Captains will be required to take a barge through a challenging course then retrieve a derelict vessel all with their tugboat. Many sizes and styles of tugs will be represented. The public is invited to come see the models and the event and learn a little about the tugboat industry in miniature. If you have a model tug, you are encouraged to bring it and try your hand at tug work.
