We've moved the 2013 Wild Oyster Regatta to November 9-10, 2013, with an informal afternoon on the water clinic / practice hosted by Greg Fisher on November 8 starting around 2 p.m.
We changed the dates for the regatta to avoid conflicts with the Annapolis Frigid Digit, the Championship of Champions in Columbia and the Bluenose in Tennessee.
In 2014, the regatta will likely be on the 4th weekend in October. We'll announce the date for 2014 after consulting with the other fleets.
Thank you for your support. We've had 37 and 39 boats the past 2 years and are looking forward to another great regatta in 2013.
Continuing with tradition, the regatta will be on the 3rd weekend in October. That’s October 19-20, 2013 at the Carolina Yacht Club in Charleston, SC.
