orth Carolina State University, along with Bow to Stern Sailing, has been organizing regattas in Oriental since 2015. After Hurricane Florence swept through, NC State Sailing organized a regatta and community clean-up event. Dana Magliola, NC State Sailing head coach said they, “hope to contribute to the recovery of this community that’s supported us so passionately for many years.”
