Coming Events in Oriental and in and near Pamlico County

Instead Of Football Regatta, Jan 1 2020

On January 1, a lot of Oriental gets out on the water – as an alternative to watching football on TV. This New Year’s Day, 2020, will be the running of the 27th Annual Instead of Football Regatta.

Meet at Oriental Marker SC1 at noon, New Year’s Day. Warning horn at 11:55a. The Regatta’s a great way to take in the first day of the year. You can sail, you can motor. No one’s really keeping score. (See race coverage, here.)

The official optional “mandatory” Skippers’ Meeting is after the race at 3p at The Silos. Bring a small wrapped gift, wither nautical or fun (re-gifting is perfectly acceptable) for the drawings. All boats participating are included. Must be present to win.

If the race is cancelled due to weather – the Skipper’s meeting is still on. For more info, contact Nelda Coats 252-639-1616 – neldacoats@gmail.com.

Course: Start at Oriental Marker SC#1, Adams Creek #1, Garbacon #7, finish at Oriental Mark SC1. Sailing direction/course change announced on Channel 72 prior to start.
