46th Annual Lighted Yacht Parade

Join the fun by entering your boat in the parade or as a spectator. The parade route starts at the southeast end of the Oakland/Alameda Estuary in front of Grand Marina Harbor Office.
They then travel up to Jack London Square where the boats go around a buoy and head back down. Midway down the estuary in front of Encinal Yacht Club is where the boats will be judged as they go past. There are three categories of boats, sail, power, and misc. Each division will have a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and a best over all.

For more information and entry forms, go to: www.encinal.org or www.oaklandyachtclub.net.

Grand Marina will cover the $40 entry fee for all of our berthers who participate. Give us a call for more info!

This parade supports the Oakland Firefighters’ Random Acts of Kindness and the Alameda Food Bank. Grand Marina hopes that many of you will participate in this fun and great cause.
