Day at the Docks 2017

Image
Day at the Docks was started to celebrate the "Spirit of Hatteras" when the village recovered from Hurricane Isabel in 2003 as an intact community, anchored by the commercial and charter fisherman. The event is a confirmation of the strength of community, heritage, and living traditions of the waterman.

On this Day in Hatteras History

At 3 a.m. Rasmus Midgett was on beach patrol headed southward from Gull Shoals Lifesaving Station when he came upon items washed ashore. Following the debris for nearly two miles, he heard cries of men about 100 yards offshore, who were stranded aboard what was left of the Priscilla. With no time to call for assistance, Rasmus directed each of the men off of the wreckage and assisted them in swimming to shore. Though completely exhausted, Rasmus was able to rescue all 10 crewmen, including Captain Benjamin E. Springsteen.
