The 2020 Regatta hosted by the Roanoke Island Maritime Museum and the Town of Manteo has been cancelled in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) public health situation. Traditionally, this annual event held in Manteo on the downtown waterfront has 35 – 40 sailors and their families from different areas along the coast of North Carolina racing Optimist, 420, Sunfish, Topaz UNO and Topaz ARGO sailboats.
The Town of Manteo is committed to the health, safety and welfare of our community, volunteers, visitors and staff, so we appreciate your understanding. However, staff are excited to be working on next year’s Regatta scheduled for July 31, 2021. So, mark your calendars, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
