Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (CRAB) is proud is announce its Volunteers of the Year for 2018. In making the announcement, CRAB President Brad LaTour stated, “Volunteers have always been the life blood of CRAB’s successful boating programs. Our special guests don’t leave the dock on a CRAB sailboat without a volunteer skipper or crew member aboard. Every day they provide safe and enjoyable sailing on Chesapeake Bay, and have for over 27-years. This year’s recipients are all female and they are setting a very high bar for future volunteers.”

Volunteer Skipper of the Year Angela Brock, Silver Spring, MD

Ange Brock donated over 200 hours of her time to teaching sailing to people with disabilities, wounded warriors, and local children from at-risk communities. One of Ange’s crew members commented, “She always arrived with a smile on her face and a warm attitude towards everyone, both guests and volunteers.  Having crewed with her several times, I found her to be a very focused skipper.  She took time to explain safety, and everything happening on the boat.  She is a great teacher and has the ability to get guests involved.  Ange also was very compassionate towards the guests needs and comfort.”

Crew Member of the Year Maude Laurence, Arnold, MD

Maude Laurence was selected as Crew Member of the year for the second year in a row. According to Paul “Bo” Bollinger, CRAB Executive Director, “Maude started volunteering for CRAB over four years ago, and she has personified what it means to be engaged, focused, and enthusiastic about our guests and the joy sailing brings to their lives.” Maude is gaining more sailing experience working for CRAB, but has found the greatest pleasure in focusing her time and attention on CRAB’s special guests while sailing.

Volunteer of the Year Caroline Foster, Annapolis, MD

CRAB’s image and communication materials have been greatly enhanced over the past two-years by Caroline Foster who volunteers to work on the CRAB Annual Report, The CRAB Cup poster and ads, and the CRAB brochure. CRAB President Brad LaTour noted, “CRAB’s work with people with disabilities is our primary mission and focus. How we communicate our success and the importance of our mission to others has vastly improved due to Caroline’s dedication and creativity.”
