    Great 4th Race

    Location:
    Start Date: 07/11/2020 | End Date: 07/11/2020
    Start Time: | End Time:

    Celebrate Independence Day with this unique sailing competition that incorporates a little bit of local history into the festivities. The Great 4th Race is a fast-paced race among traditionally-rigged sailing craft that takes place in the heart of Beaufort, and which is sure to be a thrilling activity for participants, and a thrilling sight for visitors.

     

    The Great 4th Race pays homage to the roots of America’s independence, but on a much smaller and close-to-home scale. The traditional sailing vessels will rally to mark the historic voyages of boats to the Outer Banks that carried the news of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and as such, a patriotic theme abounds throughout the lightly competitive event. The fleet of competing boats will be visible along the waters of Taylor’ Creek – on the edge of Downtown Beaufort – and spectators are welcome to find a perch or a sunny bench along the waterfront to watch the fast-paced procession, and / or cheer on their favorites. (Potential participants are also welcome, and interested competitors can contact the North Carolina Maritime Museum for more info.) With plenty of fun and patriotic spirit, the Great 4th Race is a fine way to celebrate America’s independence in the small town of Beaufort, NC.
