The 12th Anniversary of the Annual Southport Wooden Boat Show will be held on Saturday, November 6th, 2021, in & around the historic Old Yacht Basin in Southport, from 10a.m. until 4:00p.m.
he In-Water event will end at 3:30 p.m. for the Awards Ceremony at 4:00 p.m. at the corner of Caswell & Moore Streets in front of the SWBS Sponsor Board. Our tradition continues with boats On-Land and In-Water, with visitors able to meet and talk with wooden boat makers and owners, and to vote for their favorite boat entrant in the People’s Choice Award. With nautical & maritime demonstrations planned along the waterfront, and more vendors expected at this year’s show, we’re anticipating an even bigger show than last year.
Children Activities will return to this year’s show under the tutelage of the NC Maritime Museum of Southport’s Nauti-Kids program. The little sailors will be able to build their own boats and test their sea-worthiness, learn rope making, learn to sail in a static display and learn from exhibits by the North Carolina Aquarium and The Ft Fisher Underwater Archeology Branch as part of the day’s activities.
