I-5 Cruise: Seattle Boat Show
Jeff Johnson, Pilot
Attention fellow Orcas Island Yacht Club members! It's time to sign up for the I5
cruise! I am looking for 40 brave souls willing to dust off their compasses, fire up the
chart plotters, and find their way down to the Residence Inn on Lake Union (Jan 30-Feb 1).
We are going to have a great time exploring yachts, evaluating new boating accessories
and just having fun.
On Jan 30th from 3-5pm we are all invited by Fraser Yachts, courtesy of OIYC member
and Charter Broker Diane Strollo, to have appetizers and fine wine on board the 70 ft.
Delta trawler SEALION. Following this great event, those interested will head over to the
Chandler's Crabhouse to further the evening with superb foods and fellowship.
On the 31st, after a day of exploring the Seattle Boat show, we are headed out for an
early evening cruise aboard m/v NORTHERN LIGHT courtesy of Wes Heinmiller. A 4:30 pm
afternoon cruise on Lake Union and the surrounding waters with wine and spirits provided
by m/v NORTHERN LIGHT. We will culminate this fun event at 6 pm with a superb buffet dinner
at the Queen City Yacht Club.
Feb 1st will conclude this cruise with a leisurely day spent cruising / exploring further
boat show activities or shopping Seattle at one's own pace.
