Fleet Captain

Our monthly cruises offer a great time to have fun with friends and visit interesting locations throughout Puget Sound.  GHYC hosts monthly cruises year round.  There is even the occasional impromptu informal cruise where members gather at a favorite marina or drop the hook and raft up at a favorite anchorage. 

Cruise Captains and their Assistant Captains plan the scheduled cruises and ensure that members are aware of available activities and attractions.  The Fleet Captain takes care of the moorage planning, leaving the Cruise Hosts to plan all the fun! 

Even when the weather is less than perfect, a good time is virtually guaranteed.  

The Covid-19 pandemic dramatically altered our cruising in 2020, 2021, and continues to do so in 2022.  Masking protocol, social distancing, and limited social gathering requirements have changed the nature of cruising as we adapt to the "new normal" in social behavior.  Within those guidelines though, our Cruise Captains are only limited by their creativity and ingenuity to develop new alternative activities to keep their fellow cruisers interested and excited.  How creative can you be?  Come and join us!

Going forward, I'd like to try to get at least four members to volunteer as Cruise Captains for each cruise, two with prior experience and two not necessarily with any.  This should minimize any anxiety on the part of newbies and will hopefully get more people interested and involved.  We have an extensive group of experienced people, let's help them extend their knowledge to those with less!
