    In memory of Colleen Wagner, co-founder of CWB, a Sailpast will be held on Lake Union by The Old Boathouse near the Aurora Bridge, where the Wagners first started CWB over 40 years ago.

    Boats wishing to participate in the parade should rendezvous in South Lake Union in front of CWB by 2:45pm. The sailpast departs CWB at 3pm and will proceed north along the east side of Lake Union, turning west in front of Gasworks Park, turning around at the Aurora Bridge to sail past The Old Boathouse, then traveling south on the west side of Lake Union. Public moorage will be available for boats on the north and west walls of MOHAI.

    Due to safety and health concerns around COVID-19, CWB will not be holding a reception on site after the sailpast.

    Please RSVP on the Center for Wooden Boats website.

    The official event has been canceled, the Event chair and family will not be going. There are some limitations in place that will effect the enjoyment factor.  Evidently there are some people who are still considering going.

    Please contact Dick Dow if you are still planning on going, he can offer some updates and good advice regarding lodging and places to eat, and help coordinate.

    In the past, the schedule was to depart the Manson Park boat ramp with your boat 9:00 AM the Wednesday before the M & M weekend.  Most people arrive Tuesday and stay at Campbell's Resort the night before. Enjoy the magnificent scenery during the 55 mile 2 1/2 hour trip to Stehekin National Park.  The event is in the planing stages, lodging and restaurant choices need to be confirmed.

    Unfortunately we're not able to have our dinner this year as the numbers would exceed the state's Covid19 rules.

    We will ask the Seattle Yacht Club’s Admirals to attend and update us on the 2021 opening day of boating season events. Winners of our virtual boat show will be announced. We will also present awards  to boaters who actually had an opportunity to use their boats.

    Finally, we will install new officers for the upcoming year. Please join in. More information to follow.
