Since 1969 the CYA has become a major influence in the growing awareness and appreciation of the classic motoryacht. The Association is very active with a yearly agenda of yachting and social activities that focus on the unique craftsmanship and designs of the classic era.

Kiyi is a classic Pacific Northwest design by Leigh Coolidge, built by the Schertzer Brothers on Lake Union. Her hull is Port Orford cedar over bent oak frames, and her house is all teak. Her original owner supplied supplied all the wood, and spent $5,280 for her construction at the Schertzer yard at the foot of Stone Way.
Fantail designs were not common on vessels less than about 65-feet, since they tend to reduce space available for accommodations. But with her mere 10-foot beam, the effect on the 50-foot long Kiyi is stunning.
Members are cordially invited to the 2018 Change of Watch banquet for the CYA Pacific Northwest Fleet.
The banquet will be held on October 27, 2018 in the Fireside Room at the Seattle Yacht Club, 1807 East Hamlin Street, Seattle, Washington, 98112.
As it is the Saturday before Halloween, period attire is suggested, but not required.
The evening begins at 5:30 pm with passed hors d’oeuvres, a no-host bar, and dancing to the sound of jazz vocalist, Emma Caroline Baker.
Our sit-down dinner starts at 6:30 with a Caesar Salad followed by your choice of Slow Roasted Prime Rib of Beef; Grilled Filet of Salmon; or Spinach and Roasted Garlic Tortellini. Assorted petit fours, coffee, or tea will complete the meal.
The Change of Watch ceremony will begin after dinner followed by the 2018 Fleet Awards. After the fleet awards you are invited to stay for more conversation with friends old and new.
