Olympic Yacht Club

Vice Commodore’s Blog Saturday November 5, 2016 Greetings OYC members, I am writing to you on this Saturday as we “Fall Back” and our days shorten as we head toward winter. Today we are gathering at West Seattle Bowl to enjoy throwing down some pins with our boating friends. Although we head indoors in this season the fun with OYC friends continues. Our club is growing and thriving. Twelve people have joined this year (Cara Kirpatrick, Rebecca Kirpatrick, Julia Johnson, Scott Wilburn, Michael Calderon, Laura Kogen, Kevin Gaspari, Kent Thoelke, George Rabatain, Pat Bluemel, Jessamy Whitsitt, Renee Steen, and Kent de Vigne). We have a total of 112 members, 8 of which are lifetime members. I have a tentative cruising schedule to share with all of you. I welcome your feedback. I need to have a firm schedule in time for the Christmas Party on December 3, 2016. I am grateful for this club, Leslie Norman OYC Cruising Schedule 2017 DRAFT Location Date Event Chandler’s Crab House January 28 Boat Show Brunch Port Townsend at Wooden Boat Center Feb 4 Captain Ace Spragg will teach a radar class---If we have enough interest there can be a morning session and an afternoon session (8 people per session) Winter Rendezvous Meet-up Feb 10 to 12 This is an event sponsored by another organization but many of us OYC members plan to go, we had a blast last year Brownsville March 17 to 19 Weekend Rendezvous Theme to be announced by Fleet Captain Tulip Festival La Conner April 14 to 16 Weekend Rendezvous Theme to be announced by Fleet Captain Shrimp Festival Pleasant Harbor/Hood Canal Memorial Weekend May 26 to 28 Weekend Rendezvous Theme to be announced by Fleet Captain Port Orchard June 16 to 18 Weekend Rendezvous Theme to be announced by Fleet Captain Deadliest Catch Shilshole/Launch of San Juan Cruise July 14 to 16 Crab Harvesting and Eating Tacoma/Launch of South Sound Cruise August 18 to 20 Weekend Rendezvous Theme to be announced by Fleet Captain Poulsbo September 15 to 17 Weekend Rendezvous Theme to be announced by Fleet Captain Pumpkin Hack October 14 Halloween with Dan, Roy and Marcus West Seattle Bowl November 4 Weekend Rendezvous Theme to be announced by Fleet Captain Christmas Party at Elk’s Club in Ballard December 2 Christmas Party Annual Fundraiser Chandler’s Crab House January 27 Boat Show Brunch
