We would especially like to encourage in-progress boats to participate. They add to spectator interest and appreciation for wooden and classic boating.
You don’t get to see boats like this every day! See a wonderful variety of rare vintage motor yachts and sailboats from 1900-1960s. Meet skippers and crews and vote for your favorite boats. Children get to make their own wee boat, and all can board real ones! Boat rides, crafts market, artists, old-time band music, the Blessing of the Fleet and more!
Boats don’t have to be in show condition; they can be works-in-progress (aren’t they all!). The spirit of the Festival is to gather together the grand old craft and all who love them.
To close out the Summer, one or two (your choice) full days of cruising are planned on the beautiful Inland Waterway in Northern Michigan from Cheboygan to Crooked Lake. This Water Wonderland Foundation fund raiser is designed so that you can cruise both days or just the one of your choosing (space available). If you have never experienced the Inland Waterway, participating in this guided cruise will be a great way to explore this wonderful cruising venue. Last year’s event was an outstanding success according to those who attended. Many of them are planning to return this year. A limited number of boats will be accepted, so register early.
Full announcement and registration forms can be found at wwcacbs then look for the event calendar.
