The Great Biloxi Schooner Race
The Great Biloxi Schooner Mayor’s Cup will set sail tomorrow from the schooner pier on Point Cadet Plaza in Biloxi.
The Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum, along with the Biloxi Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, will host this free, community-wide event. It’s all to provide a chance for people to experience the beauty of sailing these historic vessels.
The best part is that Biloxi Mayor ‘FoFo’ Gilich and D’Iberville Mayor Rusty Quave will go head-to-head in this sailing regatta competition. Mayor Gilich will be captain of the ‘Mike Sekul’ and Mayor Quave will be captain of the ‘Glen L. Swetman’ both of which names make up part of the Gulf Coast Maritime History.
