Today (12/4/2019) we said goodby to one of the founding members of the Sloop Tavern Yacht Club. Peter Martinson owned Nany Pua, a Pearson 36 (39874), and was involved in nearly every aspect of our club. He was on our board of directors many times, and his name is listed on the original Articles of Incorporation of the club from 1978. With his great friends present he peacefully passed away today. Peter & Patty were fixtures at the Sloop Tavern for years and years.
RIP Peter & Patty
There will be a celebration of life at the Sloop Tavern, on Saturday, January 11, at 1:00 PM. We would love for all his family and friends to come and celebrate with us and maybe raise a couple of Rainier's in this great mans honor.

Here we are at the end of the season again. We have one more event and this year it aims to be a doozy. The STYC Christmas PartyTM is just a week away. Grab your sweaters, grab an appetite (Leonard of Mystery Bay Seafood will be catering), grab a friend, defrost your liver and head on down to the Ballard VFW! Doors at 6pm. Oh, and we will be raffling off prizes from West Marine and maybe even a haul-out or two. Wait, reading this now….there will also be a LIVE BAND!! So getcher lazy buns off the couch and Join. Our. Hootenanny!
The theme I keep coming back to is Gratitude. As an organization we are so very grateful to have members as fun and wonderful as you all! And, of course, we wouldn’t be able to do anything as an organization without the help of our amazing volunteers and volunteer board members. They are the ones I am most grateful for this year. And if you have the opportunity, please let them know how thankful you are too!
Speaking of board members! We have a nearly full slate of nominees for this years election! If you'd like to be considered for one of our board positions email me as soon as you can. The deadline is fast approaching.
Also, I am extremely proud to announce the formation of our Race Committee. Our Race Committee members have been hard at work the last few months getting our race program organized and ready for the 2020 race season. Their goal is to take the work that had previously been done by just one person and spread it across the group. This smart, young (ok, mostly young) group of sailboat racing enthusiasts is in search of a Race Chair. If you feel like you are ready and have the leadership skills we should talk. This is a great way to give back to the club...and you even get you own custom embroidered hat!
