TURNPOINT LIGHTHOUSE CRUISE - STUART ISLAND
June 22-June 24
WORK PARTY SATURDAY JUNE 23RD
Join us for a wonderful day working to help preserve this historic lighthouse on Stuart Island. There has been an amazing effort to preserve and present the history of this lighthouse. If you have never joined the annual work party, it is a must do on your bucket list!!
If we are lucky, and often we are, the orca whales swim up to the point and then cross over to Canada. It is an amazing sight to be able to look down at them as they swim right next to the cliffs of Stuart Island. We always break to watch the whales!
Anchor in Prevost Harbor.
Meet at the Government Dock in Prevost Harbor at 9:00 AM Saturday, June 23rd. Weather permitting, you can anchor in the northwest area of Prevost Harbor to be closer to the dock. (We will be driven to the Turnpoint Lighthouse)
Water will be provided throughout the day
Lunch will be provided (make your own meat and cheese sandwiches, chips, watermelon, grapes, and cookies!)
Potluck on the beach at 6 pm
What to bring:
- work gloves
- sun screen
Let me know if you are able to join us! Please RSVP with the name of your boat, number of people, and your cell number.
Memorial Day Cruise Report
We had a great time at Fisherman's Bay over Memorial Day weekend with the BYC. We had 23 boats, and the weather was great (albeit a little breezy, but it made for some great sailing there and back). It was great having our illustrious Commodore Martel in attendance as well! Being a long weekend, we enjoyed all the free time to go fishing, kayaking, visiting the Farmer's Market, and just hanging out. We had over 60 people at Saturday night's potluck which featured sliced ham and a game of 5 card poker mashup with prizes for the high and low hand. Many people left on Sunday, but we still had around 30 people for our Seafood Feast on the dock including fresh caught lingcod (thanks Troy) and shrimp as well as a cocktail special we call "Island Dreams." Thanks to everyone who attended! We had great time hanging out with you.

With a great first series of CYC Thursday Night Racing behind us and 3/5's through the second, the amazing weather and wind so far continues with a few wet and light exceptions.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Matt Luxon, S/V Gato and crew for Series 1 and Bob Jenkins and S/V Windshift for Series 2!
We have 17 races ahead of our CYC Thursday Night Program, and we look forward to seeing you out there.
May the warm weather persist, the winds stay steady, and the blessings of our beautiful Bellingham Bay never wane...
CYC Race Chair
You won't want to miss our June 12th Potluck. After we have finished eating, Jon Martin has arranged to have members of the Coast Guard give a talk about how they would like to be contacted in various situations such as emergent or less-than-emergent situations, using VHF and cell phones. We will then have an opportunity to talk about using flares and other devices.
Next we will head over to the breakwater area and Corinthian members can shoot off their flare guns and ignite a hand held flare. Mike Reed will also have his boat out in the bay, and he will shoot off various types of flares, including standard 12 gauge flares along with a 25 gauge flare, and a SOLAS parachute signal rocket. He will demonstrate the new non-incendiary signal device. Mike will also have a personal strobe light such as one might attach to a life vest. People can get an idea of what it looks like from shore when one is trying to signal using flares and a rescue light.
Members are encouraged to bring their flare gun and expired flares for personal use, along with eye and hearing protection. A half dozen or so safety glasses will be provided as well as some foam ear plugs. The Coast Guard personnel are also invited to share our meal, so bring a few extra helpings with you for the potluck. This is meant to be a fun and interactive evening that is designed to increase your confidence in contacting the Coast Guard or other boaters if the need were to ever arise.
Thank you Jon for arranging such a wonderful event for our members. REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR OUTDATED FLARES.

While in Princess Louisa Inlet last year, I offered these grilled flatbreads as an appetizer on several occasions. You can vary your toppings according to your taste and what is available. One night, I made a variation using canned artichoke hearts.
Radicchio, Goat’s Brie and Fig Jam

- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Head(s) radicchio sliced in half lengthwise

Preheat barbecue to medium. Brush radicchio with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until it begins to wilt, approximately 3 minutes on each side. Remove outer layer and chop roughly.
Grill flatbread on both sides, approximately 2 minutes per side.
Top flatbread with a thin layer of fig jam and pieces of goat’s brie. Close the barbecue and grill until cheese has melted, approximately 3 minutes. Remove the pizza from the barbecue and top with radicchio and microgreens, if using.
