Welcome to Powerboating at SYC
Our club has a number of interesting and exciting events for members with powerboats. These include formal events with fun interactive themes, local and long-range cruises from Puget Sound to the Canadian Gulf Islands, and monthly dinners with exciting and informative speakers. In addition, the powerboat business committee conducts meetings on the first Thursday of every month at 5:00 pm in the Commodore Room. These meetings are open to the members and we encourage everyone to attend.
Detailed descriptions of boating activities can be seen in the dynamic Powerboat Calendar
Our dinner meetings in 2017 will include topics about boating in the Northwest and adventures from around the world. The dinner meetings are also a fun way to meet with fellow club members and share boating experiences.
We use the web site to provide information and communication about recent and upcoming powerboat events. You can view upcoming events in the calendar as well as review recent committee meeting minutes. We encourage you to take time and browse the web to learn about recent and upcoming powerboat related news.
We also have an active group of Predicted Log Racers who are involved with challenging their skills at various races around Puget Sound. Predicted Log Racing is a great opportunity to improve your knowledge of your boat and your skills of predicting the boat’s performance around a pre-planned course. If you just want to see what the Racers actually do, then we encourage you to volunteer to be an observer. It’s a great way to learn more about log racing. Check the Powerboat Calendar for Skull Sessions in January where you will learn how to predict your own course.
You can learn more about upcoming powerboat related events by reading the weekly Compass News and the monthly Binnacle, as well as the information here on the powerboat pages of the SYC web. Please click on the following links to learn more about the activities of the powerboat business committee.
