July Happenings

July 4th Raft-Up in Fidalgo Bay

It's party time on Fidalgo Bay.  Join other AYC members for a raft-up on July 4th to socialize and watch the fireworks.  Please sign-up online if plan to attend.

July 15-17; West Sound; OIYC dock

The picnic shelter can accommodate quite a few people but dock space, which is "first come, first served," is more limited.  Therefore some boats may need to anchor / raft out.


  • Friday - 5:00 Happy Hour, as always, bring your drink and a nibble to share.
  • Saturday - 9:30. Van trips to Eastsound
  • 3:30. Water golf on the dock
  • 6:00. BBQ at OIYC building. Bring something to burn and something to share and something to drink

July 23 is AYC's 125th Anniversary.  Mark your calendar for the special celebration being planned.  Be sure to read the club's history!

Don't forget buoy racing on Wednesday nights in Fidalgo Bay.  The club is open to all members every Wednesday night in the summer after racing for drinks and a pay-at-the-door dinner.

Distance races to Viti Rocks on July 9th and Lummi Island on July 30th.
