Port Ludlow Marina March 16-17



       


We had a great start to our 2019 Cruising Season with the cruise to Port Ludlow marina last weekend.  11 boats and several people came by cars to have fun celebrating Saint Patrick's Day with food and games.  People put out their best to enter the best Irish food and best green food contest. And we had some wonderful entries for the write your own limerick contest.  Once again it became apparent that our club is full of members with talent!  Many thanks go to Valerie and James on SV Isola for hosting the weekend.  The prizes were much appreciated. Valerie served a wonderful breakfast on Sunday morning with cheese, fruit, and home made muffins.  Delicious!!


This cruise was also the first Pursuit Race which gave everyone a chance to unfurl their sails and take on the challenge of racing downwind, upwind and no wind.  At one point we were treated with a view of snow covered mountains from all directions (the Oympics, Cascades, Mount Rainier and Mount Baker).  Add in the warmth of the sunshine and we had a truly wonderful weekend  being on the water!
