Classic Moth Boat Outreach Event

The venerable Carolina Yacht Club, Charleston, South Carolina.

The Classic Moth Boat sailors in the Charleston, South Carolina area are planning a day of Classic Moth Outreach in an attempt to attract more sailors to their fleet.  A great idea in my book.  Plan to attend if you're in the area that day:
