We're taking it inside! Join STYC for a brand new race on Lake Washington. Everyone is welcome!

C'mon Freshies! We're bringing the racing to you this February. STYC starts all it's races at Shilshole, until now! Join us for a fun new race on Lake Washington. This race isn't just for the Freshies though. All those Shilshole and Elliot Bay Salty boats will benefit from a nice fresh water bath, so bring her on in to Lake Washington.

First place gets a pound of bacon. This is not a joke. Do you have what it takes to bring home the bacon?

Skipper Meeting will be at Kirkland Public Dock 9:30 AM
Awards will be at Anthony's in Kirkland at 7:00 PM
Make a weekend of it and book a slip to stay!  PARTY IN KIRKLAND!!!

Commodore Words


Let me begin by saying thanks to our outgoing commodore Shannon Renner. She has been a tireless helmsman at the club for the last two years. If you have been out on the water racing--she was probably on the committee boat. If you were at one of our parties--she was there and probably cooked the lasagna too. If you had a question, an email, an issue with something--she was on it. Can anyone ask for anything more in a commodore? Huge love goes out to Shannon from all of us on the board, in the membership, and the sailing community at large! 

Speaking of the board! We are looking for a Vice Commodore to help work the helm with me! Its a fun job and a big commitment but you mostly drink beer and sail're probably already over qualified! If you think you might be up to the challenge give me a call. I really do need the help. 

I am very excited to be taking on this role at a time when there is so much great stuff going on. Here are some of the things we are looking forward to this year (to name a few!): 

We'd like to welcome to the board our newest At-Large Members; Laney Gale (of Blue Martini fame), Jarred Swalwell (Elixir), Mike Danger Adams (Too Hip To Quit). When you see them out there give a hearty Ahoy! 

For those of you that have been around the club for a while it is hard to imagine a Sloop Tavern Yacht Club with out Carol Pearl. Her passing last year has left an immeasurable hole in the club, the community and in many of our hearts. Fair winds, Carol.   

Lastly.....Keeping the Sloop running like a fine-oiled Atomic-4 is not a job any one person can or should take credit for. It's a team. And like any team it takes cooperation and commitment if we want great outcomes. The Sloop has thrived since the 1976 by having a dedicated group of sailors volunteer their time. If you are still reading this paragraph that means you want to help. Email me or anyone on the board and chip in however you can. Its easy and you will enjoy your membership in a whole new way. 

See you all out on the water!
