Going Cruising?  Consider utilizing our reciprocal moorage at many locations:  2022 Reciprocity Map.   For more details, click on reciprocity in the menu bar above.


Visitors: Reciprocal moorage rights at Shilshole: we will reimburse up to two boats per night. Click on "Reciprocity" above for more information and the form.

CYC Members: Please check with any yacht club before arrival regarding whether they are allowing guest moorage and / or reciprocal rights.

CYC organizes cruises that provide an opportunity for social weekend cruising, create an environment to exchange cruising knowledge, and provide opportunities for families to enjoy cruising. Cruises can always be added to the CYC calendar. Is there someplace you think it would be fun to visit with friends? Join us and organize and lead a cruise.

On the Second Thursday of each month, the cruising group hosts a cruising social. The CYC Cruisers Social is an opportunity for CYC members to connect with other CYC cruisers to share cruising knowledge. We often have a specific program focusing on cruising topics or an open forum of discussion. We have returned to In Person Cruisers Socials (with a Zoom option) at the recently refurbished CYC Clubhouse. If you would like to participate via Zoom, please register to receive the link. Cruising Socials are a potluck format. Please bring something fun and delicious to share as well as your own beverage.

To help organize cruises or receive additional information on CYC cruising events,  contact Jenny Heins, CYC Fleet Captain Cruise.

    • Port Blakely (Blakely Harbor)

    March 18-19 Port Blakely Raft Up

    S/V Whale Shadow will host the event as the cruise leaders. We hope you’ll consider joining us in this lovely anchorage where we’ll likely have views of downtown — weather depending. This anchorage offers many possibilities to drop the hook and has relatively good holding.

    We’ll have a loose set of plans for the event, but the highlights include several hiking options. The nearest and easiest is the Blakely Harbor Park Trail at the head of the bay. The longer option includes the first trail and leads to another which will take us to Fort Ward park where we can see the ruins of the old fort. Bring along your desired small crafts as this bay also offers good paddling, kayaking, and small craft sailing opportunities.

    We’ll plan to monitor VHF channel 72 for incoming boats wishing to raft up or to anchor near others.

    Finally, if there’s anything we can do for you, please reach out to via the member directory or the CruisersCYCSeattle discussion list between now and the event.

    FYI: There will be a negative tide in the evening. Unfortunately, it will be after dark at 2124.
