Prestigious sailboat racing events have made Annapolis famous. But the real reason for Annapolis' reputation as "America's Sailing Capital" is the community of Eastport. There are more marine-related businesses here than anywhere on the East Coast between Newport and Fort Lauderdale.

In the 1970s, the demand for waterfront property threatened to replace the working boatyards and marine services with high-rise condos. In response, the City of Annapolis passed a zoning law to protect and preserve maritime-related activities and businesses. Thanks to this law, Eastport continues to serve sailors and boaters just as it always has.

Text with main photo: Modern sailmakers use ultra high-tech materials like Mylar and Kevlar to produce sails that are exceptionally lightweight and strong.
