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. . .
Sorry NO Official Cruising Club Meetings are planned for July and August - most of us are out cruising!
If you fly your burgee, you will find friends in Liberty Bay, for the Poulsbo Fireworks on July 3rd. Use VHF channel 69 to communicate, for a casual summer rendezvous. Where ever you sail, keep an eye out for the PSCC burgee on cruisers returning from Alaska, or around Vancouver Island, rafting up for an impromptu potluck. Sometimes fresh fish or crabs are involved. . .
August 31/September 2nd - look for a Labor Day rendezvous at Quartermaster Harbor. Check out the inner harbor for the most protection. Going down, the tide is coming in all afternoon on Saturday, and there will be a current boost, in Colvos Pass on Monday. NO RSVPs, no telling what kind of sea creatures you may find, just show up if you can. . .
PSCC Meeting September 20, 2019 Friday 7:30pm at North Seattle College
PSCC - Not a Yacht Club As our fair weather cruising season slows down, its time to start our monthly meetings back up. Normally we have a single speaker talk, but not this month. This month our club is doing something a little different, sharing our summer sailing destinations.
As a cruising club our members go everywhere. So why not get together and talk about some of our favorite new spots. In a way its an "open mic night" as long a we have time. We have Cuba, Alaska and a variety of other interesting local destinations on the menu for your education and entertainment. This is a great way to catch up with each other after a fun filled summer. Snacks and Coffee provided as well a lots of pictures.
This event is always fun and educational for sailors of any experience level. So come out September 20 at 7:30 to see us! Hope to see you there.
PSCC Tequila “Race” September 28 & 29th, 2019 - A Fun PSCC Tradition!
For many years the cruising club has done a fun race, that may or may not have made it around Blake Island and usually finished South of Blakely Rock. No one would know who won, till they filled out a questionnaire at the raft-up. Hint - a fast race boat can finish first, but not win this club race! The winner poured the tequila. . . A little different this year, we are going to Port Ludlow. Race instructions will be at the September meeting, but don't expect any PHRF rating issues, this is a cruising club with hilarious and odd rules! Do expect good food, camaraderie and shenanigans, potluck meals and maybe even a hike. Download the race directions HERE for this great cruising club tradition!

Join us for a traditional Potluck Dinner at the Port Madison YC with a pumpkin carving contest, and the story behind the ghastly Pugnacious Pumpkin Award. This is always a delightful, warm & cozy, evening. Come by car, if you can't make the sail over. There is often a Sunday brunch potluck, for those that raft-up, before folks have to head home.
