Forests and forests of wood will be on hand for the Master Mariners Benevolent Association Wooden Boat Show on June 25.

For our money, one of the best shows in town this month is the Master Mariners Benevolent Association’s Wooden Boat show, coming to the Corinthian Yacht Club on Summer Sailstice weekend, Sunday, June 25. 

For $20 at the gate, you’ll be able to tour an assortment of classic yachts, from Birds to big yawls like Bounty. We recommend wearing your best socks as you’ll probably need to take off your shoes (we also recommend not wearing stiletto heels). 

It’s one thing to see pictures of these boats, it’s another to walk on the deck and see your reflection in the varnish.

Don’t forget that proceeds from the Wooden Boat Show go toward the Master Mariners Benevolent Foundation, which provides scholarships for sail training, as well as workshops in building and restoring traditional craft.

There will be model boat building for kids, as well as music courtesy of the “San Francisco Feetwarmers” jazz band. The event is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
