PSCC Meeting March 20, 2020 Friday 7:30pm at North Seattle College - Currently Delayed!
Circumnavigating Vancouver Island the Slow Way Patrick & Natalie, on the C&C LF 38 s/v Violet Hour, have been exporing and cruising in the Pacific North West, doing one long summer trip, and local weekend cruises once or twice a month. With plenty of time, there was no need to rush, and time enough to explore small communities like Walter’s Cove and Ucluelet. Learn about the key challenging points, best anchorages, weather (many southeasterly gales in July!), and see lots of pictures of cute sea otters. This will be a fun and informative presentation, a PSCC tradition of cruisers helping cruisers.
Silent Auction of CSR Haul-out and Bottom Paint Special
CSR Marine, one of the best yards in the Seattle area has generously donated a certificate for a Haul-out, Pressure Wash, 3 Layover days, and Half-off Labor and Bottom Paint, to help support our club.
This donation is worth approximately $1,000 for a 30’ boat or $1,500 for a 36’ or greater length boat.
At the March 20th Club Meeting, we will have a silent auction for the CSR donation. We’ll have bid forms for you to submit. If you can’t attend the meeting, you can send your name, e-mail address and bid, before the meeting, to Mark Olsoe markolsoe at Comcast dot net (remove the spaces and change “at” and “dot” to their respective symbols).
The minimum bid is $500. Please be generous in your bid, because this auction is the major fundraiser for our Club. Yes you must be a PSCC Member! Thanks!
Blake Island Marina Trip - March 28/29, 2020
If you've never been to Blake Island - plan on this trip! Just SW of Alki Point, this popular little State Park is a Seattle area favorite. There are shelters for a big group potluck, space for kids to run and explore, with biking/hiking trails for the whole family. There are driftwood-scattered beaches and views of the Seattle, Mt. Rainier and the Olympics. As usual, you can expect a potluck dinner, and likely a shared breakfast too. Talk with other cruisers for more info, and join us there!
