Welcome to the North Carolina Coastal and Piedmont Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society

Welcome antique and classic boat enthusiasts!

20 June 2021 Message regarding July 17th "boat show":

Hello Fellow members, as you have hopefully noted in our newsletter, we will be having a low-key boat show at Blackbeard Sailing Club (BSC). The plan calls for members’ boats to be shown on land and water at the facility from 10:00 til whenever we want to go. For those of you who are unfamiliar, BSC offers plenty of land and water space, including a launch ramp on site. There is also a bath house with toilets and showers, a picnic shelter with grills, tables and chairs and it is located on Lower Broad Creek just off the Neuse River. There is also a grill located at the adjoining golf course if you choose to eat lunch out.  Alternately you could bring a lunch or grill something.

I would really like to see a good turnout for this and hopefully use it as a building block in helping us foster a good relationship with BSC. As I stated, this will be more of a showing of boats as opposed to a full-blown boat show. There will be no judging or awards, or a formal dinner, although we are planning a meet and greet at 3 PM with chapter supplied beer, wine and snacks. I do think it will be a lot of fun at a great venue, giving us a chance to display our boats and do some riding around. Giving rides is definitely encouraged too!

To help with the planning, I would like to hear from those of you who will be attending and whether you would prefer land or water display. Don’t miss this opportunity to show off you boat and hang with your fellow members! A prompt reply is greatly appreciated since we must advise BSC regarding the space needed and plans for overnight dockage or storage. Also, there is limited space for camping and RVs for your convenience.
