PSCC Bywater Bay / Memorial Day Holiday May 25-27, 2019
One of our longer local trips, the PSCC Bywater Bay Raft-up is always special. NE of the Hood Canal Bridge, protected by the spit, this trip offers a unique lagoon/beach walk, with birding, and maybe clam-digging or crabbing. Club members always share their technical experience at raft-ups, so ask your questions; windlass or rigging, anchorages, offshore sailing, etc. Of course there will be dinner and breakfast potlucks, a fine PSCC tradition. Remember when Nita brought us hot muffins, and we motored out the Hood Canal with the sub?
PSCC Meeting June 21, 2019 Friday 7:30pm at North Seattle College
Sarah Scott has an inspiring story! A few years ago she watched Maiden Trip on Netflix, the documentary about Laura Dekker, the thirteen year old Dutch girl setting out to circumnavigate. It hooked and intrigued her, and she bought a Catalina 27 to live aboard and learn to sail. Now she is rebuilding a Rawson 30, named Sea Turtle, working at Fisheries Supply, involved with the Coho Ho Ho Rally, and planning her own circumnavigation, first around Vancouver Island later this summer. She will bring supportive stories and lots of project pictures, what a lot of learning, and a real role model! Sarah Scott shares her dream of becoming the first black woman to circumnavigate the globe solo. Download the 48 North Article - PDF.
