The boatbuilding competition features teams of two battling each other, and the clock, to build a 12 foot rowing skiff within a four hour time window. The teams are judged on speed, workmanship, and rowing speed when they test their completed boats in a rowing relay following the build.
According to Rob Dwelley of Wooden Boat Magazine, “This is the Superbowl of boatbuilding. Only those who have seen it can begin to understand what drives these men and their thousands of annual spectators.”

DeBordieu Colony is a very private community on the coast of South Carolina, between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, just south of Pawleys Island. In addition to miles of secluded beach, boat landing access to North Inlet, and a 24-hour manned security gate, the private, equity DeBordieu Club offers Pete Dye golf, a tennis center and an ocean front Beach Club with fine dining, a gazebo bar, two pools, and a playground. There is truly no place like DeBordieu. Come see for yourself.
