Though our regular schedule -- described below -- has been interrupted by COVID, we continue to schedule events. The club enjoyed spending the Memorial Day weekend 2022 at the Kingston Marina.
July 3-5, 2022 Cruise / Anchor Out: Members can meet in Lake Washington or at any point along the way. July 3: Cruise Lake Washington, through the locks, to anchor-out in Poulsbo's Liberty Bay. On July 4, cruise to Lake Union to anchor-out and watch the Seattle fireworks show.
Sept. 2-5, 2022 Labor Day Weekend: Rendezvous / drive-in opportunity at the Bremerton or Port Orchard marina (TBD) to enjoy the annual Blackberry Festival, hosted at the Bremerton marina. If we're at the Port Orchard marina, we'll take the foot ferry back and forth to Bremerton's waterfront.
Typical Seabacs Schedule (Pre / Post COVID):
The Seabacs Boat Club plans marina cruises and anchor-out events an average of seven times per year from March through October, usually kicking things off with a St. Patrick’s Day weekend cruise in March and culminating with an Autumn festival cruise in October. We typically host rendezvous cruises at the following marinas: Kingston, Port Orchard, Bremerton, Oak Harbor, Silverdale, Swantown (Olympia), Longbranch, Bell Harbor (downtown Seattle), and more. Members often arrange cruises to the San Juan Islands, Desolation Sound, and other parts of British Columbia and the Salish Sea. We choose our cruise, marina rendezvous, and events schedule each year by member nominations.
We participate in Tacoma Yacht Club’s Daffodil Festival in April, Seattle Yacht Club's Opening Day of Boating in May, and the Des Moines Yacht Club's South Sound Opening Day of Boating in May. We attend the Seattle Boat Show in January. We’ll often arrange land cruises, like spending a long weekend in Port Townsend to enjoy the Kinetic Fair in October.
As a recognized boating club in the region, we also enjoy invitations to yacht club commodore balls around Puget Sound. These fun formal dinner/dances honor the clubs' commodores. Members often fill tables at commodore events.
