SHILSHOLE BAY YACHT CLUB – 2020 CRUISING ACTIVITIES
Bell Harbor Cruise. Pier 66, 2203 Alaskan Way, Seattle Waterfront
Our first cruise of the season. This Cruise is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the culture and shopping of downtown Seattle, all within easy walking distance of the marina. Time to take the canvas off the boat, turn on the engine to make sure it runs, and motor or sail across the bay to Pier 62. Slips have been reserved, but reservations MUST BE MADE two weeks prior to the event, no later than February 24. The SBYC $5 per boat will also be requested.
Weather permitting, cruisers have been known to arrive Friday and enjoy an impromptu Cocktail Hour on the dock in the afternoon. This allows time for a Saturday walk through Waterfront Park, or exploring Pike Place Market before the Saturday evening dinner to be held at Anthony’s again this year.
This event is accessible by land or by water. The EVITE for this event has been emailed, and an RSVP is requested for dinner reservations. At this time, I only have 3 maybes, and 1 yes. If you have not received your Evite, please contact me, CruiseChair@Shilsholebayyachtclub.org.
