Saturday, July 4th Grayton Beach
Registration at 8am on Grayton Beach | Captain's meeting at 11am

This is a July 4th weekend tradition held on Grayton Beach each year. Always a colorful and action-packed day on the beach filled with sails, friends and fun. Local sailors gather for the legendary Rags to Riches Regatta, a Hobie Cat Race with a course between Grayton Beach and Seagrove. More than a dozen captains show up with their crew and 16-foot Hobies to negotiate the famously rowdy Gulf.  Cold beer & tee-shirts available for spectators to purchase. All proceeds benefit the South Walton Artificial Reef Association. This South Walton July tradition is organized by Grayton Beer Company.

"Everyone in Grayton Beach thought of themselves as poor," Charlie Thornton recalls, "and they went by 'rags.' The folks in Seagrove were all better off, so they went by 'riches.' So that year we called it the Rags to Riches Regatta. The next year we sailed from Seagrove to Grayton, and would call it Riches to Rags." read more at http://www.sowal.com/story/rags-to-riches-regatta-returns-to-grayton-beach
