Look Out Shoot Out Boat Race Series 2015

What started out as a boyhood passion has become one of the most popular events on the Morehead City Waterfront. A small group of volunteers put together an event for the locals and invited guests and participants from as far away as Florida. We welcome everyone to the Crystal Coast, one of the most beautiful coasts on the east coast. Let’s take a ride in our boats for a good cause.

NC East Sports, a non-profit organization, is dedicated to engage, gather and inspire family, friends and visitors of all ages from all over the country to the Crystal Coast, focusing on local support for a seasonal community and provide an action pact event for participants and spectators and boating enthusiasts.
