Wooden boats of all types are welcome.
Not all entries are picture perfect, we hope to have some boats that are still under construction or in the process of a major overhaul.
The stories behind the boat and information about the builders are important to us and we encourage our visitors to share a yarn or two.
Prizes are awarded in several categories; sail, power, row/paddle.
We have many vendors, boat building for children, a pirate or two and a chowder cook off.
It is a tremendous community event.
Come rain or shine!
