You are the reason more than 1,600 individuals had access to quality boating and cold water safety education through the CBC in 2019, and it's up to you to help even more people have the same opportunities in 2020.
Join the CBC for a festive celebration with live jazz, drinks, a raffle, and hors d'oeuvres, and honor another successful summer season of equitable and affordable access for all Whatcom County residents to Bellingham Bay.
Gather with friends to share stories of our beloved Bay, and to share the excitement of looking toward 2020 programs that will help even more people get to experience the magic of connecting with nature from the intimacy of a small vessel.
Forge connections with other passionate boaters, make plans to get out on the water together come Opening Day 2020, and make a donation to share this joyful opportunity with your community!
Do you love building community and spreading a love for boating? Then you might be a perfect fit with the Community Boating Center's team of dedicated boating enthusiasts.
