This summer visitors to Ocracoke have an opportunity to learn more about island sailing traditions at the Community Square docks.
Free dockside presentations are scheduled for three times a week aboard the skipjack Wilma Lee.
Sponsored by the Ocracoke Island non-profit organization, Ocracoke Alive, the talks include the following:
Tuesdays at 11 a.m.: "The Story of the Wilma Lee" Take a tour and learn about this beautiful historic wooden boat with Tom Pahl.
Wednesdays at 1 p.m.: "Pirate Tales & Fiddle Music" True lies and lotsa "arrrrr." with Captain Rob & Fiddler Dave.
Thursdays at 11 a.m.: "Sailboats on the Sound" Hear salty tales and learn about the colorful history of sailing vessels on Pamlico Sound with Philip Howard.
Programs will take about 1/2 hour and are free to the public. Come to the docks at the Community Square where you'll find the Wilma Lee.
Content and schedule are subject to change.
