Starting at 10:00 a.m. between the Committee boat and the Marmion Island Day Mark, proceed north into Stephens Passage, down the back side of Douglas Island, finishing within ½-mile of the small island just past Point Young in Admiralty Cove, on an imaginary line bearing 280 magnetic to Scull Island. Plan to anchor in Admiralty Cove overnight, with beach bonfire (weather permitting).
To promote the appreciation of sailing and foster a community and culture committed to advancing both sailing and sailing education in the Juneau area.
Leg 1 (Saturday) - Starting at 9:30 a.m. between the Committee Boat (or, for late arrivals, the last satellite earth station at the end of the Rock Dump) and the Mayflower Island Day Mark, proceed south down Gastineau Channel, then south across Taku Inlet, into Stephens Passage passing Grand Island to either port or starboard (Skipper’s choice), finishing ½-mile off the entrance to Taku Harbor on an imaginary line bearing 030 magnetic to the Graves Point marker. Boats will dock/anchor overnight in Taku Harbor.
A new event as a part of the Spring SEAS party; Used sailing/boating equipment sale from 3pm on, SEAS BBQ and spring party from 4:30 on. Bring your old tackle - sell it or trade it for something else, before and during the SEAS party.
We have a two part program starting at 6pm.
Subjects to be covered are:
- Local experiences/ trips (examples by a few members, with plenty of discussion by all).
- Spring maintenance projects, again examples by members – probably including a downtown haul-out experience, and a few yard repairs, possibly discussion on rigging.
A fun way to find out more about what sailing opportunities there are around here.
In any case, the event is hosted down town at NorthWind, 126 Seward Street.
