Seattle Boat Season Opening Day

May 3, 2014

Opening Day, the official opening of Seattle’s boating season sponsored by the Seattle Yacht Club, includes a celebration of many kinds of water activities. Festivities include a morning of crew races, a sailboat race, and the grand Opening Day boat parade on Saturday.

As always, the Opening Day Parade starts at noon the first Saturday in May with the blast of a cannon and the raising of the Montlake Bridge. Seattle Yacht Club’s Opening Day has become the nation’s largest regional celebration of water, spring and the opening of boating season.
