Memorial Day Joint Weekend Cruise with the Rainier YC to the Bremerton YC facilities
Saturday to Monday
For many years, GHYC and the Rainier Yacht Club got together for a joint cruise to the Bremerton Yacht Club docks. After 2019, the cruise was discontinued. This year, we're bringing it back again by popular demand!
In the past there have been a number fun games played to keep the cruisers occupied and entertained: the dating game, name that tune, etc.. So come participate, join in with fellow yacht club members from both clubs, and make it another great event!
Let's find out why the original tradition stood for 40+ years!
Drive-Ins are welcome so come join the fun...you still need to register!
On Saturday, Bremerton slip holders head out on their own cruise, leaving their slips and facilities available for us. We come in on Saturday, dock in their slips, enjoy their marina facilities on Sunday, and on Monday, we head home before the slip holders come back.
An interesting concept!
This year's plan looks something like this:
Arrival (after 12:00 noon)-get into your assigned slip!
BBQ Burgers & Dogs + fixings, salads- RYC
Not So Newlywed Game- RYC
Big breakfast at the clubhouse - RYC
Wine Tasting- Gary Sleeger - GHYC
BBQ Steaks "grill your own"- GHYC
Live Music Dancing
(Steaks & sides provided by the club)
Michael Jaap Band - GHYC
Continental breakfast at clubhouse - GHYC
Memorial Day Ceremony
Clean up the Bremerton YC facility - ALL
Reminder...arriving boats will not be allowed at Bremerton Yacht Club until Saturday noon!!!
While you are encouraged to bring children on the cruise, there will be no special programming for them this year.
Register for the cruise through the GHYC website. If coming by boat, you MUST click on both Cruise Registration AND Slip Registration!
It's also possible to drive in for Friday or Saturday or both, but you still need to register on the website.
If coming by powerboat, you will be asked about the minimum height of your boat, with antennas, radar arch, and all the tall stuff lowered as much as possible. Many of the Bremerton slips are in covered sheds or boathouses that will limit our occupancy.
Cruise charges are estimated to be around $65 pp for the entire cruise, $29 for Saturday dinner and dancing alone, billed to your Club accounts after the fact.
There will be no charge for your slip.
