PSCC April Meeting: Coho Ho Ho Rally with Lee Youngblood

Please join us in person this Friday April 21st at 7:00pm at the Puget Sound Yacht Club for our monthly club meeting and presentation by Lee Youngblood on the Coho Ho Ho Rally!


Coho Ho Ho Rally

Long term PSCC member Lee Youngblood has been involved with the Coho Ho Ho Rally from the very beginning.  He will talk about the Coho Rally to get to the Baha Rally. The passage to San Francisco can be difficult, so the Coho Rally provides seminars, raft-ups, field trips and rig surveys, an educational approach to help cruisers prepare and make the “Big Left Turn” for their first serious passage.

Lee has been involved with the Coho Ho Ho Rally since the beginning, when Doug Lombard returned from his first trip with Kelly and John Wanamaker in 2013 and said “We have to have a rally, to get to the rally!” Doug’s enthusiasm has led to years of Coho Rallies, with seminars, field trips, rig surveys, raft-ups and line cutting parties. Lee and Doug started in Angelia’s Dockside Solutions and quickly out-grew the space. With the support of Fisheries Supply, they now meet in their training room, and with the annual kick-off at the Center for Wooden Boats . Lee has worked behind the scenes, wrangling speakers and sponsors, chairs, food and photos. He gets shots of the participants, their boats, and helps produce a fleet directory.

Meetings are held every third Friday of the month at the Puget Sound Yacht Club. The meeting is open to all, but we do ask for a $5 donation at the door to help pay for the venue and club expenses. Zoom attendees can make a donation by Paypal or credit/debit card here. We look forward to seeing you there!
