Bay Paddle Founder Chris Hopkinson; Bay Paddle 2022 sponsors Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Pacifico and Ørsted; and the 2022 Bay Paddlers!

Proceeds from this 215-mile, 8-day, staged paddle race founded by Chris Hopkinson benefited two incredible non-profits: Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP) and their oyster restoration efforts and the Chesapeake Conservancy for the United for a Chesapeake National Recreation Area advocacy efforts!
