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 or your favorite bots. Children get to make their own wee boat and all can board real ones! Boat rides, craft 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.
The boating begins Saturday August 31, and goes through Monday September 2nd. The show itself is on Sunday September 1st at the Landing Restaurant from 12:00 till 4:00. Join us for guided tours of the lake, which was voted one of the top 5 best boating and scenic lakes in America by National Geographic.
Contact Jeff or www.lakevermilionresorts.com for lodging information. The Boat Show Committee looks forward to seeing you in September. The registration is $45.00 which includes dinner for two at the Skipper’s banquet, Saturday night
This is a rendezvous and no judging will take place. Only friendship and boating are on the agenda. The public is invited to see the displays from 10 am to 4pm, Saturday September 20th. (Eastern time zone)
