May 02, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report
The Port of Redwood City is ready for the 75th annual South Bay opening day of sailing season later this month with events including the blessing of the fleet and a decorated boat parade.

The theme of the Saturday, May 18 opening is “75 years of making waves on the south bay.”

The decorated boat parade and fleet blessing, both scheduled for 11 a.m., is best viewed from the port’s observation deck and spectators will be able to vote for their favorite boat. The “Spectator’s Choice Award” will be presented at 1 p.m. along with other awards.

Bands will play music from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the day includes exhibits in the Sequoia Yacht Club parking lot from the Marine Science Institute, police and fire departments, West Marine/Leukemia Foundation, Dock-walkers, Power Squadron and the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Water activities also include the Coast Guard cutter, rowing club and kayaking demonstrations and the Sea and Mariner Scouts.

The Sequoia Yacht Club will offer a breakfast menu of pancakes, eggs, sausage and fruit juice from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. for $5 per person and a noon lunch menu of hamburgers, hot dogs or veggie burgers for $10 per person. Menus include a non-alcoholic beverage.

This year’s grand marshal is Coast Guard Rear Admiral Karl Schultz.
