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 committee conducts meetings are on the second 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 2018 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 host Navigational Rallies (aka Predicted Log Racing) around Puget Sound. These Navigational Contests are a great opportunity to improve your knowledge of your boat and your skills of predicting the boat’s performance around a designated course.
