The Chesapeake Bay Alberg 30 Association celebrated the sailboat's 50th anniversary in Annapolis, Maryland on the weekend (August 9, 10), hosted by the city of Annapolis and the National Sailing Hall of Fame. Eighty-five year-old Rolph "Towney" Townshend was one of the first Alberg 30 owners, who sailed in this year's "Old Timers Race" in commemoration. Townshend and Harry Gamber, 86, have been sailing most of their lives and won't give up on their "love affair". The first Alberg 30 sailboat, suited for both racing and cruising, was launched in the summer of 1962. Since then, more than 700 have been built. There are almost 200 members of the Chesapeake Bay Alberg 30 Association. The association was formed in 1964 when 10 Annapolis residents made a group purchase of 10 Albergs, imported from Ontario, Canada. In addition to the racing, the club began its cruising legacy when 8 of these new boats attended the New York World's Fair.
