Need something to do down the Shore this weekend? Don’t worry, we have you covered.
Chip Miller Surf Fest
This big, all-ages competition, named after the late Carlisle/O.C. Corvette guy, is so popular, it might be too late to sign up — but not to watch from the boards.

This restored, 1928, Jersey-based oyster-dredging schooner is offering daily kids’, history, and wine and cheese sails, and is generally the ultimate Shore experience.
