Commodore's Cruise/CYA PNW Opening Day

The Commodore's Cruise has traditionally been held on the day after our Change of Watch dinner, which was in February.  However, since we've change to having our COW dinner in November, the Commodore's Cruise is now a "floating" date - to be determined at the discretion of the Commodore.

Our new Commodore for 2018 is Christian Dahl, and he has selected Saturday April 28 to be our CYA Opening Day.  It is the week before the big Seattle Opening Day, so will be a great opportunity to dust off the cobwebs and get the boat out of the shed!  Details of when and where to meet will be forthcoming, so stay tuned . . .
