My name is Wayne Esser, the owner of ESCAPE. ESCAPE was purchased in North Carolina April 2022. We have been doing a lot of upgrades and repairs readying it for sailing out of Annapolis this summer (2023). I grew up boating on Galveston Bay and the Gulf Coast and moved to Northern Virginia in 2008. I couldn't wait to get out on the Chesapeake Bay. I immediately joined a boat club for my initial fix and made the big plunge with ESCAPE last year. We are looking forward to meeting a lot new people that share our love of being on the water. We appreciate you stopping by to check us out.
