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. There is no membership fee, but you can buy a burgee for $40.

We go out for pizza & beer at Razzi's Pizza, a casual setting for technical discussions and sea stories. . . 8523 Greenwood Avenue North. (Follow someone for parking.)

PSCC plans local cruises on the weekend following the meeting. These trips are generally raft-ups within easy cruising distance of Seattle, and generally involve a shared meal or two. Club raft-ups are usually in rustic locations, occasionally 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! Mike Wytychak our new PSCC Commodore, is out cruising on s/v Raven Dancer this summer, and might be reached at (206) 704-2249. Thank you!

If you need more help, have questions, or suggestions for the club, please send us an email.
