We are optimistic that the pandemic will be under control, so we plan to head to Cape Charles.   The overnight in Cape Charles includes a fantastic party (this may be slimmed down depending on the pandemic guidelines) at the Oyster Farm Marina at King's Creek, including great food, music, dancing, first day awards, and camaraderie with fellow racers.  Plus get ready for another day of exciting racing back to Buckroe Beach on Sunday. There are daily and overall winners, so anyone can win.  There are many raffles and silent auctions going on during the festivities to give you a chance to win prizes and support our donation. 


The race doesn't happen by magic. If you want to help with the race, volunteers are welcomed. Go to our Volunteers page and you can post your availability to the Forum or you can send a private email to the CCC Contacts.
