███ Pacific Northwest Cruisers Party – Poulsbo


    08/09/2013 to 08/11/2013


    Summer is an exciting time for the Puget Sound Area. Once again a chosen port will be invaded by a large group of boaters affectionately known as The Brethren of the Sound. With each annual invasion of the “Pirates”, these port communities have had a $60,000-$77,000 economic impact from one weekend.

    This years event is brought to you by: Brethren of the Sound, Cruising Outpost, ThreeSheetsNW.com, 48*North, and PacificNWBoaters.com.

    This 12th year event will take place at the Port of Poulsbo on Friday, Saturday and Sunday August 9-11th 2013. During this time special activities are being held, for both children and adults. Keep in mind this is a boat centric event and so most activities are boat and pirate related. There will also be cannon fire from some of the boats and this would make this event a not so pet friendly place to bring your pets.

    PartyShirt2013-NEW-finalAs always, the public is welcome to enjoy all activities, including and not limited to music on the docks performed by tropical-rock star Dave Calhoun on Friday and Saturday. On Saturday we have the Seafair Pirates bringing mayhem to the docks along with blindfolded dinghy races, pirate costume contests for both children and adults, and children’s pirate piñata games. The evening of Saturday the 10th we’ll have a raffle with proceeds going to non-profit charities and costs incurred for this event. Night entertainment will be provided by the internationally known tropical rock Eric Stone Band . We also have the world famous author/sailor and publisher of Cruising Outpost Magazine, Mr Bob Bitchin on hand to write a feature article on this event for the magazine. All this and more is why we are looking for local businesses as Sponsors for this event, if you are interested please contact me; sailorgary@hotmail.com
