Mark your calendars for these cruise weekends as they are all not to miss events.

The Wintery Wenatchee event is being hosted by Mike Thompson, and Bonnie Murray.  The fun filled weekend will be past when this article is printed, so hope you did not miss it.

March 1 – 3.  The Bell Harbor Cruise, downtown Seattle, Bell Harbor Marina.  (206 878 3951), contact    This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the culture and shopping of downtown Seattle, all within easy walking distance of the marina.  Saturday evening dinner will be held at Anthony’s again this year.  Now is the time to confirm your boat reservations for the marina, as this must be done before February 16. After that, the marina releases the SBYC reservations to first come, first served.  Please let me know if there are problems with making reservations.  Also, let me know if you are coming, sans boat, to the dinner on Saturday, so I can make reservations for that too.

April 19 – 21  Yellow Fest, at Blake Island.  This weekend gives boaters a chance to enjoy the Pacific NW outdoors away from the city, no cars, sirens, or crowds, all within 90 minutes by boat. Jessie Lundin will be hostess this year for the ‘Easter Egg’ hunt.  Bring firewood and small bottles of liquor for the hunt.  SBYC has rented the pavilion for Saturday evening, and boaters will bring a potluck dish to share.  No marina reservations are required for the docks, so getting there as early as possible helps to secure dock space.

May 17 – 19  Burger Burn, at Brownsville Marina.  The cruise will be to Brownsville Marina this year, under the pavilion, a wonderful place to have a barbecue protected from the spring rains.  Grills are available for cooking.  A croquet game is planned for non-competitive cruisers to renew their coordination skills.  Just kidding about the non-competitive; I challenge anyone to beat me.  No prizes offered,  just personal satisfaction.  Marina reservations have been made, however, it is necessary to confirm one for your boat.  Please let me know if there are any problems.

June 14 – 16  June Dinner Dance at Kingston Cove Club House.  The dance is on the third weekend of June, because of conflicts with race events on the second weekend.  The dance will be a lot of fun, as the band, Malo Castro and his players, are terrific musicians, performing upbeat and dance-able music.  Last year they had everyone dancing by the end of the evening.   The Kingston Ale House will cater the entree;  SYBYC  is planning hors d’oeuvres, dessert, and of course, wine. Confirm your boat reservations at the marina.  SBYC has reserved 10 for now, and let me know if there are any problems.

More to come; I hope to see you on the water this year.
