April 19 – 21  Yellow Fest, at Blake Island.

This weekend gives cruisers a chance to enjoy the Pacific NW outdoors away from the city. No cars, sirens, or crowds, and all within 90 minutes by boat from Shilshole Marina. Jessie Lundin and Harold Baldwin will host this year’s Easter “Egg” hunt. If you plan to participate in the hunt, bring five small (airplane size) bottles of liquor to Mischief Maker by 2p.m. Saturday. Please also bring some firewood for the fire in the pavilion, which SBYC has rented for the Saturday evening potluck. Cruisers bring your own main dish as well as a dish to share.

Some cruisers get to Blake as early as Thursday because early birds can get space at the dock with electricity, and can help bring other cruisers into dock space. No reservations can be made at Blake, so SBYC unofficially tries to keep us all together on the south docks.

A Planning Committee for the June Dinner Dance will be held on Slow Dance, Saturday a.m., around 10:00.


May 17 – 19 Burger Burn, at Brownsville Marina.

This year’s cruise will be to Brownsville Marina, where we will meet 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 for each boat to confirm. Please contact or (360) 692-5498, to confirm your reservation.


June 14 – 16 June Dinner Dance, at Kingston Cove Yacht Club.

Due to conflicts with race events on the second weekend, the Dinner Dance has been moved to the third weekend of June.

The dance is fun! The band, Malo Castro and his musicians, are terrific, performing Latin American upbeat and danceable music. Last year everyone was dancing by the end of the evening.

The Kingston Ale House will cater the entree; SBYC  is hosting the cocktail hour. Wine and beer are included in the ticket price (TBD).

Confirm your boat reservations at the marina, 360 297 3545. SBYC has reserved 10 slips for now.  Let me know if there are any problems.

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