Safe, splashy summer staple: Boaters Fair returns to downtown dock | Photo gallery

The annual free Boaters Fair once again took over the city dock in Waterfront Park Sunday, bringing with it a fleet of gawk-worthy sailboats, at least one of which was offering rides around Eagle Harbor, kayaking and knot-tying demos, and more aqua-themed fun.

A special highlight this year: The women of team “Sail Like A Girl,” who competed in this year’s Race to Alaska, a 750-nautical mile race from Port Townsend to Ketchikan, Alaska, and came in first, were there to share pictures and stories from their voyage.

The Bainbridge Island Police Department’s Marine Services Unit was there, as well, offering tours of the 33-foot Marine 8, used for search-and-rescue missions, vessel assistance and environmental response, and also Marine 11, an 18-foot vessel that is often used for boating safety checks, boater education and enforcement of “No-Wake Zones” around Bainbridge Island.

The Review’s Luciano Marano was there to capture the watery tradition. His favorite photos are collected here.
