Thanks to Sabre63 and Bill for their kind words about our Festival. We're looking forward to another fun time and really hope that we'll continue to attract more and more fiberglass classics each year.

The three-day festival starts with a pre-event on Friday morning. That's our Bay to Lake Lighthouse Cruise. We motor from the museum to the Sherwood Point Lighthouse on Green Bay and then return to downtown Sturgeon Bay for lunch at the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club. Then after lunch we head down the ship canal to Lake Michigan and shoot pictures of each other at the Coast Guard station and light. Friday evening, after the cruise, we have a complimentary cocktail reception in the museum for registered skippers and crew.

Saturday the show opens and entry to the grounds is free. We display boats in the water at Skipper Bud's Harbor Club marina and on shore at the Museum. There is the adjacent street festival, the start of the Sikaflex Boatbuilding competition, great food, drink, activities for kids and of course the boats and the museum itself. No one should miss visiting the Museum's signature vessel, the 100 year old John Purves, one of the Great Lakes' great tugs. The new Shipwrecks of Door County exhibit in the museum is terrific- especially the simulated sinking of a Great Lakes schooner that you steer from the wheelhouse of the old steamship Elba. We even hold a Boathouse Sale of used nautical gear and boats. All the proceeds of the sale help keep the Museum afloat. Saturday night we usually get a few of the boaters together at the Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club for dinner and drinks. The club usually holds a fireworks display that night and I hope this year is no exception. The celebration caps off Sturgeon Bay's Maritime Week which honors not only the maritime history of the area, but also our US Coast Guard and the great work they do keeping all of us safe.

Sunday's excitement is focused on the finale of the Sikaflex Competition with the in-water time trials. Some of the boats will finish, others will not. It's always fun and draws a big crowd. The best place to get information and to register on-line is at our website.

Hope to see you there.
Bill

Though the event is already underway, we will bring the boat in the morning. Saturday and Sunday are full of fun and activities! Hope the weather stays nice. Tons of wooden boats and other interesting boats. Some personal hand built works of art and a little miscellaneous... hopefully a few glass examples. Lots to do surrounding the event with a few blocked off streets. The Sikaflex hand built boat races are a blast to watch. Built in full view on Saturday and raced on Sunday... big crowd for the races and you can watch from the bridge. Hope to see some members there!
