Our outstation in the San Juan Islands is located in Roche Harbor, just west of the point where Mosquito Pass enters the bay. Look for a tall flagpole on shore with a large brick house behind it. At low tide, there are ten feet of water at the outer end of the floats with about six feet at the mid point. Fingers are installed on the west float which provide additional moorage in five to ten feet of water. Thirty ampere electrical service is available on the main floats.
Image is for reference only -- not for navigation.
Members should be aware that on a flood tide, the current at our floats is negligible; on an ebb tide the current can reach 3 knots from West to East.
The upper two floors of the brick house are the residence of the outstation's managers. The lower floor contains showers, heads, and the "Henry Room". The Henry Room features good seating, a fireplace, jigsaw puzzles, and reading material from the lending library.
Internet access is available by a broadband cable connection in the Henry Room; wireless internet service is available on the docks.
Deer abound on the island. They are often under the apple trees near the residence in evening and early morning. There is an enjoyable half-hour botanical trail.
Located on the beach between the docks is a small brick building containing sports equipment, ice machine, washing machine, and dryer. A fire pit is located on the beach for bonfires and barbecues. Two propane barbecues are available to members. A tennis court is also available.
The Club has a 4th of July celebration with barbecue, games, major "greenbox party," and just a wonderful social weekend. Because of limited boat space, members must reserve in advance. Watch for the Binnacle announcement each spring.
