Nail & Sail Competition

The Nail & Sail is the highlight of the weekend. The contest pits brain against brawn as teams attempt to build and navigate a seaworthy craft around a short, but treacherous course. Entrants compete for such awards as “First to Sink” and “Ugliest Boat”.

Sandcastle Competition

Your sand-building skills can be showcased at this year’s “Fun in the Sand” sand sculpture competition event.

The Tiki Swim

Tiki swimmers begin their adventure with a mass start that takes them out and around the city of Oceanside’s iconic fishing pier. Once past the pier, our swimmers turn north for a fast and straight swim towards the Oceanside Harbor.


There is FREE parking in downtown Oceanside at Oceanside Transit Center Parking . Garage (located at Cleveland St. and Seagaze Dr.) with free shuttle service from the North County Transit Center.
