More than 220 teams representing colleges from 25 states are participating in the 19th annual High Tide College Spring Break Ultimate Frisbee Tournament now through March 27 at the North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex.
High Tide is the largest college spring break ultimate frisbee tournament in the world. It has come to North Myrtle Beach after many successful years in Georgia. The event includes four weekly tournaments running Monday through Thursday throughout March, enabling it to accommodate all college spring break periods. Each team will stay an average of four nights in North Myrtle Beach.
Ultimate Frisbee is a limited-contact team field sport played with a flying disc (frisbee). Points are scored by passing the frisbee to a teammate in the opposing team’s end zone. Other basic rules require that players must maintain a pivot and not take steps while holding the disk, and interceptions and incomplete passes are turnovers.
For more information, contact Matt Gibbons, superintendent of Recreation & Sports Tourism, at 843-280-5574 or via email at jmgibbons@nmb.us.

Flotilla 12-2 Grand Strand will hold the About Boating Safely Class twice in March.
The first will be on Saturday, March 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The boating class will be held at the North Myrtle Beach Community Center at 1030 Possum Trot Road in North Myrtle Beach.
The second class will be on Saturday, March 21, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. This class will be held at the Conway Fitness Center at 1515 Millpond Road in Conway. The course, About Boating Safely, is certified by South Carolina DNR and graduates will be awarded the South Carolina Boater Education Card.
In South Carolina, boaters under 16 years of age are required by law to pass an approved boater education course before operating, without supervision, a personal watercraft (PWC) or a boat powered by a motor with 15 hp or more.
Course fee is $30 per person or $40 for two family members sharing the same boating manual. Students under the age of 14 years must be accompanied by an adult enrolled in the class. Class size is limited.

The boating course is designed for boaters of all ages and experience with an emphasis on recreational boating safety and is taught by trained U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary instructors. You will learn what to do before you get underway and the basics of protecting and handling your boat or PWC safely. Also included are waterways navigation, safety equipment, boating problems and emergencies and legal requirements for boating in South Carolina.
Many insurance companies offer discounts to graduates of the boating education course.
A component of the U.S. Coast Guard, the Coast Guard Auxiliary is staffed by civilian volunteers who provide support for most of the Coast Guard missions. The Auxiliary promotes recreational boating safety through public education classes and offers free vessel safety checks for recreational boaters.
