It’s getting to be that time of year again, so start making your plans for NW Sailing Days on the Long Beach Peninsula! It all begins with Loyalty Days Ilwaco on Saturday, May 2nd with the Blessing of the Fleet, the Children’s Parade, and the opening of the Ilwaco Saturday Market. Followed by a parade in Long Beach. Visit the Long Beach Visitor’s Bureau for more info & a full listing of upcoming events.
But that’s not all! This year, Ilwaco has been chosen as the Host City (starting point) of the Pacific NW Offshore International Yacht Race! The racing yachts can be viewed at the Port starting on May 6th. Then on the 7th, the yachts are off on their race to Victoria, B.C.
