Anacortes First Fun Friday - December 1

AFFF is coming this Friday with bells on Dec 1 at 7pm.  It's a big night in Anacortes.  The city tree lighting and entertainment begins downtown at 6pm. When you get cold enough, head on over to the club at 7pm for this month's AFFF event. We will be trimming the AYC Christmas tree, listening to carols and toasting the beginning of the season with hot buttered rums at the bar. This is a family affair with cookie decorating and hot cocoa for the kids. Make it a grand evening all around.

Regular Social Hours will begin as usual with the Bar open at 5:30pm.

AYC Reciprocal Dock - Temporary Relocation

High winds experienced this last week have caused unexpected damage to the end ties of O dock.   The Cap Sante Marina have temporarily moved the AYC reciprocal slip to C 58. We have placed signage on O dock, and updated our website as well.   We do not have an estimated repair date at this time.

Can't register?

There is a glitch in our registration forms and no one seems to know how to fix it. When submitting your credit card to pay, an error message pops up immediately saying your card has been denied. The workaround is to keep trying. Your credit card is probably just fine. Close the error and click submit again. Repeat until it works. It might take 3 tries, it might take 10. I wish I could offer more but at least you won't have to re-enter the card number every time.
