    Seattle Yacht Club is hosting the Women’s Boating Skills Weekend for another year!

    Started in 2018, the SYC Women’s Boating Skills Weekend is a weekend full of speakers, workshops and connections, geared especially toward women, to build skills and confidence aboard both sail and powerboats. This amazing event is returning for a 6th year, and will once again be offered to our Puget Sound female boating community.

    Attendees have joined us from all over the Puget Sound, as far south as Oregon, coming together year after year to learn, celebrate, and encourage each other in learning new skills and further empower each other to take the helm. The sharing of boating stories with new and old friends over the course of the 3 days is thoroughly enjoyed by all and not an event to miss.

    With new speakers and workshops added every year, it is an event that continues to evolve and entice attendees. Over 50 workshops offered including Boating Safety, Boat Maintenance, Electric Boating, Sailing, Communication, Navigation, Anchoring, Docking, Electronics, Chartering, Cruising the Puget Sound and Canada, Knots and Lines, Roundtables, inspiring Keynote speakers and so much more.

    • Tonsorium Bar in The Lodge; St. Edward State Park in Kenmore

    It's almost officially boating season again and time to meet at the Tonsorium Bar in The Lodge for a couple hours reprieve from the winter blues. Same Drydock rules as always; no agenda, no boats, just a couple of hours to see your PNW Fleet friends.

    The Lodge is located inside St. Edward State Park in Kenmore. Food and drinks are served at the bar. There will be tables and seating in our room. The address is:

    14477 Juanita Drive NE

    Kenmore, WA 98028

    Google maps will be confused about the entrance; enter the park and stay right at the Y in the driveway. There is signage, but it helps to know ahead of time. Parking is free if you have a Discover Pass for the park lots. A day pass for the park is $10 if you don't have a Discover Pass and there are pay boxes located around the park, or there is Valet at the hotel that is $10.

    See you all there!

    Seattle Yacht Club's official webpage for this annual event

    Some history on the event: Opening Day, the official opening of Seattle's boating season sponsored by Seattle Yacht Club, includes a celebration of many kinds of water activities. This year's festivities will include a morning of crew races, a sailboat race, and, of course, the grand Opening Day boat parade on Saturday, May 4, 2024.

    According to the 1964 reminiscences of a Seattle Yacht Club member, the first Opening Day took place in early May 1913. He recalled a parade and a regatta in Elliott Bay.

    The first Opening Day parade through the Montlake Cut was in 1920 after the Seattle Yacht Club moved to its new (and present) facilities in Portage Bay. Spectators lined both sides of the Cut to view the 25 or 30 boats as they paraded by, flying their dress flags. The boats finished the celebration with a regatta in Lake Washington sponsored by the Queen City Yacht Club.

    The Opening Day Parade and Regatta became a spring tradition, which survived the war years. Opening Day 1946, was the biggest and most festive ever. It included members of every yacht club in Puget Sound and the Royal Vancouver and the Royal Victoria Yacht Clubs from British Columbia, Canada.

    As always, the Opening Day Parade starts at noon the first Saturday in May with the blast of a cannon and the raising of the Montlake Bridge. Seattle Yacht Club's Opening Day has become the nation's largest regional celebration of water, spring and the opening of boating season.

    Opening Day in Seattle is a family affair; families decorate their boats for the festivities and parades; families spread blankets on the shoreline and spend hours watching and picnicking. Families dream of the boats they someday will own.
