This annual classic regatta for ‘Pirates Only’ is sponsored by the owners of the Provision Company and it always falls on the last weekend in October, which, if you hadn’t already noticed, coincides with Halloween! The Provision Company makes it fun by requiring captains AND crew to all dress in pirate costumes for the captains meeting, the race, and the award ceremony/Pirates Ball. The Pirates Ball marks the end of the season for the Provision Company and it has become a Southport classic. There is always a great band, lots of pirates/wenches, awards and just good ole fun. The lines can be long… so come early. The Notice of Race and Registration Form (when available) can be found through a link at the bottom of the Provision Company Website (http://www.provisioncompany.com/). See you thar mate, Arrrrrggh!
