There will be a total of six stops in Canada and in the San Juan Islands. Join us for the entire trip or any part that works with your schedule.

Please contact Randy with any questions
Woman, Captain, Rebel tells the extraordinary tale of Iceland's daring sea captain who not only solved the country's most notorious robbery of the early 1800s, she did it in a world run by men. This is a true story that reads like a work of fiction - a real page turner!
Port Book & News has several copies for us at 20% off - cheaper than Amazon and you can have it today to be ready for our meeting.
Join us Monday, June 12 at 6PM in the PAYC Clubhouse!
Port Angeles Maritime Festival
PAYC is joining with the Port of Port Angeles and the PA Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the Port’s 100th anniversary during the Maritime Festival on Saturday & Sunday, June 10th & 11th. This is going to be a large celebration with all sorts of activities taking place all the way from our clubhouse to the city pier. Planned events include boat tours, sailboat rides provided by the PAYC Community Boating Program, rescue demonstrations by the Coast Guard, harbor tours with members of the Port administration, Power Squadron Vessel Safety Checks, and various vendors, including a food truck type food court.

PAYC is responsible for several of the activities.
1. The boat parade starting near the club and going down to city pier on Saturday starting at 10 am. We will need a boat captain to get the boats lined up and the procession moving. We are hoping for a large turn out from both club members and boat haven slip holders, as well as the Coast Guard, Sheriff’s Patrol Boat, Customs and Border Protection, and maybe Fish and Wildlife.
2. We will be co staffing a tent with the PAYC Community Boating Program during both days. CBP will be providing sail boat rides and it will be a great time for members to meet the public and talk about our club.
Please help us out manning a booth by signing up here
3. Our big event is the night of Saturday the 10th. We are going to be hosting an open house. This is our opportunity to show folks what makes our club so special. We will need a lot of help to make this work smoothly...all hands-on deck kind of thing. We are going to have a food truck, so we don’t have to worry about food service, but the bar will be open to the public. We hope to have some raffles, music...maybe sea shanties...and a few other activities. To make this work, we will need folks to help set up and decorate, staff the door, help with inside chores, clean up afterward, and most importantly, mixing and mingling. Just welcoming guests and talking to them will be very important.
Race To Alaska Movie Night
The Race to Alaska (R2AK) is an annual whimsical human and wind powered boat race from Port Townsend to Ketchican. That means no motors on the boat at all.
They recently made a movie about the R2AK and Tony Billera got us permission to show it to you and your friends for free!!!!
Come to the clubhouse at 6PM on Saturday, April 22nd and bring a friend with you to experience all the thrills of this annual R2AK adventure without getting wet!
The bar will be open from 6-6:30 to get a drink and some popcorn. Then we'll close the bar and start the movie.
After the movie is over, we'll open the bar again while new member and R2AK alumnus Lilly Kuehl has offered to answer your questions about the race.
