On the pavillion, there will be music and you’ll meet Ike, our resident sea turtle and marine debris ambassador, whom we will be releasing into the Gulf Stream this summer.

After the race we’ll have our ceremonial releasing of a loggerhead sea turtle back to the ocean. right off our beach and next to the pier–with our partners the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.
