A boat show featuring a variety of sail and motor vessels is scheduled for May 19 and 20 at Windmill Harbour, the Hilton Head Island residential community near the bridges to the mainland. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
The boat show, once an annual event in Windmill Harbour, is returning after a several-year hiatus.
Along with about two dozen boats -- including fishing boats, luxury cruising yachts, large sailboats and three Chris Crafts -- organizers plan other events. Local artists will display marine-inspired art works. A U.S. Coast Guard team will demonstrate a helicopter water rescue and Bluffton firefighters will show how the fast-attack fire truck at the community's marina operates. On May 20, Sun City Hilton Head's model sailboat club will stage a regatta with their scale-model boats.
Admission is $10 per person each day and parking is free. No entry to the show by water is allowed.
