Anacortes Small Boat Messabout

Reviving an old Anacortes tradition, the Pull and Be Damned-Small Boat Messabout will be held Saturday May 17, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, at Seafarer’s Park in Anacortes.  Small boat enthusiasts will come from near and far.  The original events were historically held on south Fidalgo Island and named after Pull and Be Damed Road in the local area.

This is an opportunity for small boat enthusiasts to gather, share and have fun on the water. Bring your own boat if you have one. Come see all sorts of small craft and meet their owners. Vessels attending will include gigs, whitehalls, kayaks, skin-on-frame boats, various sailing craft and more.

The event is sponsored by the Anacortes Small Boat Center (ASBC) and Port of Anacortes, The Old Anacortes Rowing and Sailing Society (OARS) and The Hole in the Wall Paddling Club.

There will be a potluck lunch in the Seafarer’s building with barbeques provided for grilling. There is no cost for this event. Come share in our waterfront and enjoy the day, simply messing about in boats.
