2016 June Newsletter

Thank you everyone who worked to make this year’s Festival of Sail a success. The festival could not happen without the support of local businesses, Coos Bay Downtown Association, City of Coos Bay, Coos Bay Boat Building Center, and the public. The enthusiasm and spirit of Bay Area residents and visitors make the festival the happening place on the southern Oregon coast. Dinner with the crew went above and beyond our expectations. Attendance was up, everyone enjoyed a good time, and the food, company, and entertainment was awesome. The evening was topped off with a special surprise. Captain Johann Steinke of the Lady Washington, proposed to Megan! An already great evening, now made unforgettable. The tall ships arrived a couple of days early and stayed a couple of extra days due to weather conditions – and was great news for the Coos Bay Area – more days of fun! We are already planning next year’s huge event. Thank You Everyone! You make this event possible.
