2017 World Duckboat Championship Regatta

Tuckerton Seaport & Baymen’s Museum proudly participated again this year in the World Duckboat Championship Regatta.  On Friday, August 25th, the Seaport entered 3 Seaport-built duckboats in the race: Tuck Duck, Calcasieu, and Lewiston captained by 3 great young sailors from the Surf City Yacht Club.  Each year we are very impressed by the skill and effort of the Surf City Yacht Club Sailing Program.  We hope this partnership will continue to grow into the future.  Of the 69 entries, the Seaport duckboats finished in 6th (Tuck Duck), 14th (Calcasieu), and 16th (Lewiston).  Held at the Mantoloking Yacht Club, the World Duckboat Championship Charity Regatta is an annual event to which the Seaport looks forward.
