WHAT: MARITIME DAY 
WHEN: Saturday August 6, 2016 8AM to 6PM
WHERE: Galilee Harbor 300 Napa Street at Bridgeway, next to Dunphy Park in Sausalito

In honor of Galilee Harbor’s 36th Anniversary this cooperative/ liveaboard/affordable housing community invites everyone to revel in the spirit of all that is maritime. 

Marine Flea Market Buying, Traditional Boat-building Demos, Boat Rides and Floating Home Tours are just some of the things to do at Galilee Harbor on Saturday August 6th.
Galilee Harbor, a community of artists and maritime workers, formed in 1980, continues to thrive as it celebrates its community and this year will highlight the Boat Builders of Sausalito’s past and present.

Sponsored in part by Richardson’s Bay Maritime Association and  Lagunitas Brewing Company, this event showcases art created by Galilee Residents & Friends. The Arques School of Traditional Boatbuilding will present a boat building demonstration. San Francisco’s Maritime Museum will bring historic vessel Alma for the public to visit. Free boat rides will be available all day. Purchase a raffle ticket to win a Galilee Harbor-built wooden skiff.

Bring the whole family to this free event.  Listen to live music, courtesy of our members and musical friends: Oakland’s Samba Guisse Band, The Salty Barnacle, The Ukulele Friends Ohana & Galilee resident Pete Belden & the Harbor Rats. Lunch on fish and chips and homemade pies. Purchase that long sought after item from one of our Marine Flea Market vendors. Watch or sail in this year’s Dinghy Dash race. Walk the docks and tour a number of floating homes or just sit by the bay and catch sight of our resident great blue heron and fellow egrets off the Mono Street marsh.

Galilee Harbor Community Association is a non-profit, cooperative, maritime neighborhood dedicated to continuing the maritime arts and skills while providing affordable floating housing on the Sausalito waterfront.

Galilee has 10' x 10' booths to rent for $30 all day if anyone is interested in selling marine gear or art work. They should call the office and leave a message 415 332 8554.
