Northern Century Regatta - Aug 18 - 20 

Ahoy sailors of AYC! This Friday, The Northern Century, the biggest regatta of the year starts off the tanker dock when Colin Emsley aboard his lovely new lobster style cruiser the "Deanna J" fires the cannon. This is the 10th edition of this brutal challenge. As of today just two AYC boats have stepped up to meet the challenges of the Salish Sea. Boats from 70' down to a diminutive 24' are arriving at our friendly little club Friday night for a hearty meatball sandwich and a cup of grog before shoving off on this adventure. C'mon now you KNOW you want to be there. Please get registered so my Italian grandmother knows how many balls need rolling!
Registration is open

The annual Northern Century race is a 100 mile excursion through the San Juan Islands.

AYC, C of C & POA

On September 12th (Tuesday morning) the Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with AYC, is sponsoring a POA Commissioners forum. AYC club members are invited to attend. If you wish to ask questions or raise issues with the POA commissioners (and candidates) then please plan on attending this event at AYC. More details as they become available from the chamber."
