    • Port Orchard Marina
    Christmas is just around the corner and New Years is one week later.  Many years ago several of our members would gather for New year's Eve at a local marina and celebrate the incoming new year.  After conversations with some members with cruisers we thought it would be fun to revive our tradition. 
    This year the new year is on Sunday so our get together would start as early as Friday.  Port Orchard Marina was chosen because of the many slips available and we can reserve a shelter for a BBQ and gathering.  It is also my home port so we would have a vehicle for beer run's, etc. 
    Those members with runabouts or who just want to drive can stay at the Comfort Inn, 2 blocks from the marina. Reservations are available at Port Orchard but really aren’t necessary because of the number of slips in the guest moorage. Let me know if you will be participating so we can plan an appropriate agenda.

    • Portage Bay/Montlake Cut

    Sponsored by the Seattle Yacht Club, its history is over 100 years old.

    The theme for this year's opening of yachting season is "Game On".

    We will try to have a Friday night dinner, a Saturday morning breakfast (last year at the Bay Cafe was nice!). Members are welcome to go to Queen City Yacht Club for dinner and dancing Saturday afternoon and evening.

    More details available later.

    Please contact our chapter President Corrine Lucas to help with this event -

    • Stehekin National Park

    The Stehekin Odyssey begins promptly at 9AM from Chester Morse City Park/Marina in Chelan, WA. The early departure assures the most reliable calm water for the two-hour, 55 mile boat ride up Lake Chelan to Stehekin National Park.

    Members take hikes, walk 2 miles up the road to The Bakery for amazing food for breakfast or lunch. Rent bikes & ATV's to explore the area, visit the 100 year old orchard, the old schoolhouse, visit the falls, go for boat rides, relax and even nap!

    There are usually two groups, leaving Tuesday & Wednesday mornings at 9AM when calm water is the norm. Or come up anytime on your own, with a buddy boat, but the lake can get rough. There  is no cell service. Ferry service is also available. The park has great accommodations. Call Charlene 509 449-5224 to make your reservations, and mention our ACBS boat group. Reserve ASAP as the lodging is usually full by July. We return to Chelan Friday morning at 9AM.

    • Lake Chelan

    This is one of our premier events of the year! We are invited by the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum to have a boat show at Chester Morse City Park in Chelan, WA. Our boats should be at the dock by  Friday evening, or no later than 8AM Saturday.

    Tentatively planned is a Friday night Welcome Reception at Campbell's Resort, a noon boat parade, a Saturday night BBQ dinner with a band for your listening and dancing pleasure. Sunday we leave the marina at 9AM for a run up to Manson for a group buffet breakfast at the Casino, followed by a Poker Run.

    Most members stay next door at Campell's resort, 509 682-2561. Mention Mahogany & Merlot for the discounted rate.

    Please consider the amazing Pre-Event, Tuesday-Friday, starting with a 9AM departure for the 55 mile run up Lake Chelan to Stehekin National Park.
