Prepare to Strum and Sail: Floating Ukulele Jam Returns (Weather Permitting)

by Madonna

Get ready for a melodious adventure as the Floating Ukulele Jam sets sail once more! It’s time to dust off your ukulele, warm up your vocal cords, prepare a song or two to perform, and invite your friends and family to join in on the musical fun.

Mark your calendars for the upcoming event, set to take place on the interisland ferry on the traditional Third Thursday of the month, September 21st. The boat will embark from Friday Harbor at 5:30 pm, make its way to Orcas at 6:20 pm, and then Shaw at 6:35 pm. It promises to be an evening of harmonious delight.

But here’s the catch: the success of this musical voyage is dependent on the interisland ferry’s schedule and other logistical considerations. So, it’s vital to keep an eye on any updates and changes regarding the ferry’s operation.

Not a ukulele owner? Don’t let that stop you! You can still participate by singing along or simply enjoying the musical performances of others. And if you’re worried about not having any songs to share, fret not! The friendly folks on board are more than willing to teach you a tune or two.

Even if you’re sailing solo, you’re bound to leave with new friends and connections. The Floating Ukulele Jam is not just about making music; it’s also about building a sense of community and camaraderie.

If, for any reason, the interisland boat doesn’t set sail in the evening due to crewing or other unforeseen circumstances, don’t be disheartened. The organizers are determined to give it another shot in October, ensuring that the melodies continue to flow.

So, whether you’re a seasoned ukulele player, an aspiring singer, or simply someone looking for a delightful evening, make sure to join in on the fun. The Floating Ukulele Jam promises an enchanting musical journey that’s as dependent on the tides as it is on your enthusiasm. See you on board!
