Freedom Sail & Raft-Up



After the parade in town has concluded AYC sailors will begin to gather on Fidalgo Bay for the Freedom Sail,  a fun high-spirited event which will have racers starting at 3:00PM.

Race Committee will be using VHF 72 to coordinate.

Following the race, look for a raft up of AYC boats in a position offshore of Seafarers Park at a reasonable depth and clear of the firework barge standoff requirements. Cruisers welcome! Bring dinghies and extra bumpers, cool drinks and food to share! We hope to enjoy your good patriotic fellowship and watch the fireworks show all together!


Awards will include recognizing 1st, 2nd 3rd per Class breaks. But there will also be awards for “Best in Show” (most Patriotic themed boat) and a few other fun categories! Including the crowning of the 2018 AYC Lady of Liberty!

Hope to see you out there!!
