News from the Fleet Captain
We are off to a good start for the 2021 season. There has been a great response to the cruises so far. Remember the more the merrier, so join in! Also, if you are interested in being a cruise captain or co-captain just let me know.
Old Swedish tip for winter Cruising:
There is no bad or cold weather, only bad clothing.
Polar Bear Cruise
10 Boats have signed up for the Polar Bear Cruise to Edmonds next weekend Feb 5-7th. As soon as I receive slip assignments from the Port I will send them out to all registered. Nancy Langwith is busy planning some creative and interesting activities that we can do while maintaining social distancing. Remember to bring plenty of masks as we will be required to wear them whenever we are not on our boat. Let’s hope the weather remains mild.
Port Orchard Cruise (replaces Brownsville)
The Brownsville cruise has been replaced with Port Orchard! March 19-21
Sadly, due to COVID rules, the popular spaghetti dinner and Friday night fire pit activities are not going to be possible this year. So, the cruise has been changed to Port Orchard. It has the same easy winter weather inside passage, there are parks and walks, and restaurants offering outdoor and open air service, shops are open. Steve and Gloria Young have offered to be cruise captains.
In order to lock in our reservation, you will need to register for this by February 3rd. The port requires that we register as a group and needs our numbers soon. Click the link to make your reservation: Port Orchard Cruise - 3/19/2021
The Marinas have all made new COVID inspired regulations about how to book group reservations. Each one is different; some want each captain to call with their boat info, some will only deal with the Fleet Captain, some want to assign each boat slip and others want the club to do that. Please read the instruction emails that go out so that we can comply with their requests.
If you are not receiving Fleet specific emails, remember to go to your profile and click interest in boats/boat owner. This will put you on the list to receive them all.
