2014 Bell Street Rendezvous -- June 13-15
The Pacific Northwest Fleet of the Classic Yacht Association in conjunction with the Port of Seattle will once again sponsor the Bell Street Pier Classic Rendezvous as part of the Seattle Waterfront Classic Weekend, June 14 and 15 at Pier 66 on Seattle's downtown waterfront. Over forty classic motor yachts, many of them built prior to World War II, will welcome visitors throughout this Father's Day weekend. This event represents the largest gathering of classic yachts on the West Coast. The yachts will be joined by dozens of classic automobiles that will be on display on the pier. Admission to all show sites is complimentary.
The Bell Street Pier Classic Rendezvous will again highlight a Marquee Class of yachts - TBD
On Friday June 13th, 2014 the classic yachts will participate in a Sail-In Parade along the waterfront prior to their arrival at Bell Harbor at 4 pm. An excellent view of the yacht parade will be available from Myrtle Edwards Park or from any of the downtown piers between 2 and 4 pm.
The public is invited to the Bell Harbor Marina docks to view the classics on Saturday the 14th from 10 am to 4 pm, and on Sunday the 15th (Father's Day) from 10 am to 4 pm. Many of the boats will be available for boarding, and guests are asked to wear soft-soled shoes. Visitors will be asked to vote for their favorite yacht. The winning boat's name will be inscribed on a permanent plaque on display at Bell Harbor.
The Classic Yacht Association was formed in 1970, dedicated to the promotion, preservation, restoration and maintenance of fine old power driven pleasure craft. Almost 300 vessels are currently registered nationwide, with many located in the greater Puget Sound area.
