Boat Show Coming to Town


The Northern California Boat Fest is going on today through Sunday, May 16-19, at Marina Village Yacht Harbor. It should be a fun event for Islanders and friends.

Visitors can get information from local yacht clubs, check out used boats for sale, stroll through new and used power and sail yachts, get details on joining a sailing club or owning a boat in a charter program, go out for a sail, see the newest boat equipment, attend one of several sailing seminars — and more.

Seminars will focus on sail-making and maintenance, emergency life rafts and chartering in the Caribbean, for instance.

Musicians featured at the event include Steve MeckFessel–folk, blues and jazz; Michael McNevin — songwriter, vocalist, steel-string guitarist and storyteller; and pianist John R. Burr.
