CYC Winter Speaking Series

by Evin Moore

Divers recovering beer from the shipwreckSeattle’s Corinthian Yacht Club will be hosting a series of Friday evening talks this February. The talks cover a wide range of topics, from cruising Vancouver Island to exploring Croatia’s past by boat. The talks are engaging and sure to excite any mariner.

On February 1, Chris Young explains how he sailed his 47’ ketch Raven up the Inside Passage and down Vancouver Island with a rotating crew. Chris will detail how to explore highlights like Chatterbox Falls, Hot Springs Cove, and Tofino.

On February 8, come meet the crew of team Sail Like A Girl (pictured right), winners of the 2018 R2AK. Hear what motivated them to take up the grueling 750-mile trek to Ketchikan, the challenges nature threw at them along the way, and how getting out of their comfort zone changed them.

Sue Drake and a panel of crew members on February 15 will talk about the Baja Ha-Ha Cruising Rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas. Highlights of the event, the perspective of first timers, and why many come back again and again.

Finally, on February 22, hear Eric and Karrie Sanderson detail their experience flying to Croatia and bareboat chartering to an area steeped in history.

Social hour with the bar opening at 1800 hours and dinner are included in the program that runs from 1900 to 2100 hours at the CYC Clubhouse at Shilshole Marina. For more information, call (206) 789-1919 or go to cycseattle.org/events.
