Planning for this years rally is on hold due to the corona virus.  Here's last year blurb:  Weekend rally based at the Port of Everett. We will be at South Guest Dock 1 - note the change in guest dock location from last year. The dock is just past Anthony’s HomePort as you approach the marina from the south. A high-resolution marina map is available at http://www.portofeverett.com/home/showdocument?id=11323

Seattle-area boats are invited to sail in convoy up to Everett Friday evening.  We will leave Meadow Point buoy to Port at 2 PM GPS time (first boat to tie up at Everett has bragging rights). Convoys from other ports will be arranged as needed based on expected attendance.

We have 250' of guest dock space reserved at South Guest Dock 1, available on a first-come, first served basis (pay for your own moorage when you arrive at the marina). Additional moorage space should be available elsewhere in the marina if our reserved space is all taken.

Friday night's gathering at Anthony's Woodfire Grill starts at 7:30 PM (pay your own way).  The Woodfire Grill is the third building east from the water (it's not the Anthony’s Homeport building).

Saturday we will have an informal distance race, course dependent on conditions, to be announced at a 9AM skippers meeting on the dock.  If it is really light, we may just make it around Gedney (aka Hat Island), which would be about 8 miles round trip.  If we have nice wind, we will head up to the green can #1 at the head of Holmes Harbor (about 27 miles round trip).  Start time will be 10 AM, starting at the Green Can Buoy “AO” which is 0.8 miles south east of the mouth of the Everett harbor.   We will make the course decision Friday evening, and distribute it by email.   We will calculate corrected times per PHRF ratings if you have one. 

Saturday evening at 6:00 we will have pizza party on the party barge at the guest dock. Sunday morning will feature a continental breakfast from 7:30-8:30 followed by a convoy back to our respective home ports. $10 covers Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast.  PLEASE RSVP TO JONATHAN KALLAY at yoni at kallay.net (substitute @ for 'at') including how many people you're bringing and what meals you plan to attend.

If you have more crew than berths, consider the hotel next to marina, http://www.innatportgardner.com.

Hope to see you there!
