Reenactment group looking to teach
Anyone wanting to learn to sail in the Raleigh NC or coastal areas, listen up!
I'm starting a reenactment group for cruisers, sailors and those wanting to learn how to sail. It will be a group that reenacts the 18th century NC sailing community, what the boats were, the art and craft of sailing, what was happening onshore, fishing, merchant fleets, privateers, etc.
This is all in hopes of uniting creating an historical/sailing community in this area where people can get their feet wet and enjoy sailing.
Our plan is to sail to and attend events like Hampton Roads' Blackbeard Festival, Beaufort Pirate Invasion, Charleston Harborfest, etc. Have boat, will travel! Got a boat? Bring it along!
Anyone interested in joining or just following our progress, please check out our site at TAYLOR'S NAVY (Cary, NC) - Meetup.com
Note: At present, this is a charitable/educational organization for those interested in the above. We do not have 501c3 status yet, but it's a possibility.
Thanks, and happy cruising!
