Colleen Wager, elderly women in red

In memory of Colleen Wagner, co-founder of CWB, we will lead a Sailpast on Lake Union by The Old Boathouse near the Aurora Bridge, where the Wagners first started CWB over 40 years ago.

Boats wishing to participate in the parade should rendezvous in South Lake Union in front of CWB by 2:45pm. The sailpast departs CWB at 3pm and will proceed north along the east side of Lake Union, turning west in front of Gasworks Park, turning around at the Aurora Bridge to sail past The Old Boathouse, then traveling south on the west side of Lake Union. Public moorage will be available for boats on the north and west walls of MOHAI.

Due to safety and health concerns around COVID-19, CWB will not be holding a reception on site after the sailpast.

Livestream details of the event will be announced. If you would like contribute a photo of Colleen at CWB to the slideshow for historical archives and a memorial video, please email them to events@cwb.org.
