Saturday: Movie Night
Movie Night on the Helipad Tomorrow Fishermen’s Friends
Saturday, June 26th at 7:00 pm
In 2010, a group of rugged fishermen carved out their own anachronistic moment in pop music lore, as the copyright-free folk songs sung by Fisherman’s Friends placed them at the Top 10 charts in the UK.
Chris Foggin’s “Fisherman’s Friends” doesn’t really explain how these harmonious workers and their sea shanties would have such a commercial appeal, and that proves to be intentional to its storytelling. This is a movie for instant fans; it’s explicitly for anyone who doesn’t need any convincing about why we’d instantly love them

Greetings from Sitka! We arrived in Sitka on a beautiful, sunny, blue sky Saturday only to be treated to a torrential rainstorm on the first day of summer. The locals here are enjoying the company of the pleasure boats, and await the return of the cruise ships with trepidation, as 2500-5000 are expected to descend on this area in two days come July 21st. Right now, they enjoy the peaceful atmosphere here.
Sitka will be our last provisioning stop before we head out towards Tracy Arm and Ford’s Terror and then begin our trek home. Canada is still keeping the border closed another month, so we will need to stop only for rest on our return trip, as we did on the trip north.
Our travels have led us through an amazingly beautiful region, with glaciers, eagles, sea otters,
and humpback whales, and the occasional brown bear, which are kept well at a distance.
BONITO has been comfortable and reliable, and we have met many interesting cruisers along the way. We are going places that you can only reach by small boat, and the coves are secluded and pristine. It will be nice to shed the rain gear in a few weeks and enjoy some summertime sunshine once we get back to San Juan Island.
If you are interested in hearing more about our excursions, please check out slowboat.com for the awesome photos and to see where we are, where we have been, and where we are going. This is a great group and they have made the journey almost effortless.

Friday, July 23rd, at the PYSF Campus Westpoint Meet The Junior Sailors and their Families
Larry’s delicios Sundowner Dogs will be available
On Friday, July 23 will be a Friday Fun race, and PY is doing a family night, where parents come and socialize, there’s a BBQ, and small boats are usually available for people to try out. Junior sailors will be joining the race, and afterward, everyone meets at the PYSF Tent for Latty’s delicious Sundowner Dogs. Think of this as a social evening, with an opportunity to meet the PY team, PY parents, Junior Sailors. And their chance to meet us. Having a strong showing by our members would let our junior sailors know how important they are to us. You don’t have to race, you can just show up after the race for the social party.
