With the first event under their belt, David Landsman, Jimmy Jernigan and Victor DiMarco are energized about the return of the Rockin The Harbor Poker Run to Maryland this summer. Landsman, the veteran performance boat enthusiast who partnered with Jernigan of the Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association and DiMarco of the Thunder In The City Poker Run to bring the event to his hometown last year, is particularly excited to host another “rockin” good time in downtown Baltimore at the end of June.

“It’s a little early still but we are already ahead of last year’s registration at this point,” said Landsman, who plans to run Game Changer, his impressive 43-foot Midnight Express powered by five Mercury Racing 450R engines, in the poker run. “We had 63 boats in 2019 and we’re expecting at least 80 boats for the run this year. We can accommodate 100 boats and several hundred people with the larger banquet room we’ve lined up. The marina and everyone we worked with last year are welcoming us back with open arms. The main difference is going to be the lunch stop as The Jetty was maxed out last year so we’re going to go to Red Eye’s Dock Bar instead.”
Landsman said Harbor East Marina ended up being a perfect place to host an event, especially with the adjacent Four Seasons Hotel and Harbor East Marriott, which is set to host the Saturday night dinner party and awards banquet.
