Commodore’s Report:


Happy New Year from the Kingpin First Mate, 2017 looks to be an interesting year,

the world is all over the place (much like me, however I will try to stay focused). Let’s all keep participating in all of the cruises and events that have been planned for this year and make this a year we will all remember.

I’m so excited for the New Years at cruise Arabella’s Marina in Gig Harbor so much fun.

Ken and I would like to see all of you join us at the various Commodores Balls, because without some CYC members to talk to they are not real exciting.

On to a much-discussed situation, seeing how the meetings have been getting smaller each month it no longer warrants paying rent for the Totem Yacht Club. Possibly the CYC would be better served to have the meetings in a restaurants banquet room. Not only would it be rent free you would be able to order the dinner you like. Please email me at kinghatteras@gmail.com with your opinion in this matter. We are paid through April at Totem Yacht Club.

Make sure you mark your calendars for the Great Seattle Boat show we are planning to attend on January 28th. Always fun to have a group going.


Wishing everyone calm seas throughout the New Year


Sharon Jobin Commodore 2017

     Fleet Captain's Report:

News from the Fleet Captain


Thanks to everyone who came to Dock Street for the Holly Jolly Cruise. We had lunch at the Harmon and everyone wore their ugly sweaters for the ugly sweater contest. I won the prize for ugliest sweater. Steve Carey won the bah humbug award since he didn't wear a sweater. We enjoyed watching the lighted boat parade put on by Tacoma Yacht Club, even though we didn't see some boats because they turned around too early. Thanks Cindy Hanson for doing great job chairing the cruise.
