2014 Sunfish Worlds
The best Sunfish Sailors from around the world will be on the wide Neuse River at Camp Sea Gull , just 10 miles from Oriental, NC for the Sunfish Youth Championship (October 9-12) and the Sunfish World Championship (October 11-17). The camps along the Neuse River have taught generations of sailors and introduced thousands to our sailing paradise along the Neuse River.
You may recognize the names of some of the entrants that live in or regularly compete in events in Oriental, the Sailing Capital of NC.
Sunfish Sailors and Families visiting the Inner Banks of NC can enjoy everything from pizza, to steaks and fresh local seafood in one of Orientals Restaurants. There’s an art gallery and shopping for just about anything you may need or that perfect gift.
Speaking of shopping. Want to take a 2014 Sunfish Worlds boat home? You can but you will have to wait till after the awards ceremony. Triton Yatchs in Oriental will be selling these great race ready boats (click for details).

Oriental, NC – May 30- June 1, 2014
Welcome Sunfish sailors, friends and families to our home town, Oriental, NC.
If this is your first visit, you will probably be back again. Just ask anyone in town how they ended up in Oriental and the answer will be similar to “we came in by boat and loved the town”, “I was sailing in a regatta with a friend” or “ I was looking for a boat and kept coming back”. If you need to find anything while you are visiting, just ask anybody in town or stop by the shop and we will try to help.
The weather forecast for the wide Neuse River is looking good for Saturday and Sunday’s races.
Join Sue at the tent on the lawn on Saturday to see her unique and creative wreaths. If you have seen our 1906 building decorated for Christmas or noticed one of the wreaths in our shop, you have seen Sue’s handiwork.
Is your story told with one of these wreaths that feature sea shells, sail boats, wine corks and even favorite teams. Do you have a special request? Sue can help with a wreath designed just for you.
Didn’t make it to the exhibit? Stop in our shop to see some of Sue’s Wreaths or to talk about a custom wreath.
This is what revolutionary design looks like
One of the most important characteristics of the Keira watering cans is the fact that it is an eco product in the full sense of the word. It’s not just that it is a watering can manufactured out of 100 percent recyclable material, Keira’s patented stackable ensures lower transport and storage costs–costs that are nine times lower than other garden cans of similar size. This design innovation creates Keira’s small footprint and contributes positively to our environment with reduced fuel costs.
