2020 Got Our Goat!

Official Sponsor Letter and Packages

Ahoy Mates,

Because of the COVID-19 virus the City of Georgetown is not issuing any permits for public events.  With that said, we are unable to hold our traditional Georgetown Wooden Boat Show (GWBS). 

Anyone who has participated in one of our previous Wooden Boat Shows knows this is an event that brings a lot of people, excitement, and business to the merchants of our beautiful coastal city.  The GWBS and the Goat Island Yacht Club (GIYC) Auction, held the night before the show, are the annual fundraisers for the South Carolina Maritime Museum.  These fundraisers are critical to the museum’s continued success and future.  Having the Mariner’s courage and perseverance, we are prepared to weather this storm, and we hope you will be onboard with us.

We are offering an appreciation reception for our sponsors this year—a four-hour voyage similar to The Wooden Boat Show Sponsor Tent and GIYC Auction, all in one.  You will be receiving hats and masks and, of course, be required to follow the health guidelines.

 
For Sponsors who wish to travel through calmer seas and not attend, you will still receive your hats and masks, along with a 2020 GWBS poster signed by artist Cathy Turner.

There is much gratitude and thanks for all the support you have provided our shows these past 30 years and together, and with your continued support, we will sail through this current storm – Keeping Our Maritime Heritage Alive.

Other exciting news: The South Carolina Maritime Museum has the privilege of hosting the Smithsonian Institution’s traveling exhibit, Water/Ways, from September 28, 2020 through November 8, 2020. Keep up to date with exciting related events on our website and social media. We look forward to your visit!

Thank you,
HARBOR HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION

Hope McFaddin
Museum Administrator
