Southern Salish Sea Cruise

Sunday, July 15, 2018 to Friday, July 20, 2018


If you like the South Sound or if you have never been down that way, then here is a cruising opportunity that you should not miss.  See the the fabulous agenda below, coordinated by Ken Meyer.

For those of you who are not familiar with the term 'SALISH SEA" please note that it is a very large body of water that extends from Olympia in the South - all the way up to just beyond Desolation Sound to the North. (The name Salish Sea has been officially recognized by American and Canadian geographical boards.)

This cruise covers some often neglected, but breathtakingly beautiful cruising grounds, and we're especially excited this year to show off these waters to our Canadian friends, since we are so often the recipients of their hospitality when we cruise north.


Prepare your boats and calendars for this year's Salish Sea South Sound Cruise beginning in Longbranch July 15th and ending in Des Moines on Friday July 20 where we will connect with the fleet for the Des  Moines Waterfront Festival July 20 through Sunday July 23.

The planned cruise will begin the afternoon of Sunday, July 15th in Longbranch at the marina with a Sunday afternoon hamburger fry at the waterfront home of member Mike Wollaston ( NON-CHALANT, SEA WITCH, NW PROPULSION MUSEUM). Monday through Thursday we will cruise a yet to be determined route with possibilities that include Olympia, Jarrell Cove, Oro Bay, Gig Harbor, Quartermaster Harbor, and Tacoma Marina. The Friday July 20th destination will be the Des Moines Waterfront Festival (hosted by Bill and Patti Linscott; SUNSHINE).  Activities, there, for the remaining weekend will be a pot luck dinner, car show, boat show and street fair. 

Whether you can attend the cruise and the festival, both or in part, please let me know. Register separately with Ken Meyer for the cruise and Bill and Patti Linscott for the DesMoines Classic Car and Boat Festival.   I will be updating the event as we firm up destinations.

CYA Waterland Weekend at Des Moines

The Wooden Boat Show at the Waterland Festival in Des Moines occurs on July 20- 21-22. CYA members are invited to cruise in and join the fun. This year, the CYA “South Sound Cruise” finishes up on Friday, July 20, in Des Moines; a great opportunity to enjoy a final weekend with great events surrounding you at the Marina.

The Des Moines’ Waterland Festival is a precursor to Seattle’s Seafair celebration. Saturday’s Waterland Parade provides small town flavor with marching bands and other community organizations in the procession. Seafair princesses, Seafair Pirates and Seafair Clowns join in the parade. This year promises to bring more of the activities close into the Marina, with fun for all ages.

With respect to the Wooden Boat Show, our goal over the years has been to make this weekend a relaxed boat show with more of a cruising destination feel for those attending. Our classic wooden boats will be on display at a very popular gathering spot for public viewing and appreciation. The boat show schedule, however, allows participating boaters time to also enjoy other Waterland activities. We want to provide great value and convenience for the boaters with events specifically planned for those attending.

Some highlights:

  • Boat show hours are short in duration: Saturday, 10am to 4pm.  Sunday, 10am to 1pm.  A “Thank You and Awards” gathering on Sunday at 1pm concludes our weekend.
  • Weekend moorage (Arrive Friday–Leave Sunday) is a flat rate of $50, which includes power.
  • Night time dock security will be provided (Friday and Saturday).
  • Fuel price discounts of 10 cents per gallon will be offered to participating boats (Friday-Sunday). This is a plus for those returning from the CYA South Sound cruise.
  • Boaters aren’t confined to their boats. The Waterland weekend is full of activities, which are immediately adjacent to the Marina and can be enjoyed by boaters throughout the days. These include:
  • Friday Night Arrival: BBQ hamburgers/hot dogs on the dock, hosted by the Marina Staff.


  • Wooden Boat Show: (10am to 3pm).
  • Farmers Market: (10am to 2pm). at the top of the ramp, with food/crafts/music.
  • Art Walk: (11am to 12pm). For those boaters who want to stretch their legs and see some art – The Des Moines Art Commission will give a guided tour of art sculptures in the Des Moines Marina.
  • Wooden Boat Social: (4 to 5:45pm) at the Linscott’s home adjacent to the Marina. Appetizers and fun before walking to the parade. (Appetizers provided, but it is a BYOB gathering.)
  • Waterland Parade: (5:45 to 7pm) The Des Moines Waterland Parade on Marine View Drive (2 blocks from Marina/Linscott Home): Enjoy the Seafair Princesses, Seafair Pirates and Clowns.  Also includes bands, drill teams and other community organizations in the procession.
  • Dinner after the Parade: On your own, with restaurant choices in easy walking distance.


  • Continental Breakfast: (8 to 9:30am). On the dock – hosted by Marina Staff.
  • Vintage Car Show: In the Marina north parking lot.
  • Wooden Boat Show: 10am to 1pm.
  • Wooden Boat Thank You and Awards Gathering: 1pm.  Last event before departing at your leisure for homeports.

We hope you can come join in the fun. Please call or email us for reservations and docking plan accommodations.
