42nd Annual Crab Derby Boat Docking Contest
-Sunday, September 1st

"Boat races of many sorts have been part of the National Hard Crab Derby since the 1950's. One of the most popular, the annual Boat Docking Contest. For many years, Dwight Marshall was the undisputed king of the boat-docking contest. From the event's inception in 1971 to his final victory in 1987, he won a dozen times, more than any other contestant before or since. In the early 21st century, derby officials decided to capitalize on its (the Boat Docking Contest) ablility to draw a crowd, for the first time charging sprectators an admission to view the contest." Jason Rhodes, "Images of America: National Hard Crab Derby"
