You’ll now have to wait until 2022 for your rare chance to see the inner workings of Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding for the Annual Rotary Club Shipyard Tours. This year, the tours that are usually held the first week of May were held on Saturday by the Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay. The Rotary tours are typically the only chance for the general public to see Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding up close and personal each year. Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding Assistant Manager and Finance Director, Ryan Hoernke says those who came this year got to see a couple of exciting newer developments.
The proceeds from the event are directed toward the Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay and the Rotary Youth Interact Charitable projects. The event is a catalyst in the Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay’s ability to award tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships to local students each year. This year, the event was held completely outdoors so that all attendees could safely enjoy their tour.
