Dec 9 @ 5:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Hosted by Mike Sisk

5:00pm—Captains’ Meeting—Clubhouse
6:00pm—Parade Time—Swinomish Channel

BOAT DECORATING ON THE GUEST DOCK

Stews, soups and salads to follow the parade at the clubhouse. Everyone please bring a dessert to share as we have a Merry time.

This is a big event that the whole town gets up for, as it brings a lot of people into town. The entire boardwalk along the water is full, as are the restaurants. The theme this year for the parade is Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation so get the creative juices flowing as we decorate our boats. I have invited the Fidalgo Yacht Club to join us this year for the parade.

Let’s light up those boats!!!

Clubhouse Cleanup/Shakedown Cruise @ SYC Clubhouse
Apr 7 @ 8:00 am – Apr 8 @ 11:45 pm

The annual spring club cleanup is fast approaching. Our work list has been lightened a bit. Our focus will be on pressure washing the decks and walkways, raking up the grass areas, window cleaning and a once over on the club interior. We will work from 8:00 am until about noon. After that, it’s off for our annual shakedown cruise to Coronet Bay State Park. ( exciting details below! )

*** We would love to see everyone at both events, but we do understand busy schedules. If you can’t make it to the cleanup, please come for the shakedown cruise/chili feed!

The Stinson’s and Ruth’s will be bringing pressure washers.
We are in need of someone to bring a truck to be used to haul leaves, light brush, etc. to the dump.
We will need a few rakes, both hard and soft as well as people to use them!
Misc. cleaning supplies will be provided


Coronet Bay Shake Down Cruise & Chili Feed

The Ruth’s will be hosting a chili, cornbread and hot dog feed dockside at Coronet Bay. Adult beverages will be provided. Those attending are invited to bring an appetizer, a side or dessert to share. (The chili is my mother in laws famous Blue Ribbon “not too spicy” 7 bean recipe, whom I intend to draft to make it to ensure I don’t screw it up. I am so sure that you’ll love it, I will give you a 100% money back guarantee! )

Dock space is on a first come first serve basis. Don’t worry, we expect plenty of space this time of the year. But… if it gets full, we’ll just raft together! We are the SYC! There’s always room for more!

4/7/18 4:00 pm Dockside social hour with appetizers and adult beverages

5:00 pm Chili, cornbread, Hot Dogs and all the fixings served
