The historic motor yacht Olympus is making her last trip out of the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Ballard and you’re invited to help send her off.
On Sunday, February 26, Olympus will take on fuel at Morrison’s Fuel Dock on Lake Union and classic boats and other interested vessels are welcome to rendezvous there at noon and travel with her to the locks in a farewell flotilla.
Olympus will take her time heading westward towards Ballard and boating enthusiasts are encouraged to gather at the locks at 1:30 p.m. to give her a grand sendoff as she heads toward Puget Sound.
From Shilshole Bay, Olympus will turn north en route to Victoria where she’ll be put on a transport ship and sent back to her birth place, New York.
