Rags to Riches Regatta 17 Video

July 16, 2012 by SoWal Staff

This year's Rags To Riches Regatta took place on Grayton Beach on Sunday, July 1, 2012. It was a colorful and action-packed SoWalcom-sponsored tradition residents and visitors love to take part in and make memories.

"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
