    Originally billed in the recent publication of the Telltale as a monthly business networking and book club event, the fortuitous loss of our author/speaker has opened up a new direction. 

    This first meeting will center around an idea inspired by a photo shoot of notable female sailors in this year’s Sydney-Hobart race.  

    The idea is this:

    Stage our own photo shoot of female sailors in the Puget Sound region, and tell their stories as part of a public outreach to inspire more youth and female sailors to join the sailing community. 

    We will tap the energies and resources of our local businesses, maritime industry, sailing community and club members, in an effort to benefit the future of sailing and racing in the PNW. 

    Here’s the article that inspired this conversation-https://livesaildie.com/girl-power-the-women-of-the-rolex-sydney-hobart-yacht-race/

    And this is their photo shoot call -https://livesaildie.com/calling-all-female-sailors-racing-in-the-2018-rolex-sydney-hobart/

    We look forward to seeing you at the event - bring your friends, your favorite beverage, ideas for nominees and stories and be prepared to jump right in - there will be plenty of opportunities to help!

    Come enjoy this local gem of an island - the great beaches and trails for day hikes. In the evening we will share dinner & campfire in protection of a shelter. Bring your instruments and favorite campfire stories.  Register to let us know you are coming. Here are more details courtesy of the cruise organizer, Shez Tucker:

    My name is Shez.  I volunteered to host this year's Blake Island cruise February 23rd and 24th.

    Here is the plan -- 

    Arrival
    I will be there Saturday around 1 p.m. but feel free to arrive whenever you want. I will be monitoring Channel 68 on my handheld VHF, my cell phone is 206-380-7417 if you would rather call. Call me for dock info and/or arrival times so I can help with the lines or whatever you need. We should have plenty of room but be open to rafting up if needed.

    If you have a park pass, it's free to stay at the dock but electric is $6.  If you don't have a park pass the rate is $0.70 per foot + electric.

    Dinner
    Potluck style in the shelter at 5 p.m.  Let's plan on starting a big fire a 4 p.m. to warm things up.  

    BRING FIREWOOD!  It is illegal to burn wood from the island.  If you don't have a big pile of oak in your backyard like me, buy a small bundle from the store or break up a pallet from the side of the road.  The more the better!

    Breakfast
    Also potluck style. Let's play this one by ear. If we have left over wood we could go back up to the shelter at 9:30 a.m.  Or we my choose to have breakfast on a boat.  If you're not into breakfast no big deal, but at least there will be a plan.  We can talk it over while enjoying the fire.

    Again my name is Shez, my wife is Michelle, and our boat is Red Hot.  I can't wait to see who shows up to the first cruise of the season. Should be a good time and a good reason to get off the dock.  

    Let's kick the season off right!

    Help support youth sailing on Puget Sound!

    • Fantastic dinner
    • Live auction
    • Entertainment provided by the High School Racing Team

    Tickets $50 - includes dinner, dessert, and two drinks

    Only 80 tickets available - register soon!

    Come experience a live auction, listen to speakers, and have a nice and relaxing home cooked dinner, while supporting CYC junior sailing. You may have the opportunity to get a sailing lesson with members of the race team, receive a boat haul-out or sail repair, get home cooked meals and desserts, and much more. Proceeds go to support scholarships for CYC summer camps, and new boats and coaching for the high school race team.

    Competitive dinghy sailing is an incredible opportunity that involves traveling to weekly regattas in locations all over Washington and competing against other high school teams. The past year a few CYC members and several dedicated young sailors have been forming the new Ballard High School sailing team, and King’s High School will be joining them this spring season. There has been much success and great potential. By donating to this cause, you will be helping further accessibility for sailing opportunities. Can't go but would like to donate an item or funds? Email Juniors@cycseattle.org. Your support is greatly appreciated.

    Join us and learn to race sailboats!

    Corinthian Yacht Club offers several ways to help you get started sailboat racing or brush up on your skills. The Rookie Rally Educational series provides a solid foundation of racing skills via classroom instruction, hands-on exercises, and on-the-water activities. It is primarily a class room course with one-on-the water session. Our educational committee members are also glad to meet with you to help you work towards your racing goals.

    Bruce Van Deventer will be leading this educational series. Bruce is an experienced keelboat and dinghy racer, competing in everything from club races to international and world championships. He is also an experienced race officer and currently campaigns a 505 and a Melges 24.

    What this course includes:

    Tuesday, May 7 “Welcome to the Racecourse”: Walk through a typical race, handicap racing, one design, distance vs buoy races, paperwork/organizational requirements, conduct of a race per the racing rules of sailing, reading sailing instructions, starting sequence, and basic rules.

    Tuesday, May 14 Starting & Upwind Legs: Rules during starting, finding the favored end of the line, standard starting tactics, the advantaged side of the course vs the advantaged side of the starting line, rules when sailing to windward, and at the weather mark.

    Tuesday, May 21 Finishing & Downwind Legs: Downwind angles, gybing on wind shifts, rules when sailing downwind, leeward mark rounding rules and tactics, favored end of the finish line, rules when finishing.

    Tuesday, May 28 Boat Speed Basics: Foils above and below the water, balance, main, jib, and rig controls, windward sail trim in light, medium, and heavy air, downwind trim, how to read a tuning guide, basic tuning for keelboats.

    On-the-water Training
    We expect to have at least one on-the-water practice session at Shilshole at the end of the series. We also will provide you with the opportunity to come out and help with the Race Committee on a weeknight race, which puts you in the center of the action! You need to have appropriate sailing gear, including a PFD, and basic sailing skills. This is a great opportunity to expand your skill base, move to another position on the boat, or start racing your own boat!

    Recommended textbooks to purchase for the class:
    Getting Started in Sailboat Racing by Adam Court and Richard Stearns
    Understanding the Racing Rules of Sailing by Dave Perry

    This is a primarily classroom course.

    This camp introduces kids to the basics of sailing a small boat by putting them in the driver’s seat of an Opti sailboat. An Opti is a very stable boat with one sail so it is ideal for beginners. The main focus of this repeatable camp is the development of basic skills for a strong sailing foundation. Beginner 1 is a good fit for brand new sailors. 

    Ages: 7-12

    Prerequisites: no experience necessary

    Time: Camp runs from 9:30-4:00, drop-off/pick-up is available 30 minutes before/after the camp session 

    All our sail camps require your child to pass a simple safety check in the water for liability. This safety check is performed during the morning on Monday, and does not require any swimming ability. Please be aware that if your child cannot enter the water, they will be asked to not come back and we cannot offer a refund.
