    By: Jack Connick, trip leader

    Four CYC boats braved the weather forecasts on October 9 and 10th to gather in Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island at the Waterfront Park public dock.

    Maggie May decided to leave on Friday while the sun was out and enjoyed a quiet anchorage in Blakely Harbor for the night. Wind Dancer, Outlaw and Comet came over during the day on Saturday and had rollicking sails with winds gusting close to 20 knots. Comet had a large crew of five women with three from the MIT sailing club enjoying their first ride on a large boat.

    The dock and town were busy for a cool October weekend, but spots were found for all the boats directly on the dock. Early in the evening we gathered for a quick drink on Wind Dancer before gathering the 11 (fully vaccinated) group together to repair to the San Carlos restaurant for a Mexican dinner. We were given a room to ourselves and everyone enjoyed the food, company and conversation with their fellow sailors.

    After a blustery, wet night, the front passed through and the boats left by mid-day in near zero winds. Timing is everything this time of year on Puget Sound, and most got back to Shilshole just before the next rain front came through.

    The July 3-4 CYC cruise traveled to Poulsbo where Outlaw and Wind Dancer anchored and rafted in the late afternoon on Saturday.  While the official CYC raft up was small, there were many CYC boats, including Tula, Mara, Altair, Raven, and others in the harbor enjoying the warm summer evening.  Derek Storm and Cindy Gossett on Outlaw enjoyed happy hour and lovely conversation with Chris McMuldroch and Jennifer Lathrop on Wind Dancer.   We were visited by David Barnes from Gratitude and Joyce and Bret Phillips from Joyride.   After dinner, we relaxed and watched private fireworks displays. We were treated to a beautiful 360 degree show with some homes shooting fireworks that were just about as good as the usual big barge display, but just maybe not as high.  This was the first time we can remember watching fireworks in shorts and T-shirts.  The weather was just perfect. 

    Sunday morning Outlaw set sail planning to sail around Bainbridge Island.  Wind Dancer left soon afterwards headed to Langley on their way north for a two week cruise in the San Juan Islands.  Outlaw enjoyed a lovely beat through Port Orchard (the passage west of BI) toward Rich Passage in a nice southerly.  After we passed Point Glover we saw an eastbound ferry approaching.  As the eastbound ferry was passing us, we saw the west bound ferry entering the passage.  So we circled around outside the channel in the NE corner, watching the two ferries pass each other.  Something we never expected to see!

    Once the coast was clear we resumed our beat to the south anticipating a nice reach along the south shore of Bainbridge Island and then a run up to Port Madison.  However as we got to Bainbridge Reef, the wind shifted to the east and then back to the southeast and decreased in intensity.  So we dropped the sails and entered Blakely Harbor.

    The harbor was quite full of anchored boats but there was room for one more.  After a quiet night in Blakely Harbor we weighed anchor heading to Shilshole with a light south wind.  On the way out of the harbor we saw a deer swimming from the south shore across the harbor toward the north shore.  The second sight on the cruise we have never expected to see! By the time we got to Wing Point the wind came up so Outlaw set sail and returned to Shilshole.

    9 boats cruised to Port Orchard this weekend on an apparently record breaking temperature weekend! There temperatures hovered at plus or minus 100.   4 boats left Shilshole and Elliott Bay at 11 AM Saturday for a gentle sail downwind towards Restoration Point, and then the turn into Rich Passage at the South end of Bainbridge Island.  Around Blake Island we saw 4 freighters anchored waiting for slips to unload cargo.  Joyride led, Wind Dancer, Jubilado, and Sea Geek through the passage, while Serendipity came through an hour later, and Nancy Louise sailed across later in the afternoon after waiting a couple of hours to come out the Ballard Locks.

    With a gentle breeze cooling Port Orchard, we met up with Maggie May, Amelia, and Anakena at the guest dock where we mingled, and met friends we hadn’t seen since 2019 - prior to the pandemic.   Some crews, went ashore to find an air conditioned pub, and an appreciated cool ice cream shop.  Instead of tramping up to the hot shore for a potluck, we enjoyed hors d-oeuvres in each other cockpits.  Later, tired, we all slept with hatches open until the cool morning arrived.

    Sunday the 20 of us gathered under the shade of the picnic shelter of the party float for breakfast of eggs, cobbler, bread, and other fun food.  As the temperature rose to about 80 degrees, we began our departures for home.  Maggie May headed for a week in South Sound, while Anakena provisioned for a month in the San Juan Islands.  Boats headed for Seattle, were swept out by a 4 knot ebb current through Rich Passage.  As we headed out into Puget Sound we were greeted with a really strong Northerly thermal of up to 25 knots!  On hearing this our commodore thought we might have had a ripping good sail back up the sound, but on Wind Dancer we were pretty tired, and just enjoyed the shade of the bimini, and the nice ebb tide with the occasional spray over the bow as we motored home.

    Shilshole was about 90 degrees, and at home away from the water, it was at least 10 degrees warmer.  Two boats were air conditioned, but we were all lucky to feel the breeze come through the hatches both days at Port Orchard.  I never thought it before, but we may add a ‘how to stay cool cruising in Puget Sound – air conditioning, fans, hatches and wind scoops’ topic to our list of cruising topics!

    This was our 8th weekend cruise of the year.  Each one has been enjoyable.  Our next cruise will be for a low key fireworks July 3rd anchored in Poulsbo, after which more of us head off for summer cruises, until we return for the Commodore and Gibson races / cruise to Port Ludlow in August.  Our July and August Second Thursday cruising socials will be on Zoom, maybe we will have a clubhouse event as well, but we expect to return to clubhouse pot lucks in September.

    Thank you everyone for a fun flotilla sail out, and very enjoyable relaxing weekend.

    Stay cool this week, and Happy cruising!

    Memorial Day Mystery Bay Cruise

    We had a nice showing for the 2021 Mystery Bay Cruise. This year we also did a fair amount of pre-planning with Puget Sound Sailing Club. In all we had 9 CYC boats, 6 PSCC boats and 2 that were members of both. Almost all attendees were fully vaccinated! 

    Many of the PSCC boats and a couple of ours traveled northbound on Friday to Port Ludlow for a leisurely overnight. High tides were very early morning and late evening, making for a limited window of exiting and entering Kilisut Harbor – the access to Mystery Bay. 

    Several CYC boats attempted a coordinated departure from Meadow Point on Saturday morning, but some of us straggled out and missed the 10AM rendezvous. Nevertheless, we sailed upwind in a nice breeze but against a strong flood for 2-4 hours (depending on the boat) before switching on the iron sail. While under wind power, 2 whale-watching boats were spotted just north of Edmonds which was a dead giveaway for a pod of Orcas that were frolicking nearby. Sure enough, they put on quite a show for about ½ hr before we sailed out of view. 

    Part of the flotilla went west through the Port Townsend Ship Canal while others took to the east side of Marrowstone. The westerly boats had a 4 knot flood pushing against them, so it was slow going, but that was OK, because there had been a minus tide shortly before, and it was very shallow. They had to be really careful following the channel. Maggie May noted the channel seemed have shifted a bit from the charted position. Still, the westerly boats arrived sooner to the top end of Marrowstone Island, but then chose to hole up around Port Townsend while waiting for the tide to rise to traverse the shallow and winding route into the harbor. 

    There was a strong side current pushing and pulling boats as they entered the bending and narrow channels of the harbor, and at least a couple of newbies fell into the wrong path briefly. The rising tide was a relief and got them back on course quickly. New members aboard Pert were the first to arrive at Mystery Bay around 3 pm. By 7 pm, all boats had arrived and most rafted up in 3 anchored rafts: a large CYC raft of 8, a smaller PSCC raft of 6, a 2 boat CYC raft, and ‘Pert’ found a mooring ball near the park. The main CYC raft anchored alternating bow to stern, with 3 anchors to the East and 3 anchors to the West to make a very stable raft.  Describing the configuration, and suggesting how to set the anchor, back in, and throw a mooring line to the raft was really challenging on the VHF!  We were not so practiced at this kind of maneuvering.  Some boats discovered unexpected anchor winch issues, and some had backing upwind while anchoring issues.  None of us have much practice doing this stuff so it is tough for everyone!  However, lots of neutral gears, with slow speeds, along with some roving fenders, with lots of volunteer hands ultimately led to success. Even the most professionally operated boat set the anchor twice, and took plenty of time coming alongside the raft very gently. Paya gave us an inspiring demonstration of boat handling!  With vaccines under our belts, many were able to do some boat hopping and socializing before dark.

    Sunday morning we met at the park to walk over to the Mystery Bay Goat Farm tour.  This is about the 8th time CYC has scheduled a visit to the farm, and this time we were joined by a handful of PSSC sailors, making us quite a large group.  The family’s eldest daughter, now 12, has lead a portion of the tour since she was about 7. It was fun to see her, and now her younger brother proudly explaining the workings of the farm. There were about eight 2 month old goats that were adorable endured a lot of petting and attention! Chris spotted a Halberg Rassey sailboat in a neighboring field, and had to ask why it was there!  The owner had moved on to a new boat or other pastimes and was keeping it as more of a memento than anything else was the story. OK, that was not supposed to be part of the tour.  Several of us bought cheeses and yogurt and other random items from the kids at the farm.   

    The tractor parade almost didn’t happen…  The goat farm had heard that it was happening which they passed on to us, but the rest of town hadn’t gotten the memo! One neighbor had just learned about it the night before and showed up with a tractor that she had lovingly decorated with flowers, another noticed our group of 20 standing around and ran up to get their hand crank tractor, and the goat farm brought out theirs. So there were 3 tractors in the parade - a ghost of previous years…  And the goat farm’s bucket loader gave all the kids (and Andy) a ride high up in the air. We clapped and hollered for the show they put on for us! Thank you Racheal, Scott, Cora, and Quint for welcoming us to Nordland. We look forward to the reopening of the store, and the return of the ‘big’ tractor parade we always enjoy. If you are so moved, the Nordland Store (that normally organizes the parade) is doing a gofundme fundraiser to help get the store back up and running. HERE IS THE LINK.

    At 5 PM we had a dinghy & kayak race from the park dock around the PSCC raft, and back. The race was officiated by Steve and Elsie from PSSC and was a lot longer than it seemed for those of us furiously rowing around the course. Scott & Kristen took the prize for the paddles class in their double kayak. One of theirs took the prize for the rowing class, moving almost as fast as the last paddler, and John and Sue got the award for persistence.  Much fun, and no protests!  

    After the race, we shared happy hour at the park dock where PSCC and CYC crews socialized an some ate dinner.  Finally, a few folks gathered for an evening fire in the picnic area.   

    To avoid the worst of the 4 knot ebb tide in Admiralty Inlet, we decided to break up the big raft at 7:15 AM Sunday morning.  In beautiful sunshine we got this started on time, but ran into some snags.  Literally anchor snags!  Wind Dancer pulled up Serendipity’s chain, and did Second Sun grapple Water Music’s chain too ? So we departed a bit later than planned…  But we had an impressive chain of boats winding out through the channel into Port Townsend Bay!  It was fun to have all the boats in a kind of impromptu yacht club commodore sail-pass formation!

    Wind Dancer followed Jubilado across Admiralty Inlet to Whidbey Island at Bush Point to avoid the heavier current in the center and West side of the channel.  The scenery was new to us, and fun to see.  After Double Bluff we headed across to the Kitsap Peninsula side South of Foul Weather Bluff to follow the 50 and 30 foot beach contours - again avoiding the main current. We arrived in Shilshole about 3 PM to find several of the boats waiting turns at the pump outs.  This was not exactly supposed to be one of the planned rendezvous activities, but stuff happens.

    Low-tide Cruise to Blakely Rock - by Andy Bereson

    The weather was not promising. Nonetheless, 8 CYC boats braved the conditions and, with a little flexibility, were rewarded with great company, good food, and a beautiful day on “the Rock”.

    Second Sun and Anakeena arrived in Blakely Harbor on Friday evening around six pm. Second Sun set her anchor and Anakeena came alongside. The rain held off and this was a great opportunity for Kate and I to make new friends with Bill and Debbie tied alongside. In the morning, we were joined by Island Mist (Tom and Cary) and Solstice (Peg and Ron) who each dropped anchors in opposite directions and joined the growing raft.

    Noting the fabulously clear weather and aware of a forecast for solid rain on Sunday the group decided to adjust plans (according to Andy and Kate of Second Sun, “Plan” is a four letter word) and head to Blakely Rock for the low tide on Saturday, instead of the planned visit and pot-luck Sunday. We blasted out emails and text messages to other boats planning to join us to alert them to the change in plans. At around 1130 we all hopped in our tenders and headed out to the rock. On our way out, we passed Wind Dancer (Chris and Jennifer) coming in to the harbor and suggested to Chris that he come anchor by Blakely Rock and join us there, which he did.

    On Blakely Rock, Andy and Kate set out a large canopy for shade and the crew spent a couple hours tide-pooling and hanging out in the shade. Among all the usual goodies we found the head of a large salmon, a headless baby seal and a dead octopus. We also found endless sea stars, sea cucumbers, crabs, anemones, and countless other sea creatures. There were some oyster catchers who seemed to be protecting a nest next to the light tower.

    Shortly after we arrived on the rock we saw Mara (Mara, Gregg and Griffin) and Tula (Bob and Margeret) enter the harbor. A short while later, they were joining us out on the Rock. When our two little ones, Nat (10) and Anna (7) saw that the new arrivals included another small person, Griffin (8), the fun went up a few notches. Also joining us on the island was a little speedboat that came for the day with Debbie’s (of Anakeena) two brothers and sister-in-law.

    When the water started to overtake the beach we folded the canopy and headed back to the raft where we were soon joined by Outlaw (Derek and Cindy). The balance of the afternoon was spent socializing in the various cockpits and enjoying an extended happy hour.

    Sunday morning was rainy. Outlaw, Mara and Tula departed late morning. After they took off the rain gave a pause and the remaining crew gathered on Island Mist for a pot-luck brunch. First Wind Dancer and then Second Sun departed after brunch. The rain came again, slowly at first, and then picking up as we motored the windless sound back to Shilshole. Though the sunshine was of the damp sort much of the weekend, the sunny day on Blakely Rock and all the great company made the weekend cruise most delightful.

    Seven CYC boats cruised to Langley May 1st and 2nd.  Four boats met at Meadow Point Saturday morning at 9 AM, to sail down wind towards Edmonds.  It was fun to watch all the boats racing past us flying spinnakers on their way to Possession Point.  When the breeze went down, and our flotilla began motor sailing, we caught up to the racers again.  We had some drizzle entering Possession Sound, and then the sun came out as we tied up inside the big breakwater at Langley.  Some crews walked up to the town for some afternoon pizza, and ice cream, while watching Orcas from the bluff.  As everyone already had their Covid vaccinations, we gathered for conversation at a picnic table by the beach before dinner.  The restaurants in town were fully booked while operating at 50% capacity in the current phase of the pandemic, so we ate on our own boats Saturday evening.  Sunday morning we awoke to beautiful sunshine and light air.  After talking on the dock after breakfast, we began to depart for home around 11 AM, riding a big ebb tide back down Possession Sound, and enjoying a glorious sunny day and glassy smooth water!  The boats were:  Wind Dancer - Chris and Jennifer, Charlotte - Al and Jane, Rissa - Mike McGuane, Vinca - Joel, Gail, Lily and a friend, Shadowfax - David and Kathleen,  Serendipity - Al and Cyndi, Strange Attractor - Jeremy and Jerda.

    Our next CYC cruise is on Memorial Day weekend anchoring in Mystery Bay on Marrowstone Island.

    April 8 – Cruiser Tips & Tricks & things that make your cruising experience better.

    The April cruising social focused on tips and tricks and things that make your cruising life more enjoyable and perhaps you can’t live without. We have hosted this event in the past and every time there are new ideas that surface. Below is a summary of the suggestions that were shared by the group this year.

    Plexus plastic cleaner and protectant/polish is a spray that Peggy uses on all their windows and vinyl surfaces on the boat. It was developed by the aviation industry and works on all vinyl window, hatch covers and most all plastic surfaces. Use with microfiber cloth for best results .

    Check out Waggoneers Guide for lots of information about traveling from Seattle to Alaska. This guide has more information than just on anchorages. It has valuable information about transiting, vhf radio, tides and more.

    Chris loves his fender hangers for quick adjustment of his fenders when coming into a new dock.

    Many of us know about Luci lanterns but a new product by Luci lights was suggested by Mara – it is a string of lights that is solar powered .  And they come in colors too. These offer a new dimension to soft lighting. For more on the good things that Luci does https://mpowerd.com/pages/impact


    Bill loves his stainless steel French coffee press which led to a discussion of small coffee grinders for the boat.  He also likes Gear Ties – industrial strength twist ties. Twist it, tie it and reuse it. They are handy for tying just about anything. They come in all sizes and bright colors and are available at your local hardware store and Fisheries.

    .

    Another good low tech suggestion came from Keith (who happens to be cruising in Mexico right now – the beauty of the Zoom calls). He loves his soft shackles which he uses for connecting metal blocks to metal toe rails or any other metal to metal to eliminate the wear and tear on the metal. He uses line made with Dyneema for super strength and minimum fraying. They are easy to make (see YouTube) or you can purchase them.

    One favorite for Paul and Suzette are the motion sensor lights in cabinets or even in the refrigerator. These lights make seeing into those dark holes much easier. They are readily available online. Paul also likes TriFlow lubricant for lubing the sail track – makes for an easy job of raising and lowering your sails.

    Hans recently removed a big trip hazard on his deck by installing stantion mounted fair leads for his roller furling lines.

    Moving on to more sophisticated high tech equipment – David likes his Vesper Marine AIS transmitter and receiver providing additional safety factors on his boat. And most importantly he likes the Anchor watch app that comes with this equipment which promotes sound sleep at anchor. He knows that in the rare event his anchor drags, this app will set off an alarm. He knows it works because the alarm has gone off when he went to raise his anchor in the morning. 

    A must have on Derek’s boat is a LED flashlight with magnet and red light function.

    On a rainy day, Bret can’t live without his plastic squeegee for clearing the water off his dodger windows. It is much more efficient that using a rag which will just smear the water around. Thanks Bret.

    A couple of other items worth mentioning – we discussed filtering drinking water (many boats do this) and it was suggested that you test your manual bilge pump on a fairly regular basis (when was the last time you tested yours?) so if you ever do need it, you know it works.

    Hope to see you at the next cruising Social.

    We had a wonderful sail in up to 12 knots of a gentle breeze from Shilshole to Kingston for our club cruise  April 17-18.  Altair, Serendipity, Ete, Vinca, Wind Dancer, and Nancy Marie all sailed up the sound from Meadow Point about 11 AM.  We had a kind of sailing flotilla, crossing tacks, and taking pictures.   Outlaw and Lolo arrived a little later.   We welcomed Fred on Nancy Marie and Joel on Vinca each for their first club cruise!  New members Al and Cyndi with their beautiful Sabre 42 Serendipity came on their second cruise on Puget Sound.  After sailing on the dew of the Chesapeake Bay, Puget Sound is the real deep for Serendipity!  We had the best weather with sunshine and a temperature in the 70’s both days!  In Kingston some of us enjoyed Saturday afternoon crepes, and at diner we all had pizzas-to-go to eat socially distanced in the dockside outdoor gazebo or onboard the boats.  Sunday we woke to a warm and very calm day for the motor home to Shilshole.  Our next club cruise is a bit longer up to Langley May 3d and 4th.   Hope to see you there!

    Best regards,

    Chris McMuldroch

    On Saturday, March 20, 2021 four boats from CYC sailed into Blakely Harbor; Altair a Sceptre 41; Tula a J/40; Mara a Buchan 37; and Lolo a J/37.  Despite the weather warning, we had a pleasant sail from Shilshole to Bainbridge Island, even if the wind dropped from a gentle breeze to light air - it was nice to shake out our sails.  Mara rafted up to Tula, but then they are family (Bob & Margaret with Mara); whereas Altair (Paul & Suzette) and Lolo (David & Gyung) each chose to anchor a decent swing radius away from the rafted sailboats.   That afternoon, Suzette and Paul by dingy visited each of the cruising sailboats.  When they arrived at the anchored Lolo, Paul was handed a large contractor’s size garbage bag, and we all agreed let’s go to shore and clean-up whatever trash we may find around the public beach and the Blakely mill pond jetty bridge.  So, six of us met ashore, and collected around 40 pounds of garbage including quite a bit of plastic as the weather changed from sun to drizzle. 

     

    We called it as the clouds suggested this be a good time to get back to our boats.  Mara took some pictures and we said we can do a dingy rendezvous by Tula around sunset as we all oared or paddled back to our sailboats.  Well by the time we got to our boats, I think we independently came to the same conclusion, once out of foulies, down below and warm, going back out did not have quite the same appeal, so no dingy rendezvous.  It did rain most of the night, and this sailor found it quite tranquil.  I did wake up once and validated all our boats were still in the same swing position.  Such a great anchorage and I thought if it had not been for CYC, probably there would not have been any visiting sailboats (or boats) in Blakely Harbor that night.  Sunday morning, we all heard that we had small craft advisories for Puget Sound, and although it was quite peaceful in the harbor, we all needed to get back.  Paul & Suzette put their dingy to one last use for the morning and came by to pay their visit to each anchored boat sharing their plan to pull Altair’s hook and head back.  Gyung and I though that was best for us too; and as I was preparing my windless to pull up the anchor; out of my peripheral vision I realized there was Bob & Margaret on Tula coming around Lolo just to wish us a good sail back.  It was a great sail back, and out of the south we had a steady fresh to strong breeze with 24 knot puffs.  Gyung and I decided to just raise the main so with a double reef in, we sailed from just north adjacent of Blakely rock all the way to Shilshole without ever having to jibe.  Most of the trip our speed over ground was a steady 7 to 7.5 knots, so with a J/37 we were surfing. However, just because we like to sail in a breeze, does not mean we like docking with a blow astern.  Imagine our relief to see Suzette & Paul standing by our slip waving to let us know they were there to catch lines.  I am incredibly grateful for their help especially with that last puff as we made the final boat length into Lolo’s slip.  I am so glad we all got to be out on the water and flying our CYC burgees.  While the weather may have been wet and blustery; we still got some rays of sunshine, and after all we did mark the first day of spring sailing within view of a glorious Seattle skyline.

    The last weekend in February we had the first cruise of 2021 to the Blake Island Marina. It was a nice weekend with moderate southerly winds for a beat down on Saturday and a nice run back to Shilshole on Sunday with some boats hoisting spinnakers. Six CYC boats with 14 people attended plus a family of three that were thinking of becoming members. They had a great time with us on Saturday and signed up to become members via the CYC website Sunday morning. The wonders of modern technology!! Welcome to Nathan, Vanessa and Evelyn!! We are excited to have you as some of our newest members.

    The marina was full with 17 boats Saturday night. An additional 15 other boats had tried for spots without luck. The marina was a busy place on a nice winter weekend. All of the CYC boats managed to get a spot on the dock with Cruise Leader Morris Lowitz arriving last and having to wait on a mooring outside the marina until they could take the Load/Unload spot at dusk. A spot on the dock opened up first thing Sunday morning so they had a place on the dock instead of having to go back out to a mooring for breakfast. Morris brought his three person J-80 crew to help him sail his Jeanneau 44 Keala for the weekend. Thanks Morris for stepping up to lead this cruise. In fact this was not only Morris’ first time as Cruise Leader, but also his first CYC Cruise period. The other boats on the cruise were Solstice, Altair, Tula, Mara andMaggie May plus our new members on their Beneteau 393 Equilibrium.

    Saturday we had informal socially distanced cocktails on the dock at 5:00 with some people sitting on their boats. Everyone then did their own dinner before meeting up ashore for a fire. The group at the fire was never more than ten as people came and left during the evening by chance. We had a second campfire going in the event the group was larger at any one time and we needed to split up into two groups. The Shelters that we usually use for a potluck dinner and fire are currently closed due to COVID Restrictions. We took hikes around the island or out to the West End in small groups, great exercise and the chance to visit with old friends or make new acquaintances, even if the trails were a bit muddy in places.  A great start to the CYC Cruising Season and a wonderful group.
