Abstract:
Captain Horatio Sinbad, North Carolina's only officially commissioned privateer, set sail from Beaufort in 2002, bound for Jamaica to compete in the Class B race at America's Sail. He returned with a 100-pound trophy and the right to choose the final port of the next tall ships race in 2006. He chose his home port of Beaufort. Wright describes the activities of this tall ships event which runs from June 30 to July 4. Around 250,000 visitors are expected. Class A ships will dock in Morehead City. Class B ships will dock in Beaufort at the new floating docks being built as part of the $60 to $80 million Olde Beaufort Seaport, a living history maritime village that will expand the facilities of the North Carolina Maritime Museum.

Abstract:
Heritage tourism, or visiting an area for cultural and natural enrichment, is one of the fastest growing segments of the state's second largest industry, tourism. Using the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area as an example, Wright discusses what is involved in securing a heritage designation. The Blue Ridge area covers twenty-five western North Carolina counties. Other heritage initiatives include ecotourism, such as the North Carolina Birding Trail, and a movement to save the rapidly disappearing heritage of the Southern mill towns, the Southwide Textile Heritage Initiative.
