Sailing appears to be done for the year, so it's obviously time to have a party! The SEAS board invites you to the annual Awards Party next Friday, November 30th, at McGivney's downtown. We've rented out the Owner's Box from 6-9pm. The 2018 awards will be presented, along with the results of the elections for the 2019 board.
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 in Favorite Channel at 9:30 a.m. between the Committee boat and the North light on Portland Island (an imaginary line bearing 195 magnetic to, and within ½ mile of the mark), proceed north, keeping Strauss Rock to starboard, into Saginaw Channel, rounding Pt. Retreat into Lynn Canal, finishing in Funter Bay on an imaginary line bearing 62 magnetic, and within a ½ mile of Clear Point.
Admiralty Rally 2018 participants included:
A Little Romance: Steve Parker and Hal Geiger;
Kyrie: Joe, Kristen, Levi, Rachael, and Megan Grieser; and

The Rally started cool but ended hot, both in terms of the weather and sailing
Saturday June 16--A Slow “Start” to Point Astley
The three participating boats, Kyrie, A Little Romance, and Thalia all left Juneau at different times—Kyrie headed to Taku Harbor the night before the start, A Little Romance started on-time and sailed to within a mile of Twin Points before running out of wind, and Thalia met up with her about that time after motoring on a late start. Upon meeting at the anchorage near the wood spit in Holkham Bay, Kyrie warmly welcomed the other two boats to raft-up to her. Icebergs could be spotted floating amid the grand scenery. Thalia’s gimballed oven had allowed roasting lemon garlic chicken and potatoes while underway. Having already enjoyed dinner, upon raft-up her crew shared leftovers with the hungry sailors on A Little Romance, the first of many food sharings among Rally participants through the week.
Leg 1 (Saturday) - Starting at 9:30 a.m. between the Committee Boat ( 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 at the entrance to Taku Harbor on an imaginary line bearing 030 magnetic to, and within ½ mile of the Grave Point Day Mark. Boats will dock/anchor overnight in Taku Harbor.
Starting at 10:00 a.m. between the Committee boat and the Marmion Island Day Mark ( an imaginary line bearing 060 magnetic to, and within ½ mile of the mark), the boats will sail ONE of these courses:
A. North into Taku Inlet, crossing an imaginary line bearing 60 magnetic to, and within ½ mile of Jaw Point, returning and crossing an imaginary line bearing 060 magnetic to, and within ½ mile of the Marmion Island Day mark.
