East Of Maui Chesapeake Stand Up Challenge

This is always a first class event put on by Mark and Mark. The conditions are usually pretty rough, its always hot in July, and there are always boats but it is A BLAST!!  Yesterday around 128 paddlers took on the challenge swinging!!!  And it lived up to its name, providing every paddler of different skill levels a fun and entertaining course. The boat waves were pretty intense in spots and there were a lot of people “Jumping in to cool off” ha ha but everyone had a SMILE ON THEIR FACE!! The after party killed it as usual, well done Mark and Mark and everyone at East of Maui and the Eastport Yacht club!! You set the standard high for events in Maryland
