Seattle Yacht Club has various types of cruising events for its members scheduled throughout the year. Some are high-end bashes with themes and costumes, while others are low-key gatherings of like-minded boaters, both sail and power.
The table below presents summaries of most of the repeating events. Dates for each event are found in the Cruising/Cruising Calendar (logged-in members only). Clicking on the event in the calendar generally displays the cruise details and sign-up information. Often sign-ups are only allowed after a stated date and some of the larger events have limits as to the number of people who can register. Events are advertised two to three months in advance in the Binnacle magazine and a few weeks ahead in the online CompassNEWS newsletter (these links are for logged-in members only).
