Commander Navy Region Northwest – SeaFair 2007 Fleet Week

Some of the finest ships from the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, and Canadian Navy will be visiting Seattle the first week of August for Sea Fair, 2007, and there will be opportunities for the public to tour the vessels.

The beginning of this year’s Seafair festivities will be marked by the arrival of the guided-missile cruiser ship, USS Bunker Hill (CG 52); USS Cleveland (LPD 7); and guided-missile fast frigate ship, USS Rentz (FFG 46). The fleet will be docked at noon and berthed at Piers 90 and 91 along the Seattle waterfront.

The ships will be joined by the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Steadfast and three Royal Canadian Navy ships participating in Fleet Week activities, beginning with the Elliot Bay Parade of Ships on August 1 at 1:45 p.m.
