The East End Classic Boat Society hosts local marine events, exhibits classic boats, and conducts workshops to teach the skills necessary to build and preserve quality, handcrafted wooden boats. We're proud of our young organization, staffed entirely by volunteers, because we fulfill our purpose.
We are just learning of events that are being scheduled post-pandemic for the summer. We will update the list as needed.
