Spring Schedule brings the return of International sailing

There will be a celebration this Sunday marking the return of the international sailing between the San Juans and Sidney, B.C.

From the Peninsula News Review:

“The annual fast and furious party for the Ferry Between Friends will start with the arrival of the first boat of the season Sunday…

“The first ferry of the season will dock at 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 25 followed by a 40 minute party with pipes, town criers, RCMP in serge and words from the mayors of the three communities where the Washington State Ferry stops…

“ ‘It brings a lot of tourists to our region, both sides,’ Olson said. And it’s not just from Anacortes, but the islands between as well, due to the stop on San Juan. ‘In the summer probably 20 per cent of our business comes from Friday Harbour,’ he said.”
