Wind Up Cruise
Liverpool Lou II, Wed Aug 15 2007, 02:29PM
Your “trusty” commodore is back.
I am trying to fulfill my duties and I am reminding everybody that our traditional and very popular Sucia gathering on Labor Day long weekend is approaching. As usual number of us that are stationed in Canadian waters, marinas and backyards will be towing to Blaine and launching from there. Al other guys stationed in Point Roberts will take a shortcut straight to Sucia. At this point I personally am planning to launch on Friday early afternoon and power to Sucia. We usually anchor at Fossil Bay, and our Macgregor reserved area in shallow waters is always available. Location will be confirmed the last week. If the winds are strong and not favorable we might end up in Shallow Bay.
Make your plans, cancel everything else and let’s meet there and retire the existing record of 13 boats in raft (you know 13 is not the lucky number).
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.
MYCBC membership provides you with full access to all areas of the website and the ability to participate in all activities. The modest, annual membership fee is $65 for the first year (which includes a club burgie and welcome package) and $35 per year thereafter. Membership in the club is recognized at marine stores and marinas for discounts on supplies and moorage. We also have negotiated discount insurance coverage for members. The saving you can expect will pay back your membership fee manyfold.
