Round and round we go!

Friday Nov 7th @ 1730 the doors will open at good 'ol AYC for the first party of the 2014 Holiday Season! Come on down to the clubhouse and welcome sailors from all over the Salish Sea! Here's the deal... Our neighbors at Orcas Island YC have been running the 'Round the County race for over 25 years and it has gained so much popularity they have capped the entries at 100 boats. Surf on over to OIYC.org for all the details. Anacortes is the jumping off place for most of the boats so over 500 sailors are typically wandering around town Friday night. For the past several years the AYC has opened it's doors and offered their legendary hospitality to these wayward sailors. Come join the fun! Walt is cookin, Jerry VV will set you up at the bar, Stephanie is in charge of decorations and music and videos and Andy and his crew will clean it all up when the last sailor sails out the door! This is a terrific opportunity to see some great shots of local boat in big winds, eat some delicious pasta, enjoy a refreshing libation or just enjoy the music. Bring a friend, the dark days of winter will soon be upon us and then we can do it all again at the Foulweather race/ Cruise in February! Don't forget to set your clock back, especially important for you club members that still have jobs:)
