PSCC July Cruise · Exploring Blakely Rock · July 3rd to 5th
PSCC cruisers have for years had an informal raft-up for the Poulsbo Fireworks on the third, joining hundreds of other boaters. Sorry - canceled this year! Instead the July 3 cruise plan is to anchor in Blakely Harbor Friday night, the 3rd, and go tide pool exploring at Blakely Rock the next morning. Blakely Rock is one of the best tide pooling locations in Puget Sound. At low tide it's more like a small island with a white shell beach for dinghy landing and anchorages on the west and south sides. It's large enough for social distancing. July 4 low tide is -2.77 ft at 1016hrs, and July 5 is one of the lowest tides of the year at -3.0 ft at 1142 hrs. Blakely Rock is fantastic to explore at very low tide, so join us to look for seal pups, crabs, eels, and a return of the starfish! We will of course, have a socially distanced floating happy hour around 5:30pm on Friday. – come in your tender and tie off at a safe distance. Remember to fly your PSCC burgee and monitor VHF 69 over the weekend. If you have any questions on the cruise, e-mail Greg at grgdvnprt2002 at yahoo.com Stay safe and sail on!
