About the event

From the blessing of the fleet in Racoon Straits to the parade of decorated boats this is a great day to get out on the Bay.

Dating back to 1917 and organized by the Pacific Inter-Club Yacht Association, the parade runs just north of Anita Rock off the shore of Crissy Field in the Presidio, follows along the city front to first Fort Mason building east of the Marina Green.

Any vessels can take part (you do not have to be a yacht club member) as long as they register beforehand and have a marine radio. Some boats will be decorated to this year’s theme “Broadway on the Bay.” This theme is open to many interpretations. Some may chose to depict musicals, movies or cartoons that have been made into Broadway Shows. Others may dream up scenes from current or past Broadway productions. Some boats will fly flags and streamers or just join in the parade not decorated. All are welcome.
