September 20, 2008 - 2nd Annual Craighill Cup sailing race. Contact the North Point Sailing Association for more information and registration details.
May 24, 2008 - The Chesapeake Chapter of the US Lighthouse Society coordinated and hosted a spring cleaning and volunteer day at the Craighill Channel Lower Range Front Light and we definitely took full advantage of their eagerness to work on a caisson! The keeper's quarters received a fresh coat of exterior paint, the hatch hinges loosened and closed (and locks now!), the grand opening of the outhouse finally took place (nothing inside but a bench toilet - intact!), and the railing was scraped and partially painted. Wow, that's a lot! Prior to their arrival, we moved the big orphan ladder to the platform and boy did it make a difference in accessibility. It's still not perfect, but far better than a rope ladder!

September 22, 2007 - The North Point Sailing Association held the inaugural "Craighill Cup" race. Entry fees went toward the Dock On The Bay fund in order to make the lighthouse accessible to volunteers and visitors in the future. Photos from the event can be found here. Stay tuned for the date and registration information for this year's race!
Many thanks to the RCRA for the race held on July 8, 2007! We're sorry you couldn't swing past the lighthouse due to the light winds, but we waved virtually to everyone out there!
