Three CYC boats made history on June 17 and 18 by being a part of CYC’s First Annual Blake Island Midweek Cruise. And what an event it was! It featured spectacular weather, incredible views of Mt Baker and Mt Rainier, remarkable wildlife, and best of all, socially distant CYC comradery.
Participating boats included Wind Dancer (with Jennifer and Chris), Comet (with Monica and Robinson), and Charlotte (with Jane and Al). We were able to get three adjoining spots at the dock on beautiful Blake Island. After a socially distant hike around the island (see photo), we came back to our respective vessels and all had delightful dinners (separately, but sitting on the dock sort of together).
Saturday night featured a brisk northerly that pushed a fair amount of chop into the marina that made enough noise to almost mask the sound of the raccoons partying overhead on our deck. However, they did not wipe their feet prior to jumping on board so their footprints provided evidence of the night’s revelry.
Sunday morning breakfast happened, and everyone sailed off into a 10-knot northerly that provided the perfect amount of wind for a brisk sail home.
Make sure that you put the “Second Annual Blake Island Midweek Cruise” on your bucket list for 2021.
