2016 SEAS Water Sports boats makes a splash

It was a beautiful day to celebrate our Independence! SEAS (Sailing Education Association of Sheboygan) had a great day hosting SEAS Water Sports with Sprecher Restaurant & Pub as the sponsor and partnering with EOS Surf Shop.

There were eight pre-built boats and 11 drifter kits built this year. The riverfront was lined with people to watch the creative designs paddle to the finish, some making it and some not.

The Drifter Division was a spectacular sight with some innovative designs this year making an astonishing appearance through three races to finish in the finals.

All the award winners this year received certificates and gift cards from Sprecher Restaurant and Pub.
