Our Ferry Godfather
Robert "Jake" Jacob
April 19, 1949 — Sept. 10, 2018
Memorial on board the Astoria Ferry, November 4, 2018
A beautiful weekend of honors and love for Jake. We're very grateful to all who came aboard to tell tall tales and enjoy the beauty of Jake's big dream -- to return the Tourist No 2 to Astoria.
Peace and love, and onward with the restoration of the Ferry!

On August 13, the Ferry was honored to host the 2018 Gathering of Past Admirals and Presidents. The annual luncheon is the biggest fundraiser for the Regatta's program of generous scholarships awarded each year to Regatta Princesses and Ambassadors. Here's a sampling of photos from official Regatta photographer Scott Docherty. (Click on thumbnails for full size image)
