Trawler Fest heads to the Pacific Northwest

Trawler Fest, a celebration of the cruising-under-power lifestyle, will be held May 12-14 at the Cap Sante Boat Haven in Anacortes, Wash.

In its 16th year, Trawler Fest, produced by PassageMaker magazine, features more than 60 exhibitors showcasing boating products, services and accessories. Seventy boats will be on display for boarding.

Seminars will be offered at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. daily for attendees who want to further their knowledge and skills. Seminar topics and titles include "Confessions of a Galley Slave," "Practical Considerations for Spare-Parts Outfitting" and anchoring and cruising Alaska.

There also will be hands-on activities each afternoon that are included in the $15 general admission price. They include an engine room field excursion with Steve D'Antonio, a rescue line toss contest and presentations about emergency locator beacons and global search and rescue.

Trawler Fest University will precede the boat show on May 10-11. It offers a variety of two-day courses that allow students to take a hands-on, in-depth look at boating topics. All of the courses are accredited by the United States Power Squadrons. Students who successfully complete courses earn credits toward their U.S.P.S. Boat Operator Certification.

Thursday and Friday evening will feature a cocktail reception and dinner. On Saturday evening, participants will enjoy a cocktail reception at Cap Sante Boat Haven, followed by the presentation of the People's Choice Award, which will be given to the boat that attendees select as their favorite of the show.
