The Southern California Fleet is looking forward to hosting the international Change of Watch in January of 2018. The weekend will be held at the Jamaica Bay Inn in Marina del Rey (which is approximately five miles north of the Los Angeles Airport).

To make reservations at the Jamaica Bay Inn, call them direct at 310-823-5333 and ask for the Classic Yacht Association group. Our Group Rate is $192/night.

Besides our important board meetings, we have planned several outings and dinners. The welcome cocktail party will be held aboard the 105’ 1929 classic yacht, SOBRE LAS OLAS. In addition, a classic yacht harbor cruise is planned, as well as our traditional Change of Watch Banquet.

We will be hosting a Friday bus trip to the Reagan Presidential Library to see decades of archived treasures and where you will go onboard the 707 Air Force One that ferried 7 Presidents all over the world. After lunch at the Reagan Library, we go on to the Nethercutt Museum which Autoweek Magazine says is one of the five greatest auto museums in America.

We hope you will all plan to attend and enjoy our typical nice WARM winter weather. See you there.
Safe Boating,

Commodore Rick Olson

Bell Street Classic Weekend

The Pacific Northwest Fleet of the Classic Yacht Association in conjunction with the Port of Seattle will once again sponsor the Bell Street Pier Classic Rendezvous as part of the Seattle Waterfront Classic Weekend, June 16 and 17 at Pier 66 on Seattle's downtown waterfront.  Over forty classic motor yachts, many of them built prior to World War II, will welcome visitors throughout this Father's Day weekend.  This event represents the largest gathering of classic yachts on the West Coast.  Admission to all show sites is complimentary.
 

This year, the Bell Street Pier Classic Rendezvous will feature a Marque Vessel Class: TBD On Friday June 15th, 2018 the classic yachts will participate in a Sail-In Parade along the waterfront prior to their arrival at Bell Harbor at 4 pm.  An excellent view of the yacht parade will be available from Myrtle Edwards Park or from any of the downtown piers between 2 and 4 pm.  
 

Stay Tuned for the 2012 Poster - Coming Soon!

The public is invited to the Bell Harbor Marina docks to view the classics on Saturday the 16th from 10 am to 4 pm, and on Sunday the 17th (Father's Day) from 10 am to 4 pm.  Many of the boats will be available for boarding, and guests are asked to wear soft-soled shoes.  Visitors will be asked to vote for their favorite yacht.  The winning boat's name will be inscribed on a permanent plaque on display at Bell Harbor.

The Classic Yacht Association was formed in 1970, dedicated to the promotion, preservation, restoration and maintenance of fine old power driven pleasure craft.  Almost 300 vessels are currently registered nationwide, with many located in the greater Puget Sound area.
