Beach Regatta Barbecue
Sat Aug 7th, Canadian Hole
(** first parking lot with bathrooms)
As an organization, we have accomplished so much in two short years. It is time to pat ourselves on the back, relax, and have a little fun.
All club members, sailors, parents, and friends are invited to a fun end of season sailing party at Canadian Hole. We have much to celebrate. Many, many sailors have gone from never stepping foot on a sailboat to independent optimist sailing. Several of us have attended regional regattas, and we’ve even earned some trophies.
Please invite all your family and friends to come out and celebrate with us. Our club has lots of news, announcements, and awards to hand out. Don’t miss this fun event.

Pork BBQ and something sweet.
Couple things as we all consider the party:
— we are sort of squatting on the park. Jay has some concern that we didn’t ask for a permit ahead of time, but as this was a last minute decision…here we are.
— with that said, please keep in mind that we are there as park patrons and let’s try not to be too obnoxious! No one wants to get in trouble with the park service or make a bad name for Hatteras Sailing.
