Landings Harbor and Delegal Creek Marina are bustling with activity this summer. As you know, it has been an extremely sweltering summer. Remember to drink plenty of water and put on sunscreen. We have an ample supply of both items in the Landings Harbor Store! We also have a great selection of Live by the Tides, Altered Latitudes and Aftco gear. Don’t forget about the stylish visors with The Landings’ logo on them! Both Marinas are fully stocked with bait, ice, and refreshments. On weekends and holidays, you can stop by the Snack Shack at the Harbor and grab a quarter-pound Nathans Hot dog and single-serve cups of Leopold’s ice cream. Craving ice cream on a Tuesday? Don’t worry; we stock Leopold’s year-round in our ship stores at both Marinas!
The annual dredging of Landings Harbor basin will be going on for most of the month. When visiting the Harbor, please be extra cautious of pipes and other potential hazards. A majority of dredging will take place at night, so if you don’t see them out working, don’t worry, that means they worked through the night and are resting! Barring any unforeseen issues, the dredging should be completed by the end of the month.
The Marinas continue to offer regular Sunset Cruises on the Wilmington River. Check our calendar (www.landings.org/calendar) for available trips. The Landings Harbor Annual Fishing Tournament will be held Saturday, August 3. For this event, the Marinas partner with the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) to offer the best possible fishing experience. Fishing tournament prizes will be awarded for the highest aggregate weight (any three fish), the largest Spanish Mackerel (adult and youth), the largest crab weight (single crab), and highest aggregate weight (10 crabs). This will be a family-fun tournament for The Landings. I encourage everyone to sign up and take advantage of this outdoor activity on the water.
On Saturday, August 24, Landings Harbor will take part in the annual Low Country Hook Race. This race starts at Harbor Town Yacht Basin in Hilton Head, and sailboats of all kinds go out into the Atlantic to race south in a “hook” shape, down into the Wassaw Sound, and then up the Wilmington River. The event concludes at Landings Harbor, where participants will enjoy drinks, dinner, and awards as they share their ocean race experiences.
Until next time, I’ll see you around the Marinas!
