The Around the Island Race is a non-stop race around the Islands that form the harbor in Beaufort. All wooden traditionally rigged sailing craft are welcome. Traditional Small Craft Association meeting and continental breakfast at 8 a.m. The race committee will establish the race course to suit wind and weather conditions and announce it a skippers meeting Sunday morning at 0900 hours on the Watercraft Center docks. 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. Chase boats will be escorting the fleet, but self-sufficiency should be the goal of each boat crew.
