The Chesapeake Bay Grand Banks Owner’s Association (CBGBOA) exists to help each of us more fully enjoy our boats, the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, and the camaraderie of each other. The Grand Banks name includes Heritage, Eastbay and Aleutian Series vessels. While the CBGBOA membership consists of owners, previous owners and vessels located primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region, we welcome any Grand Banks owner and urge you to join us to participate in our Rendezvous and weekend cruises, our other social activities, and to share in our newsletters.

Our two major events are the Member Brunch and the Fall Rendezvous. To learn more about our monthly cruising schedule click here, or select "Cruising Schedule" listed on the menu to the left.  

If you're not yet a member, we encourage you to consider joining our association. You will be added to our newsletter list and be updated with new information as available.

Browse through our website. Cruise through the photos from previous rendezvous and cruising activities. Read our past newsletters. Check out the Cool Links section.
