Stephen C. Smith Memorial Regatta
As Wakulla County's longest-running festival, the Steve C. Smith Memorial Regatta benefits the American Cancer Society and is held each year in memory of Stephen Smith, a local sailor who died from a rare form of leukemia at the age of 29. With hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for charity over the years, the nationally renowned event -- which began in 1973 -- features races for yachts, sailboats, catamarans and windsurfers. The festival attracts local food and art vendors, and is also highlighted by an enormous auction.
Registration begins on Saturday morning at 8:30 AM.
