The Seattle Yacht Club partners with the University of Washington and Windermere Real Estate to put on the Opening Day of Boating Season, one of Seattle’s most-loved Spring traditions.
Many changes have taken place since the first Opening Day celebration in 1913, when the Montlake Cut opened Lake Washington to Lake Union. Today, Washington is one of the top ten boating states in America and the Seattle Yacht Club’s Opening Day Boat Parade is one of the biggest in the world.
