Congratulations to Justin W., who won the Classic Moth Sailboat raffled off as our 2019 fundraiser.

Here’s your opportunity to win a Classic Moth Sailboat

The Classic Moth is a developmental class that was started in North Carolina in the 1920s by a sea captain and a boat builder in Washington, N.C. In this class there are just a few parameters which make it a Moth: The boat must be 11-feet long and have a beam of 5 feet. It can’t weigh less then 75 pounds and must carry 72 square feet of sail. Other then that a Moth can look any way the designed/builder chooses. This boat meets all these requirements, and this 11-foot racer promises to be a real rocket.

The sailboat was built at the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center, across the street from the North Carolina Maritime Museum, by the volunteers and staff of the museum.

Raffle tickets for the boat are available for $5 at the Museum Gift Shop inside the North Carolina Maritime Museum or by calling 252-504-7763.

Proceeds from the raffle go to the Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum to help fund programs at the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center.

The raffle takes place at the Annual Meeting & Holiday Open House for the Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum on December 8, 2019 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Ticket holders need not be present for the raffle, and the winner will be notified if not in attendance.
