Clamming for a Cure 2018 | August 2018 Events Ocean City MD

Registration is currently open for the 2018 event. Final registration for the races will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, August 6, 2018.  The cost is $100 per team of two, which must be co-ed. Competitors must be 21 years of age and wear closed-toed shoes.

The first heat will kick off around noon in the bay behind Fish Tales. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society and earmarked to help breast cancer research and all proceeds will stay here on Delmarva.

In a single-person kayak, one team member will paddle from Bahia Marina’s boat ramp (next to Fish Tales) to the sandbar, where he or she must find a live clam, show it to the judge for approval and then paddle back to the boat ramp to tag their partner. The second person will also paddle out to the sandbar, retrieve a live clam and then race back. Competitors will race in heats. The top teams from each heat will advance to the next round. The top three teams will take home cash and prizes.  Last year, winners took home over $8,000 in cash and prizes.

A 50/50 raffle and a silent auction will also be going on throughout the day. Some of the silent auction items up for grabs include a longboard skateboard, custom made cornhole boards, fishing equipment, golf passes and restaurant gift certificates.

Fish Tales, located in Bahia marina, used to be just a locals hang out. Throughout the years the “word” has spread about this treasure on the bay. Still keeping its quaint, relaxed feel, Fish Tales has grown immensely since its doors opened in 1983. Whether you come by boat, car or bike, we have parking for all means of transportation. Enjoy the nostalgia of our original dock bar by watching our expert fish cutters clean the charter fleets daily catch. If you choose to sit on the beach, you can enjoy an umbrella shaded table by day and tiki torch lit by night. To satisfy your taste buds we offer a wide selection of lite fare, full entrees and kid’s meals, in addition to our eclectic daily specials. I need of a cocktail, we have 2 large bars to quench your thirst.
