Saturday, March 23, was Opening Day at Shoreline Yacht Club in Long Beach, CA. And this year was the Club’s 30th anniversary. I was too busy enjoying the party and forgot snap more images, but I grabbed this shot during the ceremony from the balcony. As seen on the boat closest and center in the photo, members will decorate their vessels with a string of flags for the celebration. The little added flare is a nice compliment for the the big day.
Members, as well as visitors from other yacht clubs, dress in their blue jackets and white pants. Hors d’oeuvres are passed around and drinks are flowing. With perfect weather and a beautiful view, it makes for a fun day.
