222--California: ALYC Old Glory Boat Parade
@ CherieSpotting     Jul 05 2004 - 08:11 PST
cherie writes: American Pride. Once a year we celebrate our country’s independence, and in true American fashion, we try to out-do ourselves each year.

This 4th of July, 34 friends crammed (comfortably) onto Electre, a Beneteau 45f5. The sailboat coasted through Newport Harbor with over 150 other yachts decorated in red, white and blue. The boats included plastic kayaks, rubber dinghies, racing yachts, fishing boats, and even a floating Woody.

Some draped hundreds of flags over the rigging, while others used their halyards to hoist massive American flags. We wore silly masks, decorative hats and patriotic vests.

Here are the 4th of July photos for American Legion Yacht Club's Old Glory Boat Parade.
