Goat Island/Fort Whitman Dinghy Cruise

An informal dinghy cruise from SYC reciprocal dock in La Conner to Fort Whitman on
Goat Island, Saturday, June 23rd.

We are meeting for lunch at the La Conner Pub at 1 p.m. After lunch, we will meet at our dinghies at the recip dock at 2 p.m.
From there, we will take our dinghies to Goat Island at the south end of the channel , land our dinghies on the beach, and take a short walk to Fort Whitman. Fort Whitman is an abandoned pre-WW1 U.S. Army base (now a state park), complete with four gun emplacements, all hidden in the woods on the west side of Goat Island.

Pirates in Paradise @ Sucia @ Sucia
Aug 10 @ 8:00 am – Aug 12 @ 1:00 pm

This event was scheduled to be the annual Crash ‘n’ Burn. However, we have decided to take some liberties this year and change it to a good old fashioned campout with a pirate theme.
Thurs. 8/9 Big boats to land on the dock. Contact Jeff or Mitch if you can help

Fri. 8/10 Arrival of the fleet
6pm. BYOB & potluck appys. on the dock

Sat. 8/11
8am. Coffee & eye-openers on the dock
10am. Pirate ship auction
For those new to SYC, we’ll be bringing back the ever-popular pirate ship race (aka horse race) on the docks. This has been very popular because there are only 6 ships available (wood cut-outs) that are auctioned off to the highest bidder. In past years, these have gone for as much as $300 each so many boats pool their money together to win the bids. This is significant because half of the total money raised at the auction goes to the winner of the race …yes, it can be sizable! After you take possession of your ship, then you spend the morning decorating it for yet another prize for best decorated ship & captain. So bring your auction money and decorating supplies to maximize your winnings.
11am. – 2pm. Pirate ship decorating and perhaps a cribbage tournament
Dress up those boats and yourselves to strike fear in the islands with SYC’s armada of its scariest pirates and ships. There will be prizes awarded, of course, for the best dressed/decorated.
2pm. – 4pm. Pirate ship race
6pm. Potluck dinner in the picnic shelter
Bring a dish to share, plates & utensils. (If you bring extra guests, but sure to bring enough for everyone)
A-I Main dish
J-R Side dish or salad
S-Z Dessert
For those with musical abilities, please bring your instruments and if anyone can bring some wood for a fire that would be great.
