By: Chris McMulroch: Crews from 5 boats made a 2 hour cruise of the Woodland Park Zoo on Tuesday evening to see the Wild Lanterns exhibit. This was our second annual trip to see the colorful animated exhibit. Boats represented were: Altair, Lolo, Outlaw, Solstice and Wind Dancer. New this year was a huge walk-through shark lantern, a fully animated gigantic transformer man, and an amazing array of colorful insects and flowers. Special thanks to Paul Baker for his surprise treat of cookies to us all as we toured the lanterns!
Our next CYC cruise is an actual sail to Blake Island Marina the weekend of February 26-27. Bundle up and bring your electric cabin heater! This is an opportunity to check out your winter cruising gear on a short overnight across the sound, with an opportunity to meet up with fellow CYC cruisers out in the fresh air.
