Instead of (Football) Regatta
Oriental #1 Marker

January 1, 2019 Sailors in a sailing town need very little excuse to leave seats in front of television sets and get out on the water. The New Year's Day traditional regatta accepts any motorboats, sailboats, small aircraft, and homemade helicopters willing to meet when the countdown begins at Channel One Marker near Oriental Harbor at noon, wind or no wind. A mandatory Skippers' Meeting takes place after the race where prizewinners are selected (by creative means) and feted. Questions may be addressed to Nelda Coats at (252) 636-1616.
