As of 3/22/21, the Daffodil parade will still be held but moorage in the basin will be limited to participants "traveling longer distance".
Opening Day Dock 0 has been canceled and the Parade will be virtual, with no on-the-water participation but rather a streamed collection of submitted videos and photos from the boating community.
(Please refer to the appropriate Club website for more information on either event.)
Still need a bunch of Cruise Captains
for upcoming cruises.
once you do you'll see how much fun it can be!!
Day Cruise - April 24
Boaters will take members without boats on a Day Cruise!
We are headed to "Rock the Dock" in Foss Waterway
Boaters will pickup passengers at The Gig Harbor Public Dock;
The Commodore will make boat assignments for passengers based on registration information
If you are interested in being a part of this adventure, you must register for the cruise through the website. Then, identify whether you are a boater, willing to take others on your boat, or a passenger. Only the Captain should sign up as the boater. Everyone else is a passenger, and should be individually identified when you sign up.

Our monthly cruises offer a great time to have fun with friends and visit interesting locations throughout Puget Sound. GHYC hosts monthly cruises from September through June. 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 and continues to do so in 2021. 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!
