The KPSU Kruise took off around midnight on Friday to a series of cheers and whoops. It's safe to say that everyone had been imbibing for a few hours, enjoying the unseasonably warm evening breeze off the Willamette. The crowd was certainly celebratory, buying raffle tickets, drinking champagne, and hanging out on all decks of the boat.
Grandparents played to a packed room as the Portland Spirit lazily floated from St. Johns to Sellwood, under the bridges of Portland. Onuinu started close to 1 am, serenading his audience with his electronic disco-groove beats. Almost as soon as everyone found their sea legs, the boat docked, and the sailors left one buoyant party to find another.
