The museum’s annual Wooden Boat Show Round the Island Race is a non-stop race around the Carrot Island and Bird Shoals. All traditionally rigged sailing craft are welcome. 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.
