The Opening Day of Boating Season in Seattle, Washington returns on Saturday, May 4th, 2019. This day is a tradition that dates back to 1913, bringing together groups of individuals with a common passion. On this day boats of all sizes line Montlake Cut. Every year, the Seattle Yacht Club chooses a special and unique theme to celebrate. The chosen theme for 2019 is “Boating through the Decades”, bringing lots of opportunity for creativity and surprise.
Opening Day is packed with a variety of fun activities for all ages! The day begins with the Official Parade Boat assembly, followed by an opening ceremony and concert on the Yacht Club lawn. Before the parade begins, two crew races are set to take place. At 12:00pm, the fun really begins with the long awaited parade. Boats will be decorated from bow to stern according to creative themes.
After the celebration, head down to Dock Zero to experience an exhilarating yacht raft up and enjoy the rest of the afternoon!
In 1913, the Montlake Cut opened to Lake Washington and Lake Union. In 1916, the Ballard Locks opened the waters into the Sailish Sea. Since these two occurrences, the lives of boaters has forever changed in the North West.
The Seattle Yacht Club, located on Portage Bay, is nearly 126 years old. The club is considered one of the premier yachting organizations in the world. It is one of Washington’s oldest and most enduring institutions, as it is considered a historic resource.
