This small boat messabout is only in its second year, and it looks as though they could have upwards of a hundred boats there this year.
Heres a posting I copied from Hostess Jackie Monies on Sail Oklahomas yahoo group
Wish I was going, Three top small boat designers to talk to, 100 boats to drool over, the Puddleduck Racer worlds, and Jackie Monies' cookout.
>> Exciting news! We will have three famous small boat designers, John Welsford of New Zealand, Jim Michalak of Illinois, and Graham Byrnes of North Carolina, all participating in Sail Oklahoma! this October. Their boats and builders will be featured all weekend along with the designers, who will participate in all activities.
From October 6 through October 10, builders and sailors will have the opportunity to not only meet the famed designers but sail, eat and talk with them- a rare opportunity. On Friday nite, October 7 we will have a campfire program called "Ask the Designers Night"- sort of a Town Hall with boat questions.
Go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SailOklahoma/ for more information or to register to attend. This is a free event, open to anyone, a boat is not necessary to come!
We invite owners of all Welsford, Michalak or B and B boats to bring their boats to Sail Oklahoma! However, if you just WANT to build a boat, you are welcome to come and join us. There are lots of boats to see, talk about, look at, take photos of. You are certainly welcome to bring a boat by another designer as well. All boats are welcomed along with their owners/sailors.
Come join us.
Jackie and Mike Monies-hosts
