Cruising and Events

The Milltown Sailing Association cruising program consists of club cruises scheduled each month of the year except December.  It also includes an active reciprocal yacht club program offering members reduced moorage costs at participating clubs around the Sound and into Canada. Click this Reciprocal Privileges link for more information!

We include shorter cruises during the winter months to local ports such as Edmonds, Kingston, and Langley.  As the days lengthen, the cruises have expand to such destinations as Port Ludlow, Brownsville, Poulsbo, Bremerton, Coupeville, and Port Hudson.  Additionally we often do a kick off cruise to the San Juan Islands in July.  All cruises are on weekends and/or three day holiday weekends whenever possible. You can leave when you'd like, travel as a group or drive over and just enjoy the festivities on the dock!  It's all up to you. 

Cruises include pot luck meals, hosted meals, excursions, and games to make the weekends more pleasurable. We invite any member to host a cruise, pick a theme and run with it! The Cruising and Events Committee coordinates making reservations well ahead of time and handles arrangements for arriving boats to be welcomed and safely moored.  We'll provide the basic set up and will guide you through the process.  All you have to do is bring the fun! Cruises are primarily to port marinas but occasionally include anchorages.  We hope to see you on one or more of our cruises this year!

The Cruising committee also plans a variety of events for the club including the Awards Banquet, Holiday parties and various other social events.  If you have any great event ideas or wish to get involved with the committee, please contact us using the links below!
