Just a heads up about a couple of performances tonight and on Thursday, the 25th that may be of interest to you if you are looking for something fun for the kids. And, it's free (but donations welcome).
From the Seattle Times:
Long-distance sailors typically are driven by a desire to explore new horizons, a passion for being at sea or some combination of both.
But Delphine Lechifflart and Franck Rabilier may be the only ones driven by their love of performing acrobatic shows while suspended from the mast of their sailboat.
The French couple, who will perform two shows at Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle on Saturday and Thursday, use the mast, boom, rigging and other parts of their sailboat to perform aerial acrobatics. Since leaving their home in northwestern France in 2004, they have performed in Europe, the Caribbean and South America before heading for British Columbia and Washington for a series of shows this summer.
Delphine Lechifflart and Franck Rabilier will perform "The Navigators" at 5:30 p.m. and "Between Wing and Island" at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Thursday at Elliott Bay Marina, 2601 W. Marina Place, west of Pier 91 in Magnolia.
The shows are open to the public, and the couple's boat will likely be docked on G or H dock.
