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 will include a morning of crew races, a sailboat race, and the Grand Opening Day Boat Parade at noon on Saturday, May 3. The Montlake Bridge will be raised at that time, so plan accordingly for congested traffic.
Here is a link to the events as listed on Seattle Yacht Club’s page. This year participating yachts will be decorated to illustrate the 2014 theme for Opening Day, “Toys Ahoy”.
