Beaufort North Carolina Round the Island Race
The Beaufort North Carolina Maritime Museum’s annual Wooden Boat Show Round the Island Race is a non-stop race around the Carrot Island and Bird Shoals will be held on May 6, 2018. All traditionally rigged sailing craft are welcome. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the NC Maritime Museum TSCA Chapter
The race committee will establish the race course to suit wind and weather conditions and announce it a skippers meeting in the Harvey Smith Watercraft Center that Sunday morning at 9:00 am. A representative from each boat must attend the skippers meeting.
The start line for the race is between the dock at the Watercraft Center and a mark in Taylor’s Creek. The finish will be on the beach across from the Watercraft Center.
While participating in this race all boats will carry appropriate safety gear as required by law and the practice of safe seamanship. Chase boats will be escorting the fleet, but self-sufficiency should be the goal of each boat crew.
