Alligator Run Regatta



Waccamaw Sailing Club is excited and pleased to announce the 2024 Alligator Run Regatta, to be held on Saturday and Sunday, April 27 and 28, 2024 with a free welcome party Friday April 26!

This year Alligator Run moves to a new time to be held at the same time as Lake Waccamaw’s Gator Fest so participants can take advantage of food trucks and many family activities being held around the lake.

All classes that can be scored using the Portsmouth Yardstick are welcome – three or more boats of the same class will be scored One-Design, and others will be scored Open Portsmouth. 

Awards will be given based on registered boats – the more boats in a class, the deeper the awards! (See the Notice Of Race for details.) 

Please come out and join us for some great racing, a delicious dinner and fun party, and general sailor-talk around the club. It’s going to be a blast! 

Even if you aren’t racing, we invite members and guests to join us for Saturday’s dinner and social. Dinner-only registration is detailed on the event registration. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

  • Friday, April 26 – Informal welcome, boat set-up, on-site late registration, and casual social 
  • Saturday, April 27 – Final late registrations, continental breakfast, competitors meeting, RACING, social gathering, and dinner
