BoatUS announced two 50th anniversary appreciation events to celebrate its half-century milestone.

The first BoatUS event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on April 6 at the Clearwater (Fla.) Yacht Club.

BoatUS president Margaret Bonds Podlich will host the informal, festive event with music, hors d’oeuvres and prizes, including a Star Clippers cruise for two.

“It’s a way to gather and thank our BoatUS members for their continued support over the years and to get with other boaters to talk boating,” Podlich said in a statement.

Local TowBoatUS captains will also attend.

An event also will be held from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on May 7 at Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend, Wash.
