THE BOAT SHOW IS OVER
and now we are
DREAMING OF AN EARLY CRUISING SEASON

If there really is a Salish Sea Sally (she would be a Chinook Salmon) and if she jumped out of the sea on GroundHog Day, I hope she didn’t see her shadow and we are in for an Early Spring. Let’s finish up those Mods and get our boats ready for another Great MYCBC Cruising Season.

Be sure to post your plans to attend our Cruises and make your reservations early.  The Confidence Cruise Registration Forms are available on their page links in the MacTivities Calendar.
