The most cost-effective accommodation is to stay onsite at Camp Sea Gull.  Housing is in open-air cabins with a full bathroom and plenty of green space for enjoying a riverfront view. Wake up in the morning with your Opti and breakfast located 100 feet away. You can see our cabins and our virtual tour here

Early arrivals will be available on Thursday, September 21 by appointment. Friday, September 22 will include check-in for housing at Camp, a practice race, check-in for competitors and coach/support boat flags. Racing will be held on September 23 and 24 and will include a GreenFleet.

If a hotel or rental house is more comfortable, please see a list of area lodging. Note that many of these locations are a 20-30 minute drive from Camp. If you stay off-site you can purchase a meals and activities package at Camp through the accommodations form.


Coastal Carolina Regional Airport (EWN) in New Bern, N.C. is about 30 minutes from Camp Sea Gull. We have shuttles available for the airport upon request. These requests can be made on your accommodations form.
