Feb 25-26 – Blake Island Marina Family Cruise
On the last weekend of February we have our first sailing cruise of the year to beautiful Blake Island Marine State Park. This is my first time as cruise leader, and I hope to make this a fun experience for everyone.
Blake Island is a short distance from Shilshole, and moorage is available on a first come first serve basis. Though I doubt we'll run into problems in February, it might be better to plan to arrive by midday Saturday, despite the tides being against us on Saturday morning. (see here). However, we'll have the tide pushing us back home if we leave midday on Sunday
I am looking forward to trying my brand new Magma grill, and if we have a good turnout we can plan for a grilling fest at one of the fire pits followed by marshmallows roasting and smores. I will also make some hot toddies for everyone to enjoy.
As a reminder, bring extra trash bags as we are required to pack all of our waste, and make sure you secure your provisions at night: the local raccoon population will not hesitate to raid your pantry if they get access to it.
Please reach out to me for questions and activity ideas. Looking forward to seeing you there!
