QUESTION: What does an ideal summer evening in Bellingham look like?
ANSWER: Paddling the bay during a warm, golden sunset.
But wait there's more! Let's include a crisp local brewski in one hand and tasty munchies in the other, hanging with old and new friends, talking and laughing, all with a fabulous waterfront view.
We agree, so we got busy and created FREE PADDLE TUESDAY.
Thanks to generous sponsors, you can now enjoy a 1-hour paddle rental (sit-on-top kayaks, paddleboards, rowboats, sea kayaks) FREE OF CHARGE every Tuesday from July 3 to August 14, 4:30 pm through 9pm. Bring the kids because we'll also have family-friendly activities and games, a rotating food selection, and for you beer lovers, a Stones Throw Brewery beer garden right here on site! Rentals are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Check your schedule this summer. Spend time on and around the water. Come down to the CBC and get to know your boating neighbors!
We have 6 brand new
RS Quest sailboats
for classes, camps and to rent!
RS Quest sailboats are specifically designed for people (youth and adults) who are taking up the pursuit of sailing. They help sailors gain confidence and experience by keeping them engaged without becoming overwhelmed. They also accommodate more intermediate skill development such as spinnaker handling.
Enroll your kids in summer camp and give them the gift of sailing an RS Quest! Camps fill fast so check Summer Camp and After-School Camp for details.
