The Boats, Sponsors and Charities

Saturday, November 17, nine boats began their voyage with the Sailing Through the Winter Solstice 2018 event.An energetic group of volunteers, sponsors and launch teams cooperated to make relatively quick work of the fleet launch. A tenth boat was added on Sunday, December 1.

Heavens to Betsy joined us virtually, from her rooftop roost atop Brewer’s Alley. And our last boat, Puff, will make its appearance in the Kris Kringle procession and then take its perch overlooking the creek and North Market Street in front of La Paz.
