Description: The Waterman Hall of Fame was created to reflect the importance of community spirit and personal contributions within the culture of water sports and professions throughout the history of Wrightsville Beach. It is a celebration of watermen and women who represent sportsmanship both in and out of the water. Those we recognize with this award exemplify the best of Wrightsville Beach in their character, demeanor, and spirit both in competition and in their respect for the community. The Hall of Fame is intended to be a lasting tribute to the achievements of the generations of Wrightsville Beach watermen and women who have shaped this community and its relationship with the water.
The Hall of Fame Celebration will be held 1 PM – 4 PM, on Sunday, October 15, at the Blockade Runner Beach Resort, Wrightsville Beach.
The program will include induction of the Class of 2017, a time of remembrance for the watermen and women who have been lost in the past year, a slide show of the inductees, and a silent auction to benefit the museum. Cash bar, light refreshments, and live music, The names and information on any fallen watermen should be sent to Skipper Funderburg [skipper_funderburg@yahoo.com].
