Ahoy Cruisers! Not much has changed since my cruise blurb last month. However, the grass is starting to grow and Daylight Savings Time switches on this month! We must be getting close to the start of sailing season!
The CYC 2018 cruise schedule is posted on our website, http://cycbellingham.org
First cruise of the year is scheduled for April 27-29 for the Matia Island Cleanup. Hosted by Neal and Kim Bittner. This is always a easy and fun cruise.
The Port's Opening Day is scheduled for May 5-6
It would be great to find some cruise hosts for later in the summer, September and October. If you are willing to step up and support the club in this way, please contact me at email@example.com Hosting a cruise is easy and fun.
That's it for this month. Wash the winter grime off the deck, flush the anti-freeze from the head and get ready for cruising!
