A collection of  classic wooden speedboats from the same era will also be on display along the museum’s docks.

The Concours kicks off with a participant welcome reception on Friday, September 28 at CBMM,  followed by a motor tour on Saturday, September 29. The round-trip motor tour begins at the Inn  at Perry Cabin and travels to the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay in Cambridge, before returning  to St. Michaels.  On Saturday, September 29, a gala fundraiser at the Harbourtowne Golf Resort and Conference  Center in St. Michaels is open to the general public and features cocktails, dinner, and a live  auction. Tickets for the gala fundraiser are limited and available for purchase prior to the event.

On Sunday, September 30, the main event welcomes the public to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime  Museum with the display and judging of participating automobiles and an accompanying fashion  show. Food and beverages will be provided by the Crab Claw Restaurant.
