Anacortes Waterfront Festival – June 4 & 5
The annual Anacortes Waterfront Festival will be held on Saturday/Sunday (June 4 & 5). As in the past, the Anacortes Yacht Club has been asked to provide free boat rides. This is the largest outreach event to the community sponsored by our club. We will be promoting our support of the high school sailing team during the festival. If our customers would like, they will be able to donate $$$ to the team.
As a member of the Anacortes Yacht Club, I would ask for you to consider volunteering for this year’s Festival. Opportunities are:
- Hospitality Escort – take each group to their respective boats prior to departure
- Registration – register riders and provide credentials
- Dockhands – help load/unload passengers and retrieve/launch boats
Boat rides will last approximately 45 minutes on Fidalgo Bay. First session time is from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM on both days and second session runs from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM on Saturday / 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM on Sunday. Two ways to register as a participant:
We will be hosting a volunteer “Thank You BBQ” on Sunday at 5:30 PM. Yes, the bar will be open at 4:30 PM.
Questions, comments, or suggestions … I can be reached on my mobile phone at (360)724-8982.
Thank you for your consideration to participate in this year’s event. Lots of fun for a good cause!!
