Anchor-Out to the South Bay

The planned anchor-out to the South Bay is postponed

We regret to announce the upcoming South Bay Anchor Out will be postponed. Your cruise-out team has been reviewing weather and tide forecasts, and out of the abundance of caution, we’ve decided to postpone the South Bay Anchor Out. We are looking to reschedule the anchor out to January 27th, but that too will be dependent on weather. If it pushes further into February, we run into conflict with the St. Francis Cruise out. Thank you for your patience as we work to make our water activities fun and safe for The Club. We will post updates to the cruisers forum, if you want to be included, please be sure to subscribe to the cruisers email list, by sending an email to:

Speaker Series: Cruising the Inside Passage
Friday, January 27th, 6:00 pm – Clubhouse and Zoom

Members Jeff Birdwell and Holly Winnen will take us on their adventure cruising “Teak and Holly” up and back through the Inside Passage to Glacier Bay, Sitka, and Juneau. The beauty, vastness, and wildness of this area are almost indescribable. Every day offered something new to see and do. From navigating currents in the narrows, maneuvering through walls of crab pots, 25-foot tidal changes in 6 hours, and an array of wildlife (whales, seals, eagles, otters, and BEARS oh my). Not to mention icebergs, growlers, and baby bits. And yes we caught many fish, crabs, and prawns along the way. As boat owners of less than a year when we started the cruise we learned so much! We would love to share some of the highlights from our fantastic journey with you.

This event will be catered. Meal tickets will be $25 pp.

Zoom link will be posted next week.
