    • Seattle Yacht Club

    We’re organizing a flotilla of ACBS boats to visit Seattle Yacht Club on Friday afternoon from 2-4PM to give rides out to the log boom. Pick up location is between covered docks 3&4.
    This gives us a great chance to treat people from all over, show them the log boom, tell them about ACBS and ‘give back’  to our hosts and visiting guests.  
    Please register if you and your boat are available. Contact Steve Snider at 206-714-2404 or

    • Sat, May 06, 2023
    • 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM
    • Portage Bay/Montlake Cut

    The theme for this year's Opening Day of yachting season is "Game On", sponsored by Seattle Yacht Club (SYC) as it has been for over 100 years! 

    We're thinking each boat could dress in a sport or game of their choice: football, baseball, pickleball, golf, whatever, etc. The more props the better. Depending on the weather you could be a golfer with an oversized umbrella. Get the idea? Bring your kids/grandkids as cheerleaders. We're in the Spirit Class so bring your enthusiasm.

    To enter the parade, we ask that each boat owner register above, entering the name of your boat. Steve has to register our group and pick up a numbered boat card for each registered boat. These cards are essential to participate in the parade.

    Registration ends April 21st for parade entry!

    2-4pm - Friday Afternoon Boat rides at SYC

    5pm - Dinner Friday night at Chinook's at Fisherman's terminal. Overnight moorage is available.

    9am - Saturday morning breakfast at the Bay Cafe at Fisherman's terminal before mustering for the parade.

    2pm - Enjoy your BYO picnic lunch at the UW Rowing dock.

    We’ll ask later how many of you will give boat rides, attend dinner and breakfast and who needs moorage.

    Contact our Committee Chairman Steve Snider to help with details and theme/decorating ideas.

    The Stehekin Odyssey begins promptly at 9AM from Chester Morse City Park/Marina in Chelan, WA. The early departure assures the most reliable calm water for the two-hour, 55 mile boat ride up Lake Chelan to Stehekin National Park.

    Members take hikes, walk 2 miles up the road to The Bakery for amazing food for breakfast or lunch. Rent bikes & ATV's to explore the area, visit the 100 year old orchard, the old schoolhouse, visit the falls, go for boat rides, relax and even nap!

    There are usually two groups, leaving Tuesday & Wednesday mornings at 9AM when calm water is the norm. Or come up anytime on your own, with a buddy boat, but the lake can get rough. There  is no cell service. Ferry service is also available. The park has great accommodations. Call Charlene 509 449-5224 to make your reservations, and mention our ACBS boat group. Reserve ASAP as the lodging is usually full by July. We return to Chelan Friday morning at 9AM.
