Members of the Continental Congress signaled their intent to sever their political ties to England in 1776. But there was only way for word to reach those who lived along North Carolina’s barrier islands: by boat. The Great 4th Race celebrates the historic voyages that carried the news of the signing of the Declaration of Independence to the Outer Banks. Participation is open to the public but entry is limited to open sailboats of traditional design.
