This Week at Your Yacht Club

Hello Yacht Club Members, Wow! What an exciting week!

Congrats to Team Elsie Piddock for their win in the R2AK on Friday! They had some great stories at the Friday night BBQ….

And more congrats to teams MOB Mentality and Por Favor who after more than a week and 700 miles had a down to the wire finish for 2nd place!

More teams are on their way!

This week looks action packed too…we have the usual Thursday night race and Friday night BBQ….on Saturday we have the “Gravina to Port” race (I sure hope Team Elsie Piddock doesn’t enter or I’m sure it would be another race for second!) and then another big day on Sunday…

The National Power Boaters Association will be here with 11- 42′ to 58′ boats and have invited us to join them on their boats for a predicted log race on Sunday. They would like us to be time keepers for the 3.5 to 4 hour course, lunch provided. (You just have to write down the time when the skipper calls “mark” at control points). I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. Sounds like a great way to spend some time on a really nice boat! Be at the club Sunday morning at 9-ish. They start at 9:30-10am at Thomas Basin.

Then, after a day on the water we’re having a party…Come celebrate boating, fathers day and the summer solstice….The Power Boaters, The Round Gavina Racers and the R2AK Racers will join club members for the evening. This will be a great chance to tap into a wealth of boating knowledge and a bunch of boating tales while listening to great music and eating great food! This special event will be catered by Garcia’s Galley and music provided by Dave Rubin (remember opening day?) Cocktail hour at 5:30, dinner at 6:30. The cost for this great party is only $20 for members and $25 for others.

We’re having a great time at the Ketchikan Yacht Club….Hope you can join us!
See you at the club!

Rear Commodore
