Saturday was a rare opportunity for the community as the Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay partnered with Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding for the 25th Annual Shipyard Tour. The annual event allows members of the community to tour the shipyard once a year, and see the all the work that goes into building ships. CenterPointe Yacht Services, the US Coast Guard, and the Door County Maritime Museum also contributed with various tours of ships and maritime history. Scott Bader, co-chair of the event for the Rotary Club, explains why he thinks this is such a popular event.
Early estimates expect this year’s attendance to surpass the 1,500 ticket record-setting attendance last year. The event takes place the first Saturday of May every year.
