Teams will be judged on speed and quality. Howev- er, teams also must prove their vessels are seaworthy when their completed boats race in Taylor's Creek. The adult teams compete for the local champion- ship and winners qualify for the national title. For more information or questions to register, visit beaufortchallenge.com. Youths also will build and race in the competition. However, all of their boat parts are pre-cut, and the assembly will be coached by skilled adults. The North Carolina Boat Building Heritage Founda- tion's mission is to preserve the long-standing tradi- tions of wooden boat construction in Carteret County and to promote the highly useful carpentry skills needed in boat construction. Net proceeds from the Beaufort National Boatbuild- ing Challenge are used to provide scholarships to deserving students. This year, full scholarships will be provided to two students to pursue marine studies programs at both Carteret Community College and Cape Fear College.
