Annual Shakedown Cruise

The weather gods smiled on the AYC Shakedown Cruise on April 11-13. The sunshine was matched by a warm welcome from the Oak Harbor Yacht Club at their usual Friday night cook-your-own-burger bash. Only two boats made the trip through the channel, but several cars made it over the Pass. On Saturday evening, cruisers shared wine and hors d’oeuvres on the dock and then went into town for dinner at Jazzbones, which is just a pleasant walk from the marina.

On the way home on Sunday, In the Mood had the shifting linkage break just as Phil and Madelyn were coming into the marina at Cap Sante. So they had to shift some stuff, and then shift out of gear before they slid into their slip. Mad & Phil were really busy for a minute, demonstrating that “shakedown” cruises can shake out some problems!

The cruisers were:
  • Phil & Madelyn Case (In the Mood)
  • Bill & Brenda Cheaqui
  • Dave & Karen Thomson
  • Marv Klinger
  • Wayne & Andra Schaub
  • Doug & Carol Hansen
  • Warren & Lori Keuffel,
  • Dave & Pat Malsed (Wildfire)
  • Maury & Helene Fink
