Astoria Regatta 2008

At 7 pm tonight, August 6, 2008, coronation events will kick off the Regatta festival here in Astoria.
Sailboat races, children’s parade, USCG SAR demonstration, Bumble Bee Cannery worker’s reunion, historic home tours, concerts and fireworks over the Columbia River are a sampling of the events planned as part of the 4-day celebration.

The Columbia River is also the center of the Pacific Graveyard, and this small detail area of NW Limited...History in Vogue's shipwreck chart illustrates that.  Charts are available by calling 503-338-6056 or email bill@nwlimited.com

What is the Regatta Festival? 
A celebration of the river and it’s history intertwined with the people who have lived, live and will live here along the waterfront.

Times change, but the river itself has remained constant in its own ever-changing landscape.  The types of boats and ships that traverse the currents is different, and navigation aids slow their losses.  Commerce threatens to change it drastically, and development always perches on a precarious edge of greed versus aesthetics. 
One thing will never change, and those are the names and dates recorded; the history that has dictated our arrival here and now, and which is being made at this very moment:


HAPPY REGATTA
from NW Limited…History in VogueTM!!
