All you Sunfish sailors mark your calendars for September 30. The 21st Annual, Bill Deale Memorial, Around Oak Island Sunfish Race is a classic here in Southport – Plan on it.
BUT WAIT……there is more! The Blender Blast at South Harbour Village Marina!
Here is how the Blender Blast works: From 1:00-3:30 on race day we will set up a few tables with a few blenders and make drinks on the fuel dock at South Harbour Village Marina. As the sunfish racers go by, we cheer them on AND offer them a frozen beverage as they sail by. We did this several years ago (before SYC) and it was a real BLAST! Norm Brown, SYC member and assistant dock master at South Harbour Village Marina, has cleared it with the marina and will offer his support and assistance. The marina will also offer dockage on their transient dock so members can come by boat from Southport.
The course will be clockwise around Oak Island. The starting and finishing line will be in the old yacht basin in the vicinity of The Provision Company and The Old American Fish Company. Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place.
