The Opening Day Boat Parade in Friday Harbor on Sunday, sponsored by the San Juan Island Yacht Club and Port of Friday Harbor, had a record number of boats in the parade (37) and an enthusiastic set of spectators on Spring Street Landing.

14 prizes were awarded overall and the two top prizes went to:

Best Overall: Rebozo and the Peace Island Medical Center Volunteers

The Rebozo, skippered by Bill & Rebbie Bates, is joining us from Roche Harbor. She is a 48’ Offshore power boat. Rebozo and her crew are again honoring Peace Island Medical Center. Many of the people aboard are hospital doctors, administrators, nurses and their family members. Our uniforms and various medical devices have been provided by our hospital and from previous hospital stays from the crew.

Most Creative: Vic-torious
As the 13 foot long Vic-torious prepares to celebrate Vic's Drive Inn's 60th year as a local favorite, our unofficial mascot Hammy takes to the sea with a Chef and Captain Brian Carlson on hand to spread community cheer while looking forward to the next 60 years.

Best Overall: Rebozo / Peace Island Volunteers | Bill & Rebbie Bates
Most Creative: Vic-torious / Vic’s Drive Inn |
