7th Annual Autumn Equinox Cruise to Poets Cove Resort and Spa
 
Every year the Autumn Equinox marks a day of equal light and darkness.  A meaning of the Celtic Autumn Equinox Alban Elfed is “Light of the Water.” Around the world, from Persia to China, the end of the summer and the beginning of autumn is a special time.  In the tradition of celebrating the end of the season, this popular and intimate cruise is one of our most popular, in part because of the friendships, the enjoyment of the Saturna Island Wine & Harvest Festival, as well as relaxing in one of the nicest locations in the San Juan and Gulf Islands.
 
WE CURRENTLY HAVE SEVERAL ROOMS IN THE INN AVAILABLE AT OUR SPECIAL RATE, BUT YOU NEED TO CONTACT JOHN GARGETT (360) 656-5700 TO CONFIRM YOUR ROOM THIS WEEK.
 
Additional details can be found on the BYC Website on our cruising pages (www.cruising.byc.org)

STEVE ROSS'S CONTEST THIS WEEK: 

Okay, let me try this posting one more time....Thanks for your patience.  [This month's Jib Sheet editor, Kathy Brown]

Bob and Jane Simica correctly identified the Cliffs of Moher in last week’s photo.
 
Most of you have seen this week’s place on the big screen – but it is NOT Braveheart’s Castle!

Send your guesses about what they are to Steve Ross at steve.ross@wwu.edu.

Special Joint Invitational Cruise with the Anacortes Yacht Club
 

The ABC challenge is a race to Blakely island Marina on Saturday, September 24th.

This is a race that has quite a tradition but has been dormant for the past few years. It is being revived this year and the post race event will be at the Blakely Marina on September 24th and 25th

We have spoken for the Blakely Marina this year and they will take reservations for boats that wish to stay over.  Please make your own reservations directly with the marina and tell them that you are part of the Anacortes / Bellingham group (or they may not take your reservation).

Cruisers that wish to attend are also invited and encouraged and do not need to be in the race to participate in the afternoon/evening activities.

Whether you are cruising or racing, please register on the Anacortes Yacht Club web site at www.anacortesyachtclub.org under event registration.  Also, please indicate which yacht club you are with.
