PSCC Meetings are held at North Seattle College, (NSC) 7:30pm, on the third Friday of the month, in the Library Building, Lower large Concert Hall, Room #LB1142 (large performing arts room on the ground floor). Park in the West lot. Show up between 7:15 and 7:30 and just follow the people in. Your $5 donation at the door helps cover our room rent. Guests are welcome at all PSCC meetings and raft-ups.
PSCC Cruises are usually the weekend following the meeting, the fourth Saturday and Sunday of the month. Boats flying the club burgee generally raft up or occasionally dock in the early afternoon. We often end up having appetizers and drinks in someone's cockpit, arrange a casual potluck meal on Saturday night and Sunday brunch. Please download the Raft-Up Tips PDF. Members occasionally arrive by ferry or car and are dinghy'd to the raft. If you want to join the raft-up, by land, please be sure to contact someone for a dinghy ride! Download the NEW 2019 Rendezvous Schedule PDF, plan your next cruise, and join us. We are often out cruising, and hope to see you on the water. . .
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. See also the 48 North Article - PDF.
June 29-30, 2019 Annual Salmon Bake at
Hidden Cove Park, Bainbridge Island
Join us in Port Madison for our biggest raft-up of the year, a delicious and fun event! Cruisers from the East Coast to New Zealand plan for this event. The club buys the salmon, and volunteers cook. It's the biggest potluck of the year, with babies to old salts, and folks can come to the park via dinghy dock or by car. If you don't have a dinghy, someone will give you a ride. Plan to chip in for the salmon ($10/person), and bring a dish to share - it's a social potluck! Of course, there will be breakfast on the raft-up and great camaraderie, so come by boat if you can - maybe Ranier will be out for the sail home, and you can pose like s/v Tango! More pics from last year's Salmon Bake are Here!
Sorry NO official Cruising Club events are planned for July and August - most of us are out cruising!
If you fly your burgee, you may find friends around Poulsbo on July 3rd
to cruisers returning from Alaska, or around Vancouver Island, rafting up for an impromptu potluck in the San Juan Islands late August to early September. Sometimes fresh fish or crabs are involved. . . See you in September!
OK Maybe August 31/September 1st - details to follow. . .
