***BYC OPENING DAY EVENTS CANCELLED***

To all of our members and special guests,

The tragedy of the Covid-19 pandemic continue to ripple through our community, and it is with extreme sadness that we announce the decision that we must cancel the Bellingham Yacht Club’s 2020 Opening Day events, including the Member’s Reception, Public Ceremony, Opening Day Boat Parade, and Opening Day Party.

As all of you who have attended this event in past years are aware, the amount of time, effort, and planning that goes into making this day so memorable is monumental. We would like to thank Fleet Captain Cathy Herbold and her dedicated team of volunteers for all of the work they have accomplished so far to make this a successful event.

Thank you for your understanding and support during these tumultuous times.

Following the morning formalities will be the parade, and this year’s theme is “A Three-Hour Tour”.  Those of you old enough to remember Gilligan’s Island will no doubt recognize the reference right away.  Those of you who didn’t grow up with the show might want to look up a few episodes to get some theme ideas.  After the parade, the celebration starts in earnest with ship visiting on the dock followed by the party in the club.  The Dead Pirate’s Society will be serving up barbecued oysters and shrimp, and the Penny Stinkers will be returning with their indelible, danceable tunes.
