The Palm Coast Yacht Club Holiday Boat Parade is back again, now in its 32nd year.  The Parade begins at 6 p.m. on December 16, 2017, departing from the Cimmaron Basin.  The Parade will be escorted by boats from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, Tow Boat U.S., and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. 



Last year’s Parade set a record with more than 33 boats participating and throngs of revelers hugging the shores of the Intracoastal Waterway with parties, and music.

         Boat captains are invited to contact Parade Captain Robert Ulis at 386-283-5166 or at srulis00@gmail.com for registration forms.  Registration forms are also available at the Palm Coast Yacht Club website at www.palmcoastyachtclub.comBoats must be registered to participate.  There are no entry fees. 


        Rain date is set for December 17.  Official notice of the Parade status and any rain date will be posted on the Palm Coast Yacht Club website on December 16 by 4 p.m.

Registered boats will gather on Cimmaron Basin at 6 p.m. and head east to the Intracoastal Waterway where the Parade turns south passing Tidelands, Canopy Walk, St. Joe Walkway, Waterfront Park, and Island Estates before turning at the Grand Haven Gazebo back to Clubhouse Waterway. 

Boat captains participating in the event are required to attend a special Parade meeting outlining safety regulations and procedures.  The meeting will be held at Marina Cove in Palm Coast at 10 a.m. on December 16.  Attending will be officials of the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, Tow Boat U.S., and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The Palm Coast Yacht Club inaugurated this Palm Coast tradition in 1985 and has been in at the helm of the Parade every year since.  The Club offers a wide variety of social activities for boaters and non-boaters alike, welcoming new members every month.  The Club was established in 1979.
