Lighted Boat Parade

From the Solomons Business Association website at:


Calling All Captains & Crew! The annual Solomons Lighted Boat Parade will be held at 6:30 pm Saturday, December 8th, weather permitting, during the Solomons Christmas Walk. This year’s parade will be hosted by the Solomons Business Association (SBA), the Solomons Island Yacht Club (SIYC), Solomons Yachting Center (SYC), Zahniser’s Yachting Center (ZYC), Sail Solomons and the Patuxent River Sail and Power Squadron (PRSPS).

All boats, of any size, shape or make, are most welcome. Come out and show the Solomons community your holiday spirit by decorating your boat. All that is required is to decorate your ship’s starboard side, decorate more if the moment strikes you. Awards will include: First Prize/ Best in Show, Second Prize/ Sail  & Power, Third Prize/ Sail & Power, and Honorable mention.  Boats will be judged on: Technical Merit, Creativity, Theme, Crew Involvement, and Overall Presentation.

A captain’s meeting covering the route of the parade, safety issues, and the rules for judging will be held at SYC’s club house at 5:45 pm. Captains, please ensure that your boats are at the facility prior to the start of the meeting. A dock master will be available to aid in docking. Call on VHF channel 09 for further instructions.
