Accessible Boating, Chesapeake Region (CRAB)
Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (CRAB) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to making the thrill of sailing a reality for physically and/or developmentally-challenged individuals and for those individuals whose financial circumstances preclude their participation in recreation on the waters of Chesapeake Bay.
The Fleet – The Freedom Independence 20 was designed by Gary Mull, a noted naval architect and designer of the Freedom Yachts fleet, (which includes the Freedom 28, 30 and 36). The Freedom 20 is designed specifically for mobility-impaired sailors and features two chairs, counterbalanced below-decks, which pivot from one side of the boat to the other for tacking and jibing. The boats also have a 900-pound fin keel, which makes them exceptionally stable. The sails consist of a fully-battened mainsail and a club-footed jib (a jib with a boom).
CRAB operates a fleet of four Freedom Independence 20s: Fiddler, Blue, Hermit, and Steamed.
