2021 Official Sponsor Letter and Packages

Dear Seafaring Friends,

After being on the hard for a year, we are setting sail for the 32nd Annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show to be held on Saturday, October 16 and Sunday, October 17, 2021. 

Your support in the past has made the award-winning Georgetown Wooden Boat Show (GWBS) the most shipshape of its class and has allowed the Harbor Historical Association to realize its dream of establishing the SC Maritime Museum.  In spite of the challenges of the past year, we had a successful 2020.  We held a safe summer sailing camp for youth, offered virtual History for Lunch events, and presented and hosted new exhibits which included the Smithsonian traveling exhibit, Water/Ways.  We humbly thank you.

We would like you to consider renewing or upgrading your Wooden Boat Show sponsorship, or joining for the first time.  Five levels range from the $300 Ensign to the $5,000 Admiral and each comes with benefits.  See Sponsor Packages for specifics.  Whether you’re a veteran sponsor or enlisting now, we say thank you and welcome.  

PART A – SPONSORSHIP
Choose the sponsor package you want to purchase.  You will receive admission to the sponsor hospitality tent on Saturday, October 16, get an official Goat Island Yacht Club hat(s) and burgee(s) and your name will be included on our website and on the Sponsor Board at the show.  Captain and Admiral Sponsorship levels receive additional benefits.

Enclosed is a form we’d like you to complete, and return with your sponsorship.  It’s in two parts:

PART B – FRIDAY NIGHT GIYC REGATTA TICKETS
The Goat Island Yacht Club Regatta will be staged under the big tent at the Maritime Park (located in the 700 block beside the museum), on Friday night, October 15.  This event will feature unique live and silent auction items, as well as first-class cuisine and cocktails.  Tickets are $85 per person.  You’ll not want to miss this Georgetown classic event.

Please make your check payable to: Harbor Historical Association PO Box 2228, Georgetown, SC 29442

Thank you,
2021 GWBS Sponsor Committee
