The CYC cruise to Kingston on April 28-29 was enjoyable and well-attended with ten boats traveling across the sound. Saturday morning started out overcast with very light wind. Most boats motored to Kingston and passed several sad-looking boats drifting along in the Smith Island/ Scatchet Head race.
The afternoon was spent relaxing and exploring the town of Kingston. Club members gathered on the dock in the late afternoon to enjoy happy hour snacks and beverages, share stories, and become better acquainted. Then it was a short walk uptown to Westside Pizza for dinner. Twenty one members and guests enjoyed pizza and more beverages. The service at Westside Pizza was excellent as was the pizza.
Afterwards some cruisers retired to relax onboard their vessels while many others searched out music and entertainment. They found live music at the Kingston Ale House. Many even contributed to the show and rumors abound about the karaoke abilities or lack of abilities in CYC cruisers. So much fun was had Saturday night that some cruisers did not get up for breakfast until 10am the next day.
Sunday again brought overcast skies and light winds. There was enough wind in the morning to get started on a sail back to Shilshole, however the wind soon died. The breeze came up and the sun came out later in the day.
