Washington State Ferries will cap its 60th anniversary
celebration with a limited-edition magazine called Compass.
The keepsake publication is packed with information about ferry-served destinations that will interest tourists and locals alike, and historical and insider information about the nation’s largest ferry system.
The magazine is free and was produced at no cost to Washington State Ferries. The ferries system worked with maritime industry publisher Philips Publishing Group to develop and create the magazine as a final send-off to the yearlong celebration of the state’s first ferry run on June 1, 1951. It’s available at all WSF terminals and vessels.
Ferries Director David Moseley calls it “a wonderful snapshot of all the fascinating places you can ride a ferry.”
The magazine also includes a brief history of the system, interviews with a captain on the state’s busiest route and the only female staff chief engineer in WSF’s history, a feature on WSF’s achievements in marine rescues, maps and photos.
