2015 CruisingNW Father’s Day Flotilla at the Deer Harbor Marina
We had an amazing time at Deer Harbor!
Our inaugural event was a great success! The highlight for us here at CruisingNW was helping introduce the San Juan Islands and Deer Harbor Marina to a “new-to-boating” couple. Paul and Judy Hansen came up from Everett and we loved getting to know them.
We bbq’ed, held the dock down, enjoyed boating talk over various beverages, dined with deer, made some toasts to dad’s who have passed and took a hike!
Judy Hansen won the side dish with her baked beans! Yum.
Thank you to the inaugural participants! You are on the VIP list for as long as you want to join us for future Father’s Day Flotillas!
Our first event went very well. We had a blast. 6 boats with a total of about 30 people joined in the fun. We had 2 Uniflites (36′ and 29′), a 34′ CHB, a 26′ Sea Ray, a 27′ Bayliner and a 30′ Regal.
We were represented by a few countries.
Thanks again to everyone! We can’t wait to create more fum on the water at one of your favorite places!
