Memorial Day Cruise to Langley!

posted May 7, 2018, 3:52 PM by Caolan O'Domhnaill


This year the Memorial Day Cruise will again be to the Port of South Whidbey, Langley WA.  Our fabulous Hosts will be Bill Bond and Janet Bacon aboard the fine S/V My Sunshine. They have an eventful weekend planned for us all to enjoy.

  • Friday night: planned activities.  A portable fire pit to keep warm on the dock will likely be available.
  • Saturday morning:  Bill and Janet will provide continental breakfast (coffee, muffins, and fruit).
  • Saturday afternoon:  MSA traditional beer can sailboat races.  Participants should bring their own supplies (beer cans, string, tape, fabric, straws, sticks, rubber bands, etc). All entries must be built that day on site during allotted time and must have a sail and a mast.  No beach balls 😉. Let’s start the building anytime that day with all boats complete by 2:30.  This year, there will be 3 heats (TBD).  Prizes will be awarded for 1st place in each heat. 
  • Saturday night:  Bill will make his signature spaghetti sauce and pasta.  Everyone else is asked to bring salads or desserts that go along with spaghetti.
  • Sunday morning:  Bill and Janet will provide breakfast (freezer bag omelettes and coffee). Please bring sides to share. 
  • Sunday afternoon- Boat renaming ceremony.  Hopefully our distinguished guest from Asia renewed his VISA and will be present to do the honors.
  • Sunday evening:  Red, White, and Blue HEAVY appetizers POTLUCK.  This will be in place of dinner.
  • Monday...everyone on their own.
