Sail Artists & Auction Details


Merging street art and sailing into a visual display of expressive art on the water, the Street Art Regatta (StAR) features painted sails by fifteen artists and an award-winning youth sailing team participating in a live exhibition on the Fort Lauderdale Intracoastal Waterway. The performance takes place on February 9, 2022 from 4 - 6 PM at the Lauderdale Yacht Club.

Street Art thrives because it has a visceral connection to the urban street scene with origins in historic hip hop and contemporary American pop culture. A regatta is a series of competitive boat races dating back to ancient times. Combine the two and you have an event that can only happen in South Florida!

StAR is followed by an art auction featuring five (5) of the painted original sails.  Auction ticket holders will gather at the pool-side pavilion for a tropical-themed casual dinner and cash bar where the sails will be on display and live auction bidding begins at 7 PM.  Proceeds benefit sailing scholarships for youth in South Florida provided by LYCSF and a new student travel abroad scholarship for seniors accepted to college art programs by GAC.
