Opening Day of Boating - Sponsored by S.Y.C.
Saturday May 2nd, 2015

Opening Day, the official  opening of
Seattle's boating  season sponsored
by the  Seattle Yacht Club, includes
a celebration of many kinds of water
activities. Festivities  will include a
morning of crew  races, a sailboat
race, and of  course, the Grand
Opening  Day Boat Parade on

Opening Day offers some outstanding photo and story opportunities. You'll not find anything like it in the U.S. or to our knowledge, in the world. The only thing comparable is an annual parade of commercial vessels in Venice, Italy. Click here for more details including logboom information.
