Join the 2023 Petaluma Lighted Boat Parade on Saturday December 10th!
Kick off the holiday season by joining Petaluma Yacht Club’s flotilla! Several thousand citizens line the shore to take in the spectacle. We need vessels of all sizes- power, sail, and man-powered to join us. The only requirement is all participants have a mounted or hand held Marine Radio.
Please arrive at Marina at 5:30 for a 6:PM departure. Large vessels over 27 feet will stage at the opening to the channel near Marina as they are the first to enter the channel first. Smaller craft please stay at least 15-20 feet away from all sides of large vessels so you can be seen by skippers that are visually impaired from lights reflecting on the water.
We ask ALL participants have a handheld marine radio or mounted marine radio and monitor Channel 68. For the safety of this event, this is the only requirement to join us. Please remember the flotilla is organized from largest to smallest vessels. Docking is from largest vessels to smallest vessels.
