Over the past few months I have been helping to put together Bainbridge Islandâ€™s first ever wooden boat festival. We have a great group of Bainbridge Island boats that will be open to the public and even better, the weather forecast on Saturday is for sun!
When: June 4th 10-5pm & June 5th 10-2pm
Where: Harbor Pub Marina on the dock just below The Pub.Â The Pub will also be hosting a cash bar on the pier after 6pm, if you'd like to join us for a drink in the evening.Â
What: The Bainbridge Island Wooden Boat Festival â€œBIWBF â€œ is a weekend celebration of the islandâ€™s distinguished history of wooden boat building, design and preservation.Â The BIWBF will host a 30 â€“ 40 boat fleet of sail, power, workboats and tenders. Tour the boats, hear the sea stories, the music and a lively session of maritime lore. It is an opportunity to meet the ownerâ€™s builders, designers and assorted characters from our islandâ€™s treasured wooden boat community. Saturday afternoon discussion group will be held, as well as live music, and food.
Cost: Free Admission!
I hope you can come.Â Iâ€™ll be hosting on the boat Araminta, so stop by and say hello!
