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.

November Pot Luck - November 24

Instead of the usual Five Buck Night this month we will be having a Pot Luck dinner.  Save your $5 and bring a dish to share at the club.  Break out your best casserole, side dish or dessert recipe.  Turkey dishes are strictly optional.  Bar will open at 5:30pm.  Those out-of-town family, guests, or friends are certainly welcomed to join in the dinner and socializing.  

Anacortes First Fun Friday - December 1

AFFF is coming on Dec 1 with bells on. 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.

Lost and Found

A $50 bill was lost at the club on Friday. If you found it please contact MarKay at (425) 213-6970

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.
