Vendors sought for marine market event

Gloucester City Sail, based in the New Jersey river town, is holding its first Nautical Gear and Crafts Market to raise funds for its marine training programs held aboard the 57-foot schooner North Wind.

Organizers of the event, set for May 22 on the Gloucester City waterfront, across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, are looking for vendors.

The market will provide an outlet for marine industry businesses and private individuals to sell overstocked, new and used marine equipment. A raffle will also be held with items donated by local businesses and participating vendors.

"We're excited to be able to put together this event for the boating community in our region," said Bob Bevan, president of Gloucester City Sail's board of directors, in a statement. "It will be a great way for visitors to come out to find some bargains to outfit their boats before they get on the water this year. It's also a great way for us to let people know who we are so they can help support our programs in the future."
