Sailors ages 8-12 who have participated in the SC Maritime Museum’s Youth Sailing Program will show off skills they learned at camp this summer.

Group photos will be taken prior to each heat and then sailors will be escorted down to the docks and our volunteer will review the course with them. 

Corrugated Boat Regatta:  Preview of Boats 11 am – 2  pm  | Regatta 2:30 pm  |  MORE INFO
Regatta participants will stretch the limits of their ingenuity to design boats made entirely of corrugated cardboard. No other construction materials are allowed, with the exception of tape, waterproofing, and corrugated oars to propel the craft. No wood, no metal, no motors—just corrugated cardboard and imagination.  Boats can range from simple rafts to stunning ships and they must be able to float on the Sampit River.
