Next Dinner Meeting: Tuesday January 16, 2018

IVAR’S Salmon House, 401 NE Northlake Way, Seattle

5:30pm Meet and Greet – 7pm Dinner in the Banquet Room

Topic: Traversing the Northwest Passage

Speaker: Our very own Michael Hoffman

This is going to be one special presentation that you won’t want to miss.  Club member, Michael Hoffman, will be telling the story of the voyage of Alkahest (owned and sailed by cruising club members Jay Tremblay and Danica Richard) this past summer through the Northwest Passage, from Greenland up and around to Alaska.  Traversing the Northwest Passage was a mariner’s dream throughout the 18th, 19th, and even the 20th century, but now, finally, it’s a reality as a result of climate change and today’s yachting technology.  Even so, Alkahest was just the 128th boat to make this passage. “It was an amazing trip complete with icebergs, tidal glaciers, wonderful people, spectacular and austere scenery, whales, and pack ice,” Michael summarizes.


We expect a number of additional attendees at this presentation (friends of Michael’s, eager to hear his story), so don’t delay in making your reservations.  Having many guests will also make this event more interesting, as we can get to know many of these people who know Michael, but may not know us yet.  Michael tells me many of them are boaters and could be interested in our club as well.  So, please, get your reservations in soon and make plans to join us for this special Dinner Meeting.
