7:00PM - The Willamette Fleet assembles in front of RiverPlace Marina, (1750 SW Harbor Way, Portland) and travels upriver to the area of the Milwaukie Boat Ramp. At the boat ramp, the fleet turns and returns to RiverPlace Marina. Note: Due to weather conditions, debris in the river, and commercial river traffic with the right of way, it is not possible to give times when we will pass viewing areas. The fleet should arrive at Milwaukie Bay Riverfront Park around 8:00PM and then will work its way back to RiverPlace Marina. The fleet will be out for approximately two hours.
