Thanks to everyone who came out for Yachtapalooza this year! We had a blast, and hope you did too.
There were lots of great seminars, rows of vendors, trucks full of food, and of course every boaters' favorite sale; our VC17 Special.
However, charity is never forgotten. The Nautical Donations flea market was bustling all day, we were visited by Jennifer from ROW 4 ROW, and we helped raise money for the Judd Goldman Adaptive Sailing Foundation in an unusual way. We hope you all enjoyed a chance to dunk Cary in our Henri Lloyd Drysuit. It was for a good cause, we swear!
The weather was the best we've had for this party in years. Which would have been remarkable had it not been for the two weeks of unseasonably gorgeous weather we had before...
And with such a great turn out, we had some very crowded seminars. John Stanis' annual Bleedin' Diesel, Jon Paige's Rig Tuning, Jayne Parker's Teak Maintenance, and Andrew Spaulding's Charts and Dead Reckoning were all standing room only.
We had demonstrations of how to blow up a life raft, how to put out a diesel fire, and how to choose the right fire extinguisher for your boat. And don't forget the model boat regatta. Congrats to our winners!
A big shout out needs to go to our workers in the store. Our VC17 Sale is the biggest of the whole year. And as expected, we were very busy. But everything went well. We peddled in paint and smiles.
So if you missed out this year, you'll just have to join us next year! We look forward to seeing you there.
