Opening Day Celebration at Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes, Washington.

Opening Day of Boating will soon be here! I don’t know about you, but those beautiful days of sunshine we had last week have got us really excited about getting out on the water.

At our home port in Anacortes, Washington, the Opening Day of Boating Celebration takes place on May 5,  2018, at Cap Sante Marina. Festivities start at 11 a.m. and include words of welcome, a burgee presentation, a ribbon cutting for the new party barge, a boat parade, chowder at Anthony’s Cabana, and more.

Rain makes everything green, but this first Saturday in May signals the start of bluer skies, fairer seas and reminds us all to get ready to be out on the water!
