WRAL-TV recently sponsored one of the biggest events to ever take place on the North Carolina coast. Americas’ Sail 2006 came to Beaufort and Morehead City during the week of June 30 – July 5, 2006. The WRAL Parade of Sail was a highlight of the celebration, and WRAL-TV brought the event to the Triangle, and the entire state, in live high-definition.
