Vintage boat show will be held in Springs on Sunday

Vintage-style hand-crafted wooden boats will be on display in the water on Sunday when the East End Classic Boat Society holds its annual boat meet at Accabonac Harbor in Springs.

The meet will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the beach at the end of Louse Point Road. There is no admission charge and East Hampton Town parking permit restrictions for the area have been lifted for the day.

Ray Hartjen, president of the society, said: “Attendees should bring their own beach umbrellas and edibles.”

He added people with boats are invited to sail or trailer their boats to the meet.

Among the craft at anchor will be a restored 12-foot Beetle Cat, a class of boat first manufactured in 1921, and a 19-foot Buzzards Bay gaff-rigged sloop and a Pooduck skiff the club is raffling off.

Boats will be available for taking a sail and for close inspection.
