"I've participated in many boating and community events and I'm especially proud to be a part of Channel Islands Harbor Marinafest. There will be beautiful boats on display, great food and fun on-the-water activities for the whole family all in support of our new Channel Islands Boating Center. We're thrilled to bring this event to our community and look forward to meeting new friends and celebrating our beautiful waters." - Bob Nahm, General Manager of Catalina Yacht Anchorage, co-producer.

There will be more great

activities on Sunday such as the Father's Day Car Show and the Farmers' Market. "We are very excited to be part of this innovative team for the 1st ever Channel Islands Harbor Marinafest. Though we've enjoyed hosting the Ventura County Boat Show for the past 16 years, we felt it was time to move forward and create a brand-new event that has a greater community and boater focus. We look forward to sharing the joy our Harbor brings and this important sport and past-time with the entire community." - Brian Dunn, General Manager of Vintage Marina Partners, co-producer.
