While we cannot gather in person, we will come together virtually for the Bell Toll Ceremony.

On Sunday, September 12, 2021, at 10:00 AM, tune in to the Wooden Boat Foundation's Facebook page and join us in honoring the mariners and community members we have lost over the past year.

The virtual Bell Toll Ceremony will be led by renowned sailmaker and mariner Carol Hasse, who will read the names of those who have crossed the bar. A bell will ring eight times, to mark the end of the departed's watch on this world.

If you would like to add a loved one's name to the list that will be read during the ceremony, email .
