Set sail to Everett

The North Sound Cruise-In, hosted by the Everett Yacht Club, aims to bring boaters together for a fun weekend, July 30-Aug. 1, at the Port of Everett Marina.

No club affiliation is necessary. Events are open to all boaters.

Highlights include a crab derby, raffle, dinner barbecue, dingy scavenger hunt and brunch.

In Everett that weekend is a farmers market and concert series at the port. The club hopes to make this an annual event.
