The first ever holiday lighted boat parade was a resounding success. Six boats participated: “Shannon,” skippered by Mark Bettis; “Seadancer,” skippered by Bill and Emily Hoyt; “Smooth,” skippered by Tom Fedyna; “Panda Angler,” skippered by Gary Edwards; and “Stella Maris,” skippered by Alex Houlton. The parade was led by former Harbor Master, Ed Hallett, in the patrol boat, and MC’d by Catherine Miskow on “Cardinal Rule.” The windless, moonless night made for perfect conditions, as the group proceeded down the slipway and out the channel, as members of the public gathered on the berm to watch.

At the end of the parade, the kids and guests were treated to a special visit by Santa Claus, and Queen Elsa (from the hit movie “Frozen”) as well as cookies, hot cocoa, and hot apple cider. Elsa, Santa, and Yvette Yong acted as judges for the boats. First prize went to “Shannon,” and second prize went to “Seadancer.” The boats will be docked at the guest dock for the holidays. We hope to make this an annual event for the club, the marina, and the local community. Thank you to everyone who participated and who helped make this event a success.
