A "Cruising Club" - not a "Yacht Club".

The Puget Sound Cruising Club was formed in 1973, to bring together people interested in local and offshore cruising, sharing stories, pictures, and sailing experiences. We sail together, learn together and help each other out. Our monthly meeting is at 7:30 pm, at North Seattle College, Library building, lower level, concert hall, room LB1142, on the third Friday of each month, except July and August, when we are out cruising. Meetings generally consist of a short business meeting, followed by a presentation of some aspect of cruising, a travelogue or tech-talk. Guests are always welcome! A 5$ donation at the door helps pay for the room. A lifetime membership to the Club costs $40 and entitles you to a Club burgee. After the meeting, we go out for pizza & beer at Razzi's Pizza, a casual setting for technical discussions and sea stories at 8523 Greenwood Avenue North. (Follow someone for parking.)

PSCC plans local cruises, rendezvous on the weekend following the meeting. These trips are generally within easy cruising distance of Seattle, and generally involve a shared meal or two. You’re welcome to join us by boat (or car when destination is road accessible). Raft-up, anchor on your own, or take a slip (where available). Club rendezvous in rustic locations, have included Australia, Barkely Sound, Alaska, and locally, Bywater Bay, Blakely Harbor, and Oro Bay. Sometimes we even go to a dock. We have a couple races every year, but there is no prize for first place.  We are after all, a cruising club.

There is a great network of cruisers, with all experience levels, working behind the scenes to make the club run smoothly. Please volunteer to help - you will get more out of the club, than you can put in! Contact the Commodore, Mike Wytychak ( ) to talk about volunteer opportunities. Thank you!

The Club uses Yahoo Group mail to send out updates about events. If you’re interested in that service, introduce yourself to the Commodore at a Club meeting, and then send an email request to: ( - Welcome aboard!
