CYC Annual Holiday Boat Parade

Yellow Submarine

The annual Colington Yacht Club Holiday Boat Parade was originally scheduled for dusk on Saturday, December 9, but due to inclement weather, was postponed until December 16. Ten boats joined the parade this year. First Place went to “Yellow Submarine” (last year’s winner), with Skippers Steve & Linda Buick, who lit up their very cool pontoon boat.

Sweet Shu

Second Place was awarded to “Sweet Shu”, skippered by Rick & Sharron Hildebrant. The theme for the parade was “most artistic”, but the judges had to surrender to the skippers, who squeezed on as many lights as can be strung without transformer malfunction!

Colington Yacht Club donates the prize of $50 to the winning boat, which the owner(s) can invest in ---- you guessed it --- more lights! Participants and spectators enjoyed over 80 cups of hot cocoa, Christmas cookies and great fun!
