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.

Our 2020 cruising schedule is ready! See the exciting list here: 2020 Cruising Calendar.pdf

    The Plan 

    Due to the current health restrictions the tractor parade and goat farm tours are canceled.  This cruise will be for individually anchored boats, no rafting this year.

    Enjoy hiking, and kayaking.

    All but hidden on the west side of Marrowstone Island, Mystery Bay State Park offers a great escape for visitors arriving by land or by water. Boaters can lay at anchor and stroll along the grassy and gravelly shoreline or enjoy the inlet’s pristine waters. Take along a kayak or paddle board for a day of recreation. Take in the Olympic mountain views from one of six picnic tables. Cook up those oysters and clams in one of three fire rings, (fires allowed during daylight hours) and enjoy an island sunset before heading back to your boat.

    Anchoring Notes: No rafting this year – sorry!  Anchor on your own or Mystery Bay State Park has mooring buoys, if available, first come first served. If you want details about how to enter the channel leading into Kilisut Harbor contact the cruise leader - it can be a bit tricky with a shallow, curving channel.

    Mystery Bay Memorial Day Events & Attractions

    Fort Flagler Historical State Park
    Tour and explore a significant coastal defense fort established more than a century ago to guard the entrance to Puget Sound. Fort Flagler activities include hiking, boating, kite-flying, beach exploration, saltwater fishing, clam digging and crabbing. Fort Flagler is approximately 2 miles from Mystery Bay (about a 15 minute dinghy ride) and there is a dinghy dock to park your boat while you go exploring. 

    Nordland General Store – if open

    The Mystery Bay State Park is located approximately one half mile north of the Nordland General Store (which also faces Mystery Bay) on Flagler Road (SR 116). The staff is welcoming, and it really is the center of the island.  An astounding selection smoked salmon, oysters, and ice cream.  Great beer and wine selection, and of course, they have ice to keep your cocktails nicely chilled. They also have a dinghy dock that is accessible when not at a minus tide.

    Mystery Bay State Park

    Dinghy the whole 80 yards over to the Mystery Bay State Park dinghy dock.. They have fire pits - bring firewood.

    CANCELED - Mystery Bay Farm - FARMSTEAD TOUR – canceled due to health restrictions

    CANCELED  - Nordland General Store "Tractor Days" Parade – canceled due to health restrictions

    One of the biggest weekend low tides of the summer! Search for intertidal creatures or look for rocks to avoid in the next race.  We ask that folks pack their own food and advise against sharing food (i.e. no potluck).  Enjoy lunch on the beach on an oasis in the middle of Puget Sound. 

    The Plan: Anchor individually in Blakely Harbor Saturday night. On Sunday, explore the rocks  at low tide. If you can't make it for the raft up on Saturday , then sail on over Sunday morning and anchor off the west side of the rocks.

    Please register so we know to expect you.

    Al and Jane Johnson

    As of May 15th, it is still on, pending the status of the marina for overnight stays.  If the marina is not open, Al will not attend, he prefers not to anchor.  However, if the marina is closed, you can anchor on the West side, and dinghy ashore for a hike. Stay tuned to the club web page for updates.

    Come along with CYC on Oct 10th across the sound to Eagle Harbor! We'll think positively and maybe rename this a "Fall Colors Other than Grey" cruise...

    There's water, electricity, pumpout, restrooms and a shower. The park is located just past the ferry dock on the north side of the harbor, directly east of the Queen City YC docks.

    More info is here:

    and here:

    CYC has reserved 100' of dock space and there should also be additional space available. Rafting is permitted and encouraged. We will build the raft with the largest boats against the dock as best as possible, so if you have a larger boat, please arrive early.

    Moorage cost is .50 a foot for _24 hours_ (whether you are rafted or not). Electricity (30/50 amp) is another $5 a day.

    The upland park is very nice with tables, etc. The park is located 3 blocks from Town & Country Market and downtown shopping.

    We'll plan on having a happy hour(s) starting around 4 pm, bring a nibble and BYOB.

    We'll also coordinate dinner reservations. Please notify Jack Connick (email address below) if anyone in your party is under 21 - it may change where the group is seated. Please sign up early so we can make those reservations, they get very busy on a Saturday night. Call or email us if you plan on just coming for dinner. Feel free to join us by ferry if you don't have a boat or a ride.

    We'll use VHF Channel 68 as our working channel. Our phone number is 206-284-6451.

    Please register so we know you are coming!
