CYC organizes cruises that provide an opportunity for social weekend cruising, create an environment to exchange cruising knowledge, and provide opportunities for families to enjoy cruising. Cruises can always be added to the CYC calendar. Is there someplace you think it would be fun to visit with friends? Join us and organize and lead a cruise.

On 2nd Thursday of each month, the cruising group hosts a cruising social. The CYC cruisers social is an opportunity for CYC members to connect with other CYC cruisers to share cruising knowledge. We often have a specific program focusing on cruising topics or an open forum of discussion. Currently we are meeting via Zoom which requires a registration to obtain the link. Post-COVID, we will resume meeting in the clubhouse for potlucks or brown bags.

To help organize cruises or receive additional information on CYC cruising events,  contact Andrew Bereson, CYC Fleet Captain Cruise.

On-Water Cruising Events

    • 26 Feb 2022
    • 27 Feb 2022
    • Blake Island Marina

    Enjoy the great beaches and trails for socially distanced day hikes. In the evening perhaps share a spaced out dinner & campfire.  Blake Island Marina has power at the dock, so we can plug in for heat on the boats!

    Blake Island is easy to get to from Shilshole - just a couple of hours motoring on Saturday and back on Sunday.   Of course a sail would be wonderful!  The marina has nice wide docks.   We will avoid rafting.  There are nice grounds and views right by the marina, as well as trails that circle the island.  The walk out to the West beach is level and makes a nice stroll.  

    The trip leader is Peggy Watt, and she can reached at

    Best regards,
