Gallery: 2023 Bellingham Bay Classic

Between the 2023 Bellingham Bay Classic and a wedding ceremony on the beach Saturday, Aug. 12, the Boulevard Park parking lot was filled up by 8 a.m.

The Bellingham Bay Classic is a canoe race hosted by the Bellingham Bay Outrigger Paddlers (BBOP), a club of around 200 members that was founded in 2011. Race director Janice Lapsansky said the event is making a comeback after taking three years off during the pandemic.
