PSCC Rendezvous March 23-24, 2019 Manzanita Bay
Manzanita is an easy trip, a good way to start sailing this Spring. Located SE of Agate Pass on the West side of Bainbridge, you can use this trip to circumnavigate Bainbridge. If you are coming by car, be sure to arrange a dinghy ride first. There may be access at off Mananita Road NW, at the head of the bay. Another option may be at Williams-Olson Park . Cruisers will plan on a potluck dinner and breakfast. The food is always great - but we never know who will show up! Plan for a fun MOB practice. Here's a Quick-Stop JPG and the Overboard Rescue.PDF download.
PSCC Meeting April 19, 2019 Friday 7:30pm at North Seattle College
The phrase "Sail Like a Girl" has a new meaning. Come meet the all women's crew who not only crushed this stereotype but also this year's Race to Alaska (R2AK).
Life often pulls us in a million directions, but these 8 women sought their R2AK bid as a breather. Among these sailors are those with careers in law, public health, occupational therapy, and marine electronics. Those running businesses, serving as consultants, and advocating for expanded access to cancer care. And those who are also moms…
Learn what drove these women to choose this epic 750-mile journey to Ketchikan as their break from the daily grind, how it helped them get out of their comfort zones and how they banded together to conquer whatever Mother Nature threw at them in the often treacherous waters known as the Inside Passage.
SEARCH FOR THE NEXT COMMODORE AND TREASURER
The tenure for the Commodore and Treasure will end in June. It’s time to search for their successors. Do you know of someone who might be interested in these positions? Please send their name and contact information to Mike Wytychak at firstname.lastname@example.org You can certainly nominate yourself. Volunteers make this organization vibrant. If you have enjoyed PSCC meetings or events in the past, please participate in continuing them in the future. There’s an old saying that many hands get the work done quickly.

PSCC Circumlocution of Bainbridge Island April 27-28, 2019 Raft up at Lemolo, Liberty Bay
This popular race is a PSCC tradition with almost 30 years of fun history. We sail, either way around Bainbridge Island, with a finish line under the power-lines entering Liberty Bay. Read the fine print - the winner is the boat that comes in second! The most hotly contested award is the Horros d’Hoover, so the food is always great! The Perseverance Award is harder to win, but you have till Sunday morning to finish. This has often been one of our larger raft-ups, and folks who have driven over, may get a dinghy ride to the raft-up for the potluck. Always a fun trip - even if you don't race, join us!
