The 37th Annual Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival takes place Thursday, July 4 through Sunday, July 7! The Wooden Boat Festival is designed to celebrate the maritime heritage of Seattle, getting people out on the water on historic wooden boats.
Parking is limited, so consider riding a bike, walking, taking the Seattle Streetcar, or taking the Seattle Mini Ferry from UW!
One of the largest and most diverse fleets of classic wooden boats seen on Corio Bay will assemble for the Whyte, Just & Moore Lawyers Wooden Boat Festival of Geelong, conducted by the Royal Geelong Yacht Club on the Labour Day weekend of March 10 and 11, 2012. With free entry to the onshore displays, visitors are invited to meander along the jetties and enjoy the display of well-loved wooden boats. Festival highlights will include the Batavia Longboat, a full-sized replica of a 17th century boat that carried survivors from the wreck of the Batavia, as well as the historic topsail schooner Enterprize.
Stuart Dickson, Chairman of the organising committee, will display the Adams 40 he built in his own shed. Visitors can expect a packed program including a grand parade of boats, the Classic Yacht Passage Race from Melbourne, the Couta Boat Passage Race from Portarlington, harbour races on Corio Bay, demonstration races by a fleet of Heron-class sailboats and the Couta Boat Victorian Titles.


This is an old-fashioned, down-home waterfront event where everything is fun and almost everything is free.
Admission is FREE but donations are accepted and help the Center for Wooden Boats offer this great annual event. Check out general information about the Center for Wooden Boats and the Wooden Boat Festival here! Old ocean racers, fishing boats, harbour greyhounds and ex-pilot launches, plus large topsail cutters, putt putts, dories, classic speedboats, yachts and clinker-built dinghies will be featured.
The 40ft hand-crafted boat is named Patternmaker in honour of his late father, who was a woodworking patternmaker by trade and had cut out the chipboard forma templates to shape the hull. Hasse moved toPort Townsend in 1977 and started her sailmaking business in 1978,   She was part of a small group of enthusiasts who were instrumental in planning and starting the very first Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival in 1977. Other than for the purposes of review, and subject to the Copyright Act, no part of it may, in any form or by any means, be reproduced without prior written permission. Hasse discusses how the festival got its start, who was involved, and why it is such a special event year after year after year.


I want to build a community of people from all over the world who want to connect, learn, share stories and photos, and have fun with wooden boats. During the interview, Barb discusses some of her favorite memories at the Festival and what to expect at this year’s Wooden Boat Festival on September 5-7, 2014.
