TAYLORS ISLAND — The Taylors Island Boat Docking Challenge 2021 took place on Aug. 30, bringing a uniquely Chesapeake-style sport to this bayside community. The event has become an annual tradition, not only as popular entertainment, but also as a way to support the Taylors Island Volunteer Fire Company.
