Memorial Day Cruise to Fisherman's Bay
Join us Memorial Day weekend (May 24-27) on beautiful Lopez Island for our 4th annual joint cruise with the Bellingham Yacht Club. It's a great way to celebrate the unofficial start of summer!
Here's the plan for the weekend:
To RSVP, email Vickie Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you're coming and then call the marina at (360)468-2233 to reserve your slip. (Be sure to tell them you're with the CYC/BYC group.)
Looking forward to it!

Hosting A CYC Cruise:
First and foremost you must select a cruise that sparks your interest, whether a favorite destination to share with other CYC members or a location that you have always wanted to visit but until now have not done so. Second, you determine dates that suit your schedule. Third, you decide what activities, if any, you wish to explore such as hiking, dining, shopping, beach combing, etc. and whether or not there will be any pot lucks or BBQs. Once these tasks are decided you can send an email to all members by sending it to the cruise chair and/or webmaster who will forward it to the membership. Then you coordinate the trip with members so that you have a destination, phone numbers, boat names (radio contact), MMSI numbers, and any other necessities. Then you sail together or converge at your planned destination and have a wonderful time exploring the area!
Photographs and a paragraph or two in the next newsletter are always a welcome addition. Please remember that your back yard (San Juan and Gulf Islands) contains some of the best cruising grounds in the world. Get out there and enjoy your boat and your fellow CYC members. Valuable information about local cruising can be found in San Juan Islands, a Boater's Guidebook by Shawn Breeding and Heather Bansmer, 2013.
