Oyster Festival 2009 Takes Place on Land and Sea

Local sailors will take part in this year’s First Annual Oyster Festival Regatta Oct. 17 and 18. Last year the race was a Match race with professional racers creating excitement out in the harbor as two by two they raced each other in positioning their boats best to race around a buoy.
