On Saturday, hundreds gathered at Nauticus to celebrate our sailing center for the second annual SailFest: Regatta and Pier Party. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, Cofer Cup teams, event attendees and the community we are excited to report more than $55,000 was raised to support the Sail Nauticus Academy, a free STEM and leadership development program for students in Hampton Roads.

Stay tuned for 2024 event details.
